A Short History of the Karma Leksheyling Institute
The aim of the curriculum and discipline at our Shedra is to train Buddhist monks who are later qualified to teach the Buddha Dharma and can eventually guide their own students and disciples.
In 2002 the Institute moved to its present premises where a Secondary School for classes 1 to 8 was added in 2007. It is a regular school approved by the Nepalese government combined with a full monastic training. By the end of class 8 the young monks decide whether they want to continue their education outside or inside the monastery. If they stay they join the lower Institute for 4 years followed by 12 years of the higher Institute. At the present there are around 250 monks and nuns in year 2017
