Rigdzin Rabpel Ling Ngakpa Temple

is an important spiritual and historic location for the Buddhist tradition of Eastern Tibet

The great master Rigdzin Palden Tashi (1688-1743) created and revitalized the Ngakpa tradition of Rebkong

First built about 800 years ago, this is the first important Ngakpa temple in the area.  The great master Rigdzin Palden Tashi (1688-1743) created and revitalized the Ngakpa tradition of Rebkong, and used this temple as his base.  It has remained an important cultural and spiritual center, and the surrounding village region is populated by Ngakpa families that maintain a unique cultural tradition that emphasizes balancing agricultural life with intensive spiritual practices for both men and women.

For the last 10 years,

the Ngakmang network of organizations around the world has been active in restoring the main temple, building a kitchen and eight retreat cabins. There are also ongoing projects run by Ngakmang organizations, sponsoring school programs and offering educational opportunities for local youth.


the Ngakmang Foundation is actively working to support the building of a library and classroom at the village, and a clinic for the practice of traditional medicine.  We will also be facilitating the sponsorship of important ceremonies in the village and other educational projects.
