Songsten Library

librarymain3We will be visiting and staying at Songsten Library outside of Dehradun. This library is associated with the nearby Jangchubling Monastery (Drikung Kagyu Institute), a Tibetan Buddhist monastery housing over 200 monks from Tibet, Mongolia, Nepal, and Ladakh. The building of Songsten Library was completed in 2001 and blessed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2003. 16605881

While there, we will receive instruction from the Khenpo (senior monk or abbot), visit a local school, and see the sights of Dehradun. It is a great place to enjoy the Sahastradhara River valley with lush Himalayan foothills behind.
