Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche, one of the most renowned Tibetan Buddhist masters of our times, envisioned the establishment of a place for women to practice and study the Dharma  in the Benchen tradition already in the 1990’s.

Due to favourable circumstances Rinpoche finally managed to buy land with a shell building suiting this purpose in 2011, shortly before his Parinirvana.

The name for the nunnery Benchen Arya Tara Ling has been kindly bestowed by Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche in Pharping in June 2012.

Now it’s up to all of us to bring Rinpoche’s vision to fruition.
