Lama Zopa Rinpoche has expressed the importance of continually developing Nalanda Monastery’s facilities and programs in order to create a major seat of monastic learning in the West and accommodation for an extra 100 monks.
To achieve this, a 15-year master plan has been drawn up to skillfully develop Nalanda’s land and cater for its foreseen growth.
Phase One of the plan runs through 2012 and includes the construction of new accommodations for 25 monks and two teachers and the development of new infrastructure, a new heating system, and extensive landscaping. At Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s request, we include here an overview of Nalanda’s 15-year plan which is available in detail on the Nalanda website.
