Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling

Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery near Boudhanath, on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal. It has ties to both the Kagyu and Nyingma schools, hence the combined Ka-Nying in the name. Shedrub Ling means “sanctuary for learning and practice.”

Based on the wishes of the 16th Karmapa, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and his family began construction of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery in 1974. Upon its completion in the spring of 1976, King Birendra of Nepal performed the official inauguration. At that time, the Karmapa appointed Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche as abbot and his brother, Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, as master of rituals. Gyalwang Karmapa then led the consecration ceremonies. Today, Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche - the oldest son of Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche - serves as the master of rituals together with his father.
