Yeshe Nyingpo Temple Renovation

Since the Mahaparanirvana of H.H Dungsey Shenphen Dawa Rinpoche in 2018, Yeshe Nyinpo Temple has begun its planned renovations. Dungsey Namgay Dawa Rinpoche took on the responsibilities to complete the projects set out as envisioned by his father and late sister, Khandro Semo Lhanzey la. With the help of the sangha members and people from different communities, who rendered their time to volunteer to help us, we were able to completely restore the temple and gave it a new look as well as major renovations that were needed. The projects for the temple are ongoing and if you'd like to contribute, please feel free to sign up in the volunteer form or support us financially for our the special projects here.

Here are a few pictures of the work that the Sangha did during 2018:

After two days of hard work, the sangha was able to completely restore the temple to its original state. The stains and grease from the butter lamps were removed from the wall, new chandeliers and fixtures were installed and Dharma objects were rearranged to give the temple a more open space feeling:

In September, sangha volunteers returned to arrange the temple's collection of pechas: 

In December, wood panelings were set up on the Lama side of the temple, and the hallway was repainted white:
