News from VVI and Namo Buddha
127 Shedra monks have recently completed their 6th month exams. It is a rigorous process, which involves several days of written exams and debates.
100 shedra monks are at Vajra Vidya Institute and 27 shedra monks are at Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery. Due to the lockdown in Nepal and India, 5 monks were unable to return for examination and will have to wait until travel is safely permitted again. Photos courtesy of Khenpo Gendun.
