Fundraising appeal to repair Amitabha Retreat Center in Nepal Opak Kyilkhor Chöling

Opak Kyilkhor Choling, Nepal

The magnificent Buddha Amitabha temple and retreat center built in Nepal by 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. [View more photographs of the damage here.]

With the recent re-opening of the India-Nepal highway, work can now begin to 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 offering to support this work last year, please consider how this retreat center was created due to the great vision of H.E. Chöje Ayang Rinpoche and will benefit countless beings, not only in the present day, but for generations to come.
