The Treasury of Lives

Kharchu Dudjom Ling, a Nyingma monastery in Lhodrak, sits on a site associated with Padmasambhava and numerous other Nyingma saints. It was first developed as a sacred site in the thirteenth century by Melong Dorje and then later founded as a monastery in the sixteenth century by the Fourth Drukchen, Pema Karpo. Under the Fifth Dalai Lama it was expanded and became the seat of the Namkhai Nyingpo incarnations.
