Construction has begun at the Kilung Shedra!
Welcome to the crew!
The innovative solar cap is being installed.
Due to pandemic-caused inflation of the cost of building supplies,
we still need to raise $130,000 to finish the construction.
Please donate HERE to help us open the shedra this year.
Tremendous progress this 2020 building season!

One of the most special features of the Kilung Shedra is the solar cap. This large expanse of special glass will cover most of the inner courtyard and will provide passive solar heat for the building. It will create sun-warmed sheltered spaces where students and monks can study during the day, while producing passive heat to the adjacent areas.
From architectural rendering to reality!
