The Gyuto monks practice the major Tantric texts such as Guhyasamaja, Chakrasamvara and Yamantaka and have passed these lineages on to the younger generation of monks for over 500 years without disruption.
Many lost their lives on the journey into exile.
Throughout the past fourty plus years, while enduring serious privation as refugees, they have preserved the ancient traditions and carefully rebuilt their monastic community to today's number of over four hundred monks in India.
Several elder monks from the original Ramoche cathedral have played an important part in the establishment of the Gyuto wheel of Dharma Monastery and are much loved teachers and spiritual friends to the community.
Gyuto Wheel of Dharma Monastery is part of a larger cultural preservation effort whereby a new generation of young Gyuto monks continue the unbroken Dharma lineage and offer the promise that the sacred teachings will not be lost.
