The Treasury of Lives

Jakhyung is an major Geluk monastery in Bayan Khar in Amdo. It was established in 1349 by Choje Dondrub Rinchen, the first teacher of Tsongkhapa, on the site of an institution established by the Second Karmapa, Karma Pakshi in the twelfth century. In 1363, it was here to Jakhyung that Choje brought the seven-year-old Tsongkhapa and gave him his novice vows. Along with Serkhok, Chubzang and Gonlung, Jakhyung was considered one of the 'four great monasteries of the north,' meaning the oldest and most important Geluk institutions of Amdo.
