The construction project started in 2015 under the guidance of Monla Khedrupchen Rinpoche, currently the monastery hosts around 40 monks, 4 teachers and a Khenpo. With only temporary housing structures and an increasing number of monks every year, the monastery faces acute shortage of housing and study facilities. Many monks from the monastery have to be sent to other monasteries so that they may continue their education successfully.
To address this shortage of infrastructure and other pertinent issues which will only escalate with time, Rinpoche hopes to transform the Sangchen Ogyen Tsuklag Monastery into a global thriving center of learning and practicing Dharma. Rinpoche intends to develop the monastery into a supportive and compassionate environment where both monks and lay people from all walks of life are able to study and practice buddha Dharma.
