Do-ngag Thoesam Rabgayling Thorim (higher) Shedra (College), Gangteng Gewog, Wangdiphodrang

Realizing the importance of profound practice of Buddha dharma for the wellbeing of all sentient beings through Shedra, Drubdey and true practice, His Eminence Kinzang Rigdzin Pema Namgyal, the 9th Gangteng Truelku Rimpoche committed to constructing and instituting new Shedra and Dubdeys. Coincidentally, as auspicious as it would be, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck Commanded that a Buddhist college and a meditation centre be established so that the center not only helps in upholding the true Dharma practice for all times to come but would also ensure incessant lineage holders. Accordingly, the current Gangteng Dongak Thoesam Rabgayling Buddhist College was constructed in 1985 as the main Buddhist learning center. Currently, there are 65 students and 5 teachers studying in Zhirim (1-3) in Gangteng Sang-ngag Choeling Goenpa and 280 students with 9 teachers in Thorim (1-9) in Dongak Thoesam Rabgayling Buddhist College.
