Nubri Monastery

The Nubri Monastery of Nepal (Shri Sangchen Rapten Norbu Ling Gomba) is located in an extremely remote region where there is very little in the way of a surrounding community to support it. Life there is very hard, but for those who are serious practitioners, it provides a conducive place for concentrated practice with no distractions or entertainment. Some of the students who get their basic training at Chorten Gonpa come to Nubri for more concentrated practice. Nubri is nearly half nuns and is progressive in giving them an equal footing with the monks which is unusual in Asian monasteries. Under the supervision of Dodrup Chen Rinpoche, the Nubri monastery which had been only a few residents, now has attracted a hundred monks and nuns putting a great strain on the resources. They are in critical need of funding.

In order to insure long-term support for Nubri Monastery, The Tshog Dag Foundation has established The Remote Monastery Fund (RMF). The aim is to build an endowment which can be invested and eventually produce a steady stream of funding for the Nubri Monastery. These funds will be held and invested separately from other accounts of Tshog Dag.

"Between the hermit meditating in the mountains
And the donor who provides his sustenance
There is a link that will lead them to enlightenment together.
Dedication of merit is the very heart of that link."
