Sershul Tekchen Dargyeling སེར་ཤུལ་ ཏེཀ་ ཆེན་ དར་ གྱེ་ གླིང་ is an important monastery of the Gelukpa School, located 20 km west of Deongma, on the right side of the road. This is currently the largest monastery in Sershul county, with 1200-1300 monks divided into six colleges, under the guidance of the youthful but charismatic Drukpa Rinpoche. The rain retreat festival held in August is a magnificent spectacle, attracting nomad communities. The hills and grasslands around the monastery are sparse and spacious. The complex was founded as a branch of Chunkor but soon outgrew the latter. The recently restored buildings at Sershul, which are all near the motor road, include the Tsokchen (assembly hall), the Jamkhang (Maitreya temple), the Gonkhang (protector temple), the Dewachen Lhakhang (Amitabha temple), the Mentsikhang (where Mipham Rinpoche`s tradition is maintained), the college, a Mani Wheel chapel (containing three wheels constructed by the father of the present Drukpa Rinpoche) and a small guesthouse. A new Tsongkhapa Lhakhang, resembling a giant cathedral, has been constructed below the main complex, and was due for completion and consecration on 12 December, 2008. <a href=“http://www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&amp;Action=product&amp;Product_Reference=TIBH04” rel=“nofollow”>www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&amp;Action=pr…</a>

Only one more day, and I get to go to my favorite place, with my absolute favorite #LittleMoon, to see two of my other favorite people. Being #GonpaBound always gets me in the best mindset! (at Chagdud Gonpa - Rigdzin Ling)

“Esteja certo de que a felicidade de sua vida não pode vir de fora.
Você só poderá encontrar a felicidade quando souber fazê-la nascer dentro de seu coração, quando aprender a ajudar a todos indistintamente, com suas ações, suas palavras e seus pensamentos.
Pense positivamente, desculpando a todos, e sentirá a maior felicidade de sua vida na alegria de viver bem.” (em Chagdud Gonpa Khadro Ling)

Luz em diversas camadas: na oferta das lamparinas, na ausência dentro pra causar o reflexo fora, na impressão dos olhos, e no desenho da foto. (em Templo Chagdug Gonpa Khadro Ling)
