WELCOME to the official website of Ugyen Choling Institute, an initiative of 9th Ganteng Tulku Rinpoche, a principle lineage holder of the Peling traditions and president of Nyingma foundation in Bhutan and a head of Ganteng Monastery generally known as Ganteng Goenpa.

About Ugyen Choling

We are pleased to present His Holiness Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche’s project – Ugyen Choling Monastery in the state of Himachal Pradesh, northern India.
In 2005, Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche first visited the villages of Leo, Chuling and Hango located in Kinnaur – a beautiful mountainous region in northern India. This place has a special connection with the terma teachings of Pema Lingpa, and in particular with Gangteng Tulku, because in this very place the first Gangteng Tulku – Pema Trinley Tsel – gave teachings for a period of time.
Since then, the tradition of Pema Lingpa has been carefully preserved and passed from generation to generation by lay yogi practitioners – nagpas.
For the sake of preserving and strengthening the Pema Lingpa tradition, Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche expressed the wish to erect a monastery in the village of Leo, to become a centre for the study and practice of these precious teachings.

Kinnour

The Kinnaur area is a special mountainous region in the state of Himachal Pradesh, northern India. Kinnaur is adjacent to Tibet and is closely associated with it by culture and religion. The majority of people are Buddhist.
