His Holiness the Dalai Lama bestowed upon us the name THOSAMLING, which means “place of listening and reflection.”
We are an international community of Buddhist nuns and lay women, living and studying within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Whether you are looking for unique study and practice opportunities or a place for retreat, Thosamling is an inspirational and welcome home.
Situated at the foothills of the spectacular Dhauladar Range in Sidhpur, India, we are close to significant teachers from all four Tibetan Buddhist lineages, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa.
Staying in this area provides you with opportunities to participate in a wide array of Buddhist events.
Although Thosamling is primarily a nunnery, its ability to thrive and prosper is dependent on a strong and vibrant international community of Dharma practitioners. We invite you to learn more about our programs and community and come visit us for a tour or stay.
