Yeshe Nyingpo Temple's Backyard Garden
The temple's backyard garden is the first project that Dungsey Namgay Rinpoche embarked on after completing all of the projects requested from his late father, H.H Shenphen Dawa Rinpoche, and sister, Khandro Semo Lhanzey la. The renovation started early morning at 8:00 AM on August 15th, 2020, when Lopon Lulu and his group of Bhutanese friends came to remove the everything from the back garden so the Karmarong could come and begin their work.
A clean up that Rinpoche thought would take a whole day, took the Bhutanese group barely an hour to complete:
