Sakya Nunnery


Since 1993, groups of Sakya nuns from Tibet started to arrive in India as refugees. They shared the same aspirations to remain as nuns to devote their entire lives to the practice of the Dharma. Through the generosity of the Buddhist community and sponsors, nunneries were built to accommodate these nuns. The main Sakya nunnery, Sakya Rinchen Choling in Dehradun, oversees two other nunneries: Sakya Thrinley Choling nunnery for young nuns in Leh-Ladakh in India, and Vajrayogini Meditation Centre for nuns in Kathmandu, Nepal. Together, they have approximately 300 nuns under their care. The nuns have dormitories, a temple, and classrooms, but they do not have any proper facilities to do retreats—an integral part of a nun’s spiritual path. It is the wish of His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin that a retreat centre be built for the nuns—a place that would allow them to complement the monastic training they have received, to deepen their understanding of the Dharma, and ultimately to gain realisation.

 

The Importance of Doing Retreat


When you do retreat, you are away from the busyness and distractions of the world. You are in a secluded place, where there is no noise, and no worldly activities, so that your mind is more focused, more calm. Then whatever practices you do, whatever recitation, meditation, and visualizations, are much more effective. And after you have built a base by doing effective retreat, then you can do this anywhere, as a daily practice. Therefore to do retreat is very important.
His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin

 

 

Retreat Facilities for Nuns


The Sakya nunnery hopes to build a retreat centre in the vicinity of Dehradun to support the many nuns who aspire to perform retreat. We are actively scouting for a suitable piece of land with the right environment for building a retreat centre. Please contact us to learn more about this project. We hope you will assist us in this meritorious project by contributing generously. More Information here.

For donations to the Retreat Facilities for Nuns, contribution can be made online with PayPall.

Sakya Nunnery Rinchen Choling and Sakya Nun’s Institute for higher Studies

Sakya Kalden Ling Frankfurt supports Sakya Nunnery (the only Sakya nunnery outside Tibet). It is located in Dehradun, India. Since the completion of the new wing in 2009 it has become home to 200 nuns, aged 9 to 40. Some nuns are from Nepal, Bhutan and other Himalayan regions, however, most of the nuns are from Tibet; they had to leave their family and friends behind, and the Sakya Nunnery has become their new home.
