Tashi Lhunpo Monks

Tashi Lhunpo Monastery UK Trust supports the Tibetan monastery in exile in India. The monks visit England to raise awareness of Tibetan culture.

Coming on Friday, Saturday and Sunday

Tashi Lhunpo Monastery UK Trust supports the Tibetan monastery in exile in India. After the Tibetan national uprising that took place in 1959, a handful of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery monks along with many thousands of Tibetans escaped into India. The Monastery was then subsequently re-established in Bylakuppe in Karnataka State, India. With the induction of new recruits over the years, the Monastery today has about 400 monks. Every year, a group of the monks visit England to help raise funds for the monastery and raise awareness of Tibetan culture.
