His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche comes from the illustrious Gaden Shartse Monastery, from which esteemed masters such as His Holiness the 101st Gaden Tripa, His Holiness Zong Rinpoche, His Eminence Lati Rinpoche and many others hail.
His Eminence has previously built a ladrang in Gaden Shartse and it was offered to his Guru, H.E. Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche when His Eminence settled in Malaysia. Since then, His Eminence has not had a ladrang or permanent base in the monastery.
In 2006, His Eminence acquired more land in Gaden Shartse monastery. Plans are now in place to rebuild Tsem Ladrang on this piece of prime land, located next to H.H. Gaden Trisur Rinpoche’s ladrang.
Tsem Ladrang in Gaden would serve various purposes: to be a place where His Eminence can stay when visiting Gaden, for retreats and as a guest house for visitors or students.
As students of His Eminence, we have gained and continue to gain tremendous benefit from His teachings. We make prayers for Him to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and to live long. In order to put our prayers into action, it would be our great honour and opportunity to build a new ladrang at His home monastery of Gaden. So far, the main gate, walls and a small room for the guard have already been built.
