Lhundrup Choling Kagyu Monastery, Bhudhanilkantha, Kathmandu Valley/Nepal
Since 2012 supported by KHCP
Director: Sang Sang Rinpoche.
Questionnaire after the 2015 earthquake
- no fatalities or injuries during the earthquake
Number of inhabitants: 38 monks and 8 employees are living in the monastery.
Medical and social conditions:
The monastery is equipped with a doctor’s consultation room. Every one to two weeks, the Himalayan Medical Foundation sends a doctor to examine and treat the monks. The medication is partially provided by the doctor and partially bought by the monks themselves. All are vaccinated and nobody is suffering from severe illness.
The monastery receives annual funds from the KHCP for health care.
The building is mostly intact, at least not severely damaged. The exception is one room in the attic that has to be torn down and rebuilt.
When offered help, the monastery said that they didn’t require any but the second monastery from Sang Sang Rinpoche (Lundhrup Choeling Monastery in Eastern Nepal) and the nun’s retreat centre (Chokhor Yangtse Nunnery Retreat Centre) have been severely damaged.
Dr. Sonam Rinchen, Pia and Peter from KHCP contacted Sang Sang Rinpoche to inquire about how we can provide help.
We gave €7,000 aside for this. The monks wish to continue the collaboration with the KHCP.
