Tsem Ladrang, Naranthan,Nepal

The Ladrang team after many weeks of exhaustive search found a beautiful house in the hills of Naranthan in Kathmandu Nepal. It is TSEM LADRANG-NEPAL. They worked hard along with people from other depts who stayed for weeks there to oversee the contractors as they carefully and beautifully renovated the house. It has a nice yard, parking area, guest quarters, nice rooms, butterlamp house, and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Kathmandu Valley.
The Ladrang team and students did such an incredible job with the renovations and grounds. I love it so much. When I was there, I was ‘stuck’ there in a pleasant way. I did not want to leave at all. Every morning when I woke up, I was dying to open the windows to see the mountains, and let in the fresh cooling mountain air. Fantastic. I would walk up and down the mountains every evening after dinner for exercise. It took around one hour or so to complete the walk. At the bottom of the hill is a wonderful village market with restaurants, flower sellers, temples, fruit/vegetable shops, pharmacies, etc. The sellers very friendly. It was very pleasant to walk down and up the hill.
Here’s a short video I found on my phone yesterday and decided to post up now after I took the shots last year. It also has footage of me up the hill from the Ladrang looking down onto the Ladrang with a nice vispassana meditation centre nearby. Narathan Ladrang is fantastic.
Enjoy the videos and photos.
This is the beautiful Ladrang. The cover you see on top is for the veranda so not so hot to sit outside. Very nice, very windy and great views.
Surrounding houses from our ladrang.
I’m sitting on the roof of the ladrang enjoying the views. Very nice.
You can see the foreground is our yard and beyond the gate are smaller mountains at sunset in the evenings…..brilliant sunsets.
Looking down onto Kathmandu Valley.
We are on the mountain behind the Ladrang. We climb to the top and surrounding areas. I would sometimes like to go to higher ground and do my prayers/sadhana.
If you look straight ahead, you see a pointy yellow structure. That is a golden stupa that crowns a Vispassana meditation centre behind Tsem Ladrang here in Narathan.
Here’s the stupa again.
On our property we have built a butterlamp house. Everyday over 700 butterlamps are offered to sacred Vajra Yogini. I have finished offering 100,000 already. Other people have contacted our Ladrang team to want to sponsor doing 100,00o also. Some can’t make it there yet they still want to do it and we arrange. Very nice practice. I love offering butterlamps. This butterlamp house is dedicated to Vajra Yogini. We have one image of Her in here and nothing else.
Myself making offerings to Sacred Vajra Yogini. You can see at the top of the picture is an image of Her.
May everyone be blessed.
I love Tsem Ladrang in Narathan very much.
