Namkha Rinpoche visits Sera India 2008
Sera Monastery - India
March 25 – April 3, 2008
Namkha Rinpoche went for one week to Sera Monastery in the south of India. It is a monastery of the Gelug tradition with about 6000 monks. For about sixty years, monks in exile choose to study in this monastery. Most of them live together with three or four people in a single room. This way of livings brings many health and study difficulties.
Namkha Rinpoche has a strong wish to help those monks and built together with Gen Samphel a place for about 30 monks (coming from Sershul in the eastern Tibet).
This year, Rinpoche was again deeply removed by the living conditions in Sera and met many Gueshes and monks in order to find ways to make their lives better.
