SECULAR EDUCATION – School Nuns
Since 1999, nearly all the young nuns of Tara Abbey have been attending ThranguĂ˘€Â¨Rinpoche’s school (Shree Mangal Dvip Boarding School), located in Boudha, Kathmandu. Currently 42 nuns are receiving a secular education at SMD in addition to their studies in the Abbey, traveling 2 hours daily in their school bus to study.
Many need special classes to catch up as education is lacking in their remote villages. Upon leaving school, they may enter into shedra studies at the Abbey.
