The formation of Gompa - Tibetan Monastery Services was inspired by the aspiration of the senior lamas at the major monasteries in India and Nepal. Our aim is to follow their wishes and to help build a closer connection between the major monasteries and nunneries and their followers worldwide and with all those who have an interest in classical Tibetan knowledge, practice, culture and arts around the world.
As of March 2016, online services are available from our partner monasteries and nunneries in Dehradun, Bylakuppe, Hunsur, Mundgod and Himachal Pradesh, with further monasteries and nunneries in Kathmandu, Sarnath and Bodhgaya scheduled to come online during the coming months.
