ABOUT US

The foundation of Virtual Achen Gar was fully inspired by the actual monastery of the same name in Eastern Tibet founded according to Jamyang Lungtok Gyaltsen Rinpoche’s prophecy. ’’Gar’’ means ‘gathering’ or ‘encampment’. We propose a parallel model of a virtual ‘encampment’ that will facilitate the transmission of Dharma to the international students following Jamyang Lungtok Gyaltsen Rinpoche’s lineage of  hosting Dharma teachings, conducting online-home retreats and organizing group practices and learning.
