Rinchen Chöling Sakya Nunnery and Sakya Nun's College

Sakya Kalden Ling supports Sakya Nunnery the only one outside Tibet, in Dehradun, India. There are about 200 nuns at the age between 9 and 40 years living in the new wing of the nunnery

Some nuns are from Nepal, Bhutan and other Himalayan regions, however, most of the nuns are from Tibet; they had to leave their families and friends behind, and the Sakya Nunnery has become their new home.

Sakya Academy is a modern monastic school, offering young monks based on Buddhist principles an all-encompassing education, wherein they achieve traditional and modern knowledge and skills as well as wisdom.

A project for the near future: As soon as there will be enough donations to build a boarding school for the nuns, one can start building.
