A Residence for Temple Caretaker Lamas

Lama Residence

The caretaker practitioners of Deden Tashi Choeling Temple are in need of a proper residence. These caretaker practitioners are in charge of the day-to-day service and operation of the temple, including such duties as cleaning and filling the multiple seven-bowl water offering sets for the shrines on each of the Temple's three floors, as well as upkeep inside and of the area surrounding the Temple.

Every day, the resident caretaker practitioners perform a morning Tara practice and a fire puja (or "Sang"), and in the late afternoon, they perform protector practices and other prayers of Guru Padmasambhava.  The resident practitioners are mainly those who have completed three-year retreat on the land.
The planned residence will consist of two stories and at least six rooms, with three on the first floor and another three on the second. In addition to the resident caretaker practitioners, the planned residence will accommodate lamas who live full time on the land as well as those who visit the temple for a short time retreat.
