His Eminence Ayang Rinpoche and consecrated in May 2013, was seriously
damaged during the 2015 Nepal earthquakes. Due
to Rinpoche's foresight in building to the highest engineering
standards, the retreat cottages were undamaged, as was the major temple
structure. However, the superb frescoes and other artwork did suffer
major damage, and there was considerable cracking in the structure.

repair the temple. We appeal to the generosity of all students and
supporters of Rinpoche to assist in this great work. Even if you made an

retreat center was created due to the great vision of H.E. Chöje Ayang

but for generations to come.
