No of nuns - 92  / Teachers - 5  / General staffs - 5

Karma Ngedhon Osal Choekhorling is a nunnery providing fooding and accomodation for 92 nuns.This nunnery is a little different from the other monasteries. We really don´t have different subjects like the monastries. We concentrate only on Tibetan grammar and Tibetan teachings. There are few nuns who speak good English and teach the nuns having interest. Recently returned 5 nuns from Namdroling from India are the teachers who are teaching the nuns at present. When ever our root teacher is free, he often teaches us about the Real Buddhist Studies. He gives on teachings and initiations when ever we need it.
We are very thankful to Karmapa Healthcare Project for such a great help regarding the nuns as most of them come from very poor families and can´t afford to get proper check but now can get the yearly full check up with the money we receive from the KHCP through Peter and Pia. We recently had full blood and urine test. After six months we are planning to appoint a gyanologist as most of the nuns suffer alot during their menstruation time.
We, all the nuns of this nunnery, thank Karmapas Healthcare Project and Pia and Peter and all sponsors for their great help. We are really very grateful and thankful from the bottom of our hearts. We pray for good sound health for everyone in the world.
