If peace is what you want, this is where you ought to be! Nestled in the foothills near Boudhanath Stupa, lies a quiet and secluded Pullahari Monastery. The place is ideal for those wishing for a more profound insight into the Buddhist way of life. Intensive chanting of mantras and dedicatedly being performed rituals bring instant calmness to the mind.
About the establishment
This monastery is the main seat of His Eminence the fourth Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, Lodro Chokyi Nyima. He was offered this land by the Venerable Dabzang Rinpoche in 1986, along with a request for establishing a three-year retreat center for monks of the Karma Kagyu lineage. The request was accepted and the construction of this serene place began in the following year. The construction was completed in February 1992. On April 26 of the same year, His Eminence blessed the monastery and disbanded his mind in parinirvana.
More than just religious concerns
Apart from religious practices, monks at the Pullahari Monastery also engage in environmental activities. They occasionally undertake plantation activities for the purpose of preventing soil erosion and also for growing vegetables, fruits and herbs for own use. No chemical products are utilized in the process. The monastery also promotes the use of solar energy and water harvesting techniques.
