Located on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal, Tergar Lungrik Osel Targyé Ling Monastery is home to more than 100 monks from across the Himalayas. Tergar Osel Ling was established by the late meditation master Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, who later entrusted the monastery to two of his sons, Tsoknyi Rinpoche and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Tsoknyi Rinpoche has overseen the activities of the monastery in recent years. In 2010, Mingyur Rinpoche formally took responsibility for the monastery and opened a monastic college (shedra).
Tergar Osel Ling’s thriving monastic community trains in the philosophical and meditative practices of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The unique approach of Osel Ling’s monastic college brings together philosophical inquiry and meditative experience. Balancing theory and practice, the monks who attend the college study the classic philosophical treatises of the Buddhist tradition, while grounding their studies in the practice of meditation.
