Gaden Jangtse Thoesam Norling Monastery

 

The Gaden Jangtse Thoesam Norling Monastery is one of the premier centers for learning the Buddha Dharma. This monastery was founded in 1413 in Tibet . It follows the Gelugpa Tradition that was propounded by Lord Tsongkapa.

 

In 1959, the People’s Republic of China invaded Tibet . More than 1.2 million Tibetans died, and more than 600 monasteries and temples were destroyed. His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, the Spiritual and Temporal Leader of the Tibetans was forced to seek asylum in India . More than 80,000 Tibetans followed him in exile.

Gaden Jangtse Thoesam Norling Monastery has been re-established near Mundgod in Karnataka State , India , under the divine supervision of His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

 

Today this monastery continues to be the leading center for learning and practicing the Buddha Dharma. Here the monks study and practice the dharma all their lives. There are more than 1800 monks at present in the monastery
