Lopen Choying Randol, Adminstrator and Teacher
“My name is Choying Rangdol Rokaya.I am from the remote Dolpa district of Nepal.I came to Shechen Monastery when I was 12 and studied at the Shechen School. After that, I attended Dratsang (monastic training in sacred arts) to study Buddhist rituals and texts, and then completed the nine-year course at the Shechen Philosophical College (Shedra) for higher studies in Buddhist philosophy. I graduated with a Lopen degree.
Two years ago Rinpoche asked me to to teach the young monks. I am a chief administrator of the school and also teach dharma and Tibetan language and grammar. I am happy to work with our new system which integrates Buddhadharma and modern education.This is very important for the future of the monastery, and fulfils a great need of the monks, a need that I had as a child but at that time is was not available. Our students are very honest, kind and happy, and I am so proud to be a part of this school.”
