Rebuild the Kilung Shedra

shedra fire-1 shedra fire3On April 7, a devastating fire swept through the Kilung Shedra, destroying it completely. Gratefully, no one was harmed, but everything was lost.

The Shedra (Monastic College) was home to the Kilung Children’s School, both essential to providing traditional Tibetan education to the community and to furthering Buddhist spiritual training.

The sixty students initially resumed their studies in tents and temporary structures, and now have warm housing. Demolition of the destroyed Shedra has been completed, and the site is prepared for the rebuilding that will start in the spring.
