This is one of the two temples in the same area. One is for women the other is for men. Keep that in mind. If you are male and go to the female temple everyone will disappear. If you are female and... more »
I have previously posted on Thrangu Monastery. Interesting thing to do because it's not really a 'tourist destination'. Thrangu Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery, Karma Kagyu lineage, where serious practitioners can go to learn about the Sacred Dharma and work towards their own liberation. What is liberation? It is no less than FREEDOM from the suffering that is part of our cyclic existence. The building, the Sacred Art are both beautiful. But what's really amazing is the personal contact with Lamas who have received transmissions of Sacred Dharma. Paths that can lead you back to your true nature. If you think this might be for you, go visit.
To give Thrangu Monastery any less than 5 stars is to be ignorant of what is offered at this breathtakingly beautiful place. Tibetan Buddhism, practiced at this monastery, offers monastics and lay people alike the Dharma teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha - the one who attained enlightenment in a single lifetime. The Buddha then left Dharma teachings - 84,000 of them - to assist other human beings in attaining enlightenment. Going for a visit is worth your while for simply seeing the Sacred Architecture and Art here can plant the seeds for your liberation. Liberation is FREEDOM FROM SUFFERING, freedom from attachment, freedom from aversion. Check out the Dharma Teaching or Prayer schedule online at the website or pick up a calendar of events while you're there. In our strife-ridden world, there are few places that offer perfect solace. My prayer for you is that you visit this precious gem and begin to know the Truth. The truth is that each one of us has the potential to reach full enlightenment.
