Little Bodhi Seed Monks

The number of our little monks remains the same at 100. They continue to receive ritual and chanting instruction from senior monks, attend Tibetan alphabet and grammar classes as well as English lessons everyday for 1 hour. Local nurse Tashi is employed to care for the monks 6 days a week.


An older Western student of Khenchen Rinpoche's, who attended the Yamataka teaching, fully sponsored a young monk crippled with Poliomyelitis (Polio) for his extended long-term healthcare. Learn More

Little Bodhi Seed Hygiene Workshop, February 2017

In February 2017, a western registered nurse facilitated a hygiene workshop for the Ngor Monastery’s Little Bodhi Seed monks. The nurse has delivered numerous workshops to the monks in the past and, according to their teacher, Karma, there have been big improvements in the monks’ general well-being and they have benefited from the workshops.

The workshop was held in the Monastery grounds and Karma translated the nurse’s teachings from English into Tibetan. To ensure the monks listened intently and implemented the nurse’s instructions, the workshop was concluded with a Question and Answer session.

After the hygiene session, Karma explained to the young monks that learning Tibetan and English and studying Dharma would enable them to, one day in the future, graduate and be able to teach all the students in the world Dharma to benefit all sentient beings.
