View the video on YouTube:

This beautiful historical video showcases what the life of monks was like during the early days in Gaden Shartse
Monastery, circa 1985. The video features Khensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche, as well as footage of monks studying
and senior monks making tormas in Zong Labrang.

It was from Gaden Shartse that Shar Gaden Monastery later arose on 23rd, February 2008, primarily from the
members of Dokhang Khamtsen. Shar Gaden continues to grow day by day under the leadership of the Abbot
Ven. Geshe Lobsang Phende, and with more than 750 monks living in-house, working, studying and upholding
the lineage of Dorje Shugden.
