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.
