Namdruk Sewa Jangchub Ling

Namdruk monastery, also known as ‘Druk Gompa’, was the Dragon Lineage’s second monastic seminary, founded by the first Gyalwang Drukpa Tsangpa Gyare in 1206. The lineage’s first established monastery was Ralung (Shedrub Chokhor Ling), also founded by Tsangpa Gyare in 1193, following the inspiration he received from his yidam, Chakrasamvara and his guru, Lingchen Repa. Tsangpa Gyare later established Namdruk as the main seat of the lineage.
