Our Vision

Tsongkhapa
Tsongkhapa

Gaden Khachoe Shing is envisioned as a sacred place for the study and preservation of the Buddha's teachings as transmitted by the Gaden Ear-Whispered lineage. In these troubled times, the need has never been greater to preserve the great precious teachings and practice of this lineage that have been passed from teacher to teacher, unchanged since the Buddha’s enlightenment. Students quickly discover that these ancient teachings, preserved for hundreds of years in isolated Tibet, are timeless. They offer a step-by-step method for achieving release from suffering, attaining true happiness, and acquiring the means to help others. At the same time, conditions in the modern world can lead to great confusion that has the potential to dilute and distort the purity of the teachings in ways that hinder their effectiveness.

To ensure the preservation of this precious lineage, the new monastery will offer multiple levels of instruction in Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) and practice. The training will range from introductory classes through rigorous residential programs in the manner of traditional monastic universities of Tibet, India, and Mongolia. At the highest levels, monks, nuns and lay students will meditate and study, contemplate, realize and preserve the teachings of the great Buddhist master Je Tsongkhapa and lineage protector Dorje Shugden. The lineage protector Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri and the principal guiding presence in this monastery. The hope is that many who study here will become accomplished meditators, scholars and realized practitioners, masters and adepts who will serve others and preserve this precious wisdom for the sake of all beings.
