About Us

Located north-east of the Boudha stupa, Bajrayogini Meditation Centre (BMC) is now home to about 90 young nuns. It is about a fifteen minute walk to the Boudha stupa.

Current premises and it’s proximity to the Boudha Stupa

The premises of the Bajrayogini Meditation Centre was originally the residence of His Eminence Tashi Chophel Rinpoche. Before he went into long term retreat in Tibet in 2009, Rinpoche offered the premises to His Holiness Sakya Trichen who subsequently established it as a nunnery in 2011. As the original property was not designed as an institute, a pressing need for expansion arose. The nunnery fortunately managed to acquire several neighbouring plots before the earthquake in 2015. The earthquake was a major jolt as the existing buildings were not quake resilient. After much deliberation by the committee, plans for the new construction of the nunnery were drawn in 2016.

With the blessings of His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin, BMC is now ready to raise funds for the proposed project. Your contribution is deeply appreciated.
