Since the inauguration of our projects last February 2022 until now, much progress has been made on the land in Ruskin, Pasighat. Several buildings have been constructed, and ongoing events and dharma activities are happening regularly.

With your support, the following areas were developed:

The Ati Jangchub Choeling Temple, a small but well-facilitated temple, was built towards the end of last February 2022 by the retreatants from Deden Tashi Choeling Temple, Pemakod. Ever since its completion, bimonthly Tsok practices and all other Dharma practices have been held here. This smaller temple will continue to function until the larger temple we have envisioned, with a greater capacity for participants, is completed. 

Additionally, last summer, a public kitchen featuring a large dining room was built in the simple style of the local Assamese architecture. It has been the gathering center for all of the events that take place on the land. 

A traditional, Adi bamboo house was also completed last summer. This house has been loved by visitors from near and far, who are able to enjoy its unique structure for the day or who spend the night here, rather than relying on the availability of local hotels.

A basic storage facility with two rooms has been built for the land. One is used for day to day needs and the other for items required less frequently.  

As done in India and particularly in this region, a durable wall around the land has almost been completed. This wall will serve as a boundary, and is important for the safety of the school in particular. 

Progress on the construction of Odiyana Clinic

Completion, Ongoing and activities. 

Thus far, we have completed a good sized residence for the lamas and others in charge of the project, public restrooms, storage house, a sizable kitchen for regular public events and daily workers and a temporary temple for the ongoing monthly Dharma events that have been taking place since last February.  

With the support of Tibetan Aid Foundation our ongoing works include the construction of four rooms for the Odiyana Clinic, a long concrete fence all around the land.

Construction of the permanent Odiyana Temple is planned to begin soon.

Our celebration on February 16th 2022 was the first official gathering on the land.  The event was graced by many government dignitaries as well as spiritual heads.  Around six hundred people were gathered from all walks of life.  To the joy of all participants, Tulku Orgyen Rinpoche announced his aspiration for the benefit of many with the means of three projects for generations to come.  Ever since, gatherings have been held twice every month and occasional holy days have also been celebrated.
