khensur ngawang jorden 01On 19th of June 2018, the Sera Mey monks and all the departments of the Sera Mey Monastery, gathered together to express their deepest thanks and sincere appreciation to His Highness Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Ngawang Jorden for his dedicated hard work for the monastery over more than seven years. During this time Rinpoche had worked extremely hard and very successfully built the current Sera Mey debating building,

and above it many rooms for classes to study modern science, and other offices. In front of the building is a vast debating yard, which is invaluable to the monks for learning their debating skills. This skill is the main methodology used by the monks in the study of the important Buddhist texts written by Indian and Tibetan masters. Rinpoche had travelled all over the world to raise the funds for the building and it was successfully completed in 2017. The opening ceremony for this building took place on 19th June, led by His Holiness with his blessing, teachings and advice for the Sera Mey monks.

The entire community of Sera Mey monks, both here at the monastery and monks and ex-monks who live outside the monastery, sincerely offer their thanks to Khensur Rinpoche Ngawang Jorden and his staff. We also offer our prayers for Rinpoche’s long life and present our heartfelt wish that all his spiritual activities be successful. We really hope and request that Rinpoche will continue to support the monastery, with his advice and the wealth of his experience.
