Wogmin Thubten Shedrup Ling  PDF brochure 28Mb
First Wogmin Thubten Shedrup Ling in Tibet was founded by Drigung Tertön Nüden Dorje, an embodiment of Tibet's great yogi Milarepa. After coming back to India from Ladakh, in 1971 from the local Maharaja, Ontül Rinpoche bought a piece of land at Tso Pema (Rewalsar, Himachal Pradesh, India) and build a monastery from the donations which he received from the people of Ladakh. With the help of monastery monks Ontül Rinpoche managed to construct a monastery on this piece of land. Tso Pema means the “Lotus Lake”, and this is one of the sacred places where Guru Padmasambhava demonstrated his miraculous powers. The purpose of his exhibiting miracles on that place was to subdue the king and the people of that region, which was then known as Sahor. It took many years for Ontül Rinpoche to complete the monastery with the sacred objects, ritual instruments, and other necessary things.
