Sera Jey Ngari Khangtsen

Progressive Buddhist Education Society in Exile

This site represents Sera Jey Ngari Khangtsen which is one of the sixteen Houses of Sera Jey Monastic University, located in the oldest Tibetan refugee camp in India, Bylakuppe, State of Karnataka, South India.

Khangtsen is the Tibetan word for HOSTEL. Each Khangtsen is linked to a province in Tibet and has to accommodate the monks that hail from this area.  The Khangtsen functions independently from the main monastery with each hostel or house having the responsibility to provide the living necessities for their own monks, which includes housing, medical care, and educational material. 

Ngari Khangtsen was originally founded in western Tibet. In 1970 it was reestablished at Sera Jey Monastery in South India. Currently Ngari Khangtsen has over 140 monks, who are mostly ethnic Tibetans from the Himalayan regions, including India, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan.

Donations

We need your help!

Traditionally monks have been dependent on and supported by the families and the community in which they live. In exile, this has proven to be very difficult.
A lot of the families are too poor to help, or on the "wrong" side of the Indian/Tibetan border.

Donations from people like you made our housing possible! We are still building - if you would like to help out - feel free to click on the DONATE-button below:
