Facilities will be established for craft work in general, and thangka painting in particular.
Our Spiritual Directors, Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen, are both master thangka painters – but at present the number of their trainee painting students is limited not by the time of the teachers but by the size of the homes of the sangha members who host such events.
A larger, permanent, dedicated facility will enable the teaching of this rare art-form to be opened up both to a broader Buddhist population and the general public.
The Drala Jong project seeks to create a home for the Aro gTér Lineage. Please see the Appeal page for more information about the Drala Jong project and how to help.
