Thrangu Monastery Canada

Religious Sites

When Thrangu Monastery opened its doors in Richmond, it was the first traditional Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Canada. The Monastery was founded by the Venerable Lama Pema Tsewang, who was sent to Canada in 2003 by Thrangu Tulku Karma Lodrö Ringluk Maseng to establish a Dharma centre promoting the Buddhist teachings. The Monastery teaches the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Thrangu Monastery welcomes visits from tourists and local residents, religious and non-religious alike.
