The present Ayang Rinpoche is the seventh incarnation of the founder of Ayang Monastery in Eastern Tibet (Kham), which was built more than 400 years ago as a branch of the main Drikung monastery. When Rinpoche returned to his birthplace area in the early 2000’s for the first time since leaving Tibet in 1959, he decided that the original monastery was too remote and that the nomad community and the monks would benefit from having it relocated. Rinpoche received permission from the Chinese government to relocate it on the shores of Nying-je Tso (“The Lake of Compassion”), about 3 hours west of Jyekundo (Chinese, Yushu) in Qinghai province. The new monastery has been under construction since 2003. Damaged in the great 2010 Yushu earthquake, it is now nearly complete. To see a slide show of monastery photos click here. Ayang Rinpoche will be visiting his monastery in Eastern Tibet for the consecration ceremony, August 8, 2014. To make an auspicious connection with the new monastery and the ceremonies surrounding the consecration, sponsor butterlamps, tsok, tea and bread for the monks, money offerings for the monks and lamas, or ritual offerings (statues, mandalas, bumpas, bowls, capalas, etc.).
