Expand the monastery within the 4.4 acre land to construct a unique Buddhist University which can accommodate about 1500 people.
With these visions & challenges and with the help of an energetic team who believe in the same cause, Rinpoche has since been on an endeavor to gather people and resources to construct the Academy that is hoped to be completed by 2022.
What it is
We at Khedrup Foundation believe that more than just a religion, Buddhism is a way of life. It has something for everyone. If understood correctly, Buddhism will help one to live a life that’s more fulfilling. With this basic idea in mind, the idea of an International Buddhist Academy was born.
Monla Khedrupchen Rinpoche envisions to build an Academy that will be home to Buddhist Practitioners, lay practitioners, old people and anyone who wants to learn the values of Buddhism.
The construction project started in 2015 under the guidance Rinpoche. Currently the monastery hosts 25 monks, 2 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 educational 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 thriving global 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.
