Information about our quests: Anilas from shedra Pema Thekchok Cheling, started in 2001 (in number of 100, from 12 to 70 y.o., many of them hold a lopyn title). After completing studies (9 years – long academic program) some of them start a live long retreat. The main practise is Chod. Their education, according to Gangteng Tulku’s words „ is often better and more deep, and their realisation more vast and larger than those achieved by monks – men”. Shedra for women in the middle of Tang Valley is fulfillment of XVth century prophesy by Pema Lingpa, who predicted the formation of women’s institution. It has been established by IXth Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche.
