About Me

I am happily married and I am mother of five year old daughter and seven months son. I am from Menchari, a very isolated village in Bartsham. I now live in Thimphu with my family and 72 year old mother.

But now, I mostly spend my time playing with my children. Whether it is singing, building a house, or cooking, in pretend-play, we build a world of our own and we find ourselves weaving memories of our own.

Now, I feel as if I am on the path.

Dongkala monastery was founded by Terton Tshering Dorji, who has left a footprint on a slab of stone, now stationed inside the monastery. The main nang rten is the statue of Buddha which is discovered by Terton Pema Lingpa from Mebar Tsho in Bumthang. It is said to …
