The monastics at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling have devoted themselves to intensive study and practice, including reaching out to the community beyond the gompa walls to be of service to others. Whether they complete the monastic college or become ritual masters according to their interests and capacities, they are all committed to becoming scholar-practitioners in the best possible ways that they can–by transforming their minds and serving others.

Community engagement

Our monks of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling never hesitate to be of benefit of the local community. After the devastating earthquakes in early 2015, although their own monastery was heavily damaged, the monks went on trips to far away villages to deliver to those of highest needs truck loads of food and shelter.
