The Treasury of Lives

Ngor Ewaṃ Choden near Shigatse in Tsang was founded in 1429 by Ngorchen Kunga Zangpo. Ngor is part of the Sakya tradition, following the same doctrinal and ritual tradition, but it maintains administrative independence from Sakya Monastery. The monastery is divided into four monastic estates from which its leadership is drawn: Luding, Khangsar, Tartse, and Pende.
