Sera Jey Rudok Lhundup Choding at Leh Ladhak is one of the branch monasteries of Sera Jey. This branch monastery under the affiliation of Sera Jey has been able to achieve much progress in the overall development. Spiritual services by the branch monastery to devotee community were restored to its full potential for the first time. A new prayer hall with a capacity to accommodate around 300 - 400 devotees was constructed, besides monk’s resident quarters, kitchen, office, …etc.

The Schooling cum Boarding project at Rudok Lhundup Choding Monastery – Leh Ladhak, is specifically proposed with a sole objective to providing an opportunity for children of remotely located herdsmen in Leh Ladhak and bordering areas of Tibet. Where the children of herdsmen in the remote planes of Leh Ladhak and bordering regions of Tibet in Ladhak are deprived of normal child upbringing, and basic school education is a distant dream.

The Project will provide hostel facility for approximate over 50 children with accommodation, food, clothing, books, medical and other basic requirements. They will be admitted into day schooling at Tibetan Village School, located adjacent to the monastery.

Rudok Lhundup Choding Monastery since its undertaking by Sera Jey Monastery, has been growing in member strength and monastic curriculum as well. Sera Jey Monastery delegates a large no of monks to the branch monastery, for administering teachings, prayer & ritual ceremonies all round the year.

However, the branch monastery has only a limited resident quarters for monks, and majority of the monks had to reside in make shift tents throughout the year.

The need for a minimum no of monk’s resident quarters has been required for long.

Hence, a "10 room Resident Quarter" for monks has been formerly proposed, to ease the hardship of accommodation shortages.

Project Cost:

The total estimate for the material and construction work costs for 10 room Block -

INR 3,000,000.00 (Three Million)
US$ 48,388.00 (forty-eight thousand, three hundred & thirty-eigh

Sera Jey Jamyang Choekhor Ling is one of the branch monastery of Sera Jey, located at Tawang in the north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. Since the monastery came into the folds of Sera Jey, it has developed considerably in all spheres - from facility (physical infrastructure) to educational curriculum / spiritual service and in the no of student / member population strength.

The most significant aspect of development is that the branch monastery is able to provide benefit to over 100 (one hundred) no of children from very poor and needy families with full fledge school education from class I to VIII and boarding, lodging and other basic needs as clothing, medical, … etc. The children have the benefit of learning Buddhist text manuals besides their school education.

The children become part of the branch monastery's member community and have the opportunity to develop to a full ordained monk and study / practice Buddhist Philosophy in their life ahead.

The administration of this program is an enormous challenge for the branch monastery and primarily to this head monastery.
