The Shedra (Monastic College) will also be home to the Kilung Children’s School, both essential to providing traditional Tibetan education to the community and to furthering Buddhist spiritual training.
After the fire, the sixty students initially resumed their studies in tents and temporary structures, but this proved too difficult and there is currently no school or shedra in session. The children and monks are scattered in different places, some at home, some in public school, and some at other Shedras such as Dzogchen, Shechen, Jangma, Palpung and Machen.
Demolition of the destroyed Shedra was completed, and groundbreaking for the new Shedra and Community Center was on June 17th, 2018. Follow progress of the construction HERE.
The shedra will be a three-story, modern and environmentally sensitive building.
