Tek Chok Ling Nunnery

In 1984 Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche visited Yolmo. This area known as Helumbu to the Nepalese, almost directly north of Kathmandu Valley, just inside Nepal but bordering on Tibet, is known as the Hidden Valley. In the Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa it is said that Marpa told Mila “This place was prophesied in the Avatamsaka Sutra (by the Buddha), so you should go there and meditate.” It is a place visited and blessed by Guru Rinpoche, Yeshe Tsogyal, Marpa, Mila and many other yogis and yoginis. The mountains and valleys are filled with sacred treasures.

                         Up in the sky's expanse, true being, unborn, forever pure
                         Beautiful is the world below me—how many colors do I see
                         But when I look I can't find anything that's born or has a root
                         So the time has come to meditate on true reality, of ego-clinging free
