  • The history of Sera Jey Monastery dates back to early 15th Century AD in Tibet. Founded by Venerable Jetsun Kunkhen Lodroe Rinchen Senge, during the early History of Buddhism in Tibet and at the time of the great Lama Tsong Khapa (1357 - 1419) the founder of the Gelug Order. Sera Jey has preserved the Nalanda tradition of scholarship (of ancient India) and study that dates back over 1000 years. As His Holiness the Dalai Lama has stated: ”Tibetan Buddhism is not an invention of the Tibetans. Rather, it is quite clear that it derives from the pure lineage of the tradition of the Nalanda Monastery.” You can see the influence of the Nalanda tradition still today at Sera with monks engaging in morning and evening Debate.
