Return To Gandhi Road


The powerful story of Kangyur Rinpoche, a renowned Tibetan Master who, heeding the imminent danger of the 1950s' Cultural Revolution, and under the instructions of the Dalai Lama, braved the dangerous journey over the Himalayan mountains to India. All to rescue two tonnes of Buddhist texts that otherwise faced potential extinction. The journey took over three years, (undertaken on foot), accompanied by his young family, and involved immense physical hardship. Once in Darjeeling, he built Orgyen Kunsang Chokhorling, a monastery at 54 Gandhi Road.
