Lama Lungrik Gyatso came to the Nalanda Institute as resident Buddhist monk in 2008. He has been a monk for more than 35 years. At his home Sakya Monastery in Mundgod, Karnataka State, India, Lama Lungrik trained in Tibetan Buddhist monastic ritual, ceremony and meditation, and received full monk's ordination. He completed his formal education in Buddhist philosophical studies and meditation at the Sakya College, an institute of higher Buddhist studies in Utteranchal State, India. As our resident monk, Lama Lungrik leads and instructs our regular meditation and chanting practices, conducts ritual ceremonies, and provides individual spiritual guidance, available to both Nalanda members and the community at large. He is also an important support for the local Tibetan community. He is available to perform Buddhist ceremonies for important life events and celebrations (inquiries to info@Nalandaolywa.org).
