“My prayer is to preserve and protect this female lineage of Gebchak Gonpa. My request to people throughout the world is to pray for the Gebchak lineage to be entirely preserved in the future.”

Gebchak Rigpa Har-Sey is an Australian based organization whose inspiration is to preserve the female spiritual lineage and wisdom of Gebchak Gonpa. This involves assisting the cultural, charitable and spiritual activities of Wangdrak Rinpoche and the nuns and lamas of Gebchak Gonpa.
In Australia this takes the form of sharing this precious female meditation tradition of Gebchak Gonpa with Australian audiences through Wangdrak Rinpoche’s teaching tours. As a Khenpo and Abbot of Gebchak Nunnery, Wangdrak Rinpoche is a wonderful representative of Buddhism in Tibet whose warmth and compassion is a reminder of the inner dharma that transcends all change. Please see the Australian Teachings and Retreats pages for information about Rinpoche's upcoming October/November 2017 visit.
Wangdrak Rinpoche's activities in Tibet are supported by fundraising for the nuns of Gebchak Gonpa, 22 orphans under his care in Yushu and retreat huts at his Dongtsang Ritro Hermitage in Nangchen, Qinghai province. Please see the Donate page for details on how you can contribute.
The name Gebchak Rigpa Har-Sey is inspired by the spontaneous enlightenment of Gebchak Gonpa's Ani Lama Sherab Zangmo (c. 1922-2008). Often referred to as “The Great Yogini of Gebchak Gonpa”, Sherab Zangmo was famed among the lamas in Eastern Tibet for her high realization. Her simple yet profound meditation view is characteristic of the Gebchak lineage and the teachings of its nuns and lamas.
Gebchak Rigpa Har-Sey was founded in 2013 and is an Australian charity run by volunteers. The certificate of incorporation is A0058850F and ABN 85560914849. In China, the Religious Department Registration Number for Gebchak Gonpa is 66194138-5.
