Tashi Kyil Monks

Insight Meditation Community of Charlotte is honored to host a special evening featuring the Tashi Kyil Monks on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. While we will be meeting at our regular meeting home, Park Road Baptist Church, 3900 Park Rd, Charlotte, this special event will be held in the church’s main sanctuary.

Doors will open at 6:30 PM when handmade items by the community of the Monks will be for sale. The event will begin at 7:00PM. This event is well attended and in the past there has been standing room only, so please arrive early. Admission is free and donations are deeply appreciated by the monks.

The Labrang Tashi Kyil monastery is home to over 120 monks. Located in a poor region (Dehra Dun, India) many local families cannot afford to feed or educate their children, who are welcome to live and learn at the monastery.

Following the destruction of the original Labrang Tashi Kyil Monastery in Tibet, exiled monks rebuilt their monastery in Dehra Dun, India in1967. To the present day the chanting styles, rituals, practices, and self-initiations are preserved just as they were in Tibet. Several of the monks tell of the harrowing journey traveling only at night to escape from Tibet into India.

The Labrang Tashi Kyil monks are a part of the Tibetan Buddhist Gelug Sect, the sect of His Holiness the Dali Lama. Join us to learn chants and meditation from the Tibetan tradition, to hear a Dharma talk and to learn about the lives of exiled Tibetan monks living in India.
