Monasteries

Tse Chen She Dup Ling (Boudha Nath)

The sixth Tharig Rinpoche, Jamyang Dhamchoe Nyima built the Tharig Sakya Monastery, Boudha in year 1969 over the land afforded by then Chini Lama, a renowned Nepali Priest widely known as Gya Lama (1915-1983) among Tibetan Buddhists.

Had it not been Kyidong Samten Ling Gonpa and Dilyag Gonpa of Dasang Rinpoche, (1929-1992) Tharig Gonpa was first of its kind to be built in Boudanath. All other Gonpas that mushroomed later were built after the advent of Tharig Monatery. His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche (1921-2007) lived and bestowed teachings here at Tharig Monastery before he had his own Monastery (now widely known as Matrya Gonpa) built at outer periphery of Boudhanath Stupa (1984). Similarly, His Eminence Deshung Rinpoche (1915-1987) also stayed here and gave many important teachings before moving to his own Monastery, built in 1986.

Samten Phuntsok Ling (Pharping)

With a virtuous aim of ensuring a suitable seclude and serene place, free form the hustle and bustle of the town, for those who want to put what they have earlier learned into practice in the Monasteries, Tharig Rinpoche built a retreat center in Pharping in 1982. This retreat center was highly blessed by the visit and stay of His Holiness, Sakya Trizin, His Eminence Chogye Rinpoche, His Eminence Luding Khenchen Rinpoche and many other high Lamas form all four schools. Remarkably, His Eminence Luding Khenpo Junior conducted his full He-vajra retreat at this Center. Of course, this retreat center has its recognition among practitioners merely because the most venerable Khenchen Appey Rinpoche chose this retreat center for his higher practice following accomplishment of his teaching job at Sakya College. Khenchen Appey Rinpoche first came to this place in 1984 and stayed here until he started making a plan to establish an Institute in Kathmandu, where non-Tibetan speaking students can study Buddhist philosophy-now IBA (estbd 2001-). During his ten-long year's stay, he most kindly guided dozens of practitioners who conducted their retreat at Tharig retreat center.

Sa-Ngag Choe Zong (Tibet)

In about mid of sixteenth century, Tharig Monastery was first established by the highly realized master, Tharig Drupchen. Throughout her history, the Monastery was supervised by three Care-taker Rinpoches of Tharig Monastery namely Tulku Yonten, Tharig Tulku Rinpoche and Tsetsam Rinpoche in rotation in the physical absence of other two. The Monastery suffered some damages during the Cultural Revolution in 1960s and by the earth quake that shook the region in 2003. However, with the change of policy in China, the monks and laity devotees were able to rebuild the Monastery under spiritual guidance and financial assistance of the sixth Tharig Tulku, Jamyang Damchoe Nyima Rinpoche. Now, the Monastery is under the management of Khenpo Menlha, Khenpo Paksam, Lama Kunga Tsultrim, Khenpo Ngawang Sonam and others.
