Sera Drati Khangtsen – Bylakuppe India
After the complete invasion of Tibet by China in 1959, the members of all Tibetan Buddhist monasteries were rehabilitated at a special camp at “Buxa” in the state of West Bengal for the preservation of Buddhist teachings and practices which was under threat of extinction during that time.
Drati Khangtsen, which was once a large and famous Khangtsen faced great threat of its survival at that time without the great leadership and help of only three senior monks who were able to escape into India along with others. They are Geshe Lobsang Sherab, Geshe Jampa Choephel and Late Venerable Nyerpa Lak. After that Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche also admitted to Sera Je Monastery and Sera Je Drati Khangtsen as young reincarnated Lawudo Tulku.
