This is a Garchen Rinpoche, Drikung Kagyu Lineage Center, named Drikung Dharmatara Ling, Island of Achi. It is open to all interested in improving themselves and their way of life, and to start on the path to liberation.

The Drikung Kagyu Order was founded in 1179 by Kyobpa Jigten Sumgön. It is headed by the two Kyabgon Rinpoches, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang and His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang. While Chungtsang Rinpoche resides in Lhasa, Chetsang Rinpoche has established the Drikung Kagyu seat in exile in Dehra Dun, in the northeast of India. The Drikung Kagyu has a Library, a College, and a Nunnery school in Dhera Dun. News from Samtenling Nunnery
