The Treasury of Lives

Kalsang Nyima

Shadrang Puntsok Choling was founded in Rebkong in Amdo by Choje Dondrub Rinchen in 1346. Choje Dondrub Rinchen became prominent as the teacher of the young boy who would become Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa, founder of the Geluk tradition. Local accounts maintain that an adjacent hill to Shadrang monastery assumed the new name of Dornyin, an eponymous acronym of Dondrub Rinchengyi Nyinchok Ritro, after Dondrub Rinchen had meditated there.
