The Palyul Choekhorling Monastery, home to about 170 monks, was established in 1980 by Venerable Rigo Tulku Rinpoche.
This monastery is also known as Nyingmapa Buddhist Monastery.
The Nyingmapa school was the first Buddhist school in Tibet. Today, the school is strong in eastern Tibet, United States, and in India.
Within the Nyingmapa, there are six principal lineages – Kathok, Palyul, Dzogchen, Shechen, Mindroling, and Dorje Drak.
This monastery offers free education, lodging, clothing, medical care, and food for all the monks studying here.
The monastery has a carpet center within it’s premises.
