Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling was established in the aim of propagating the pure teachings of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni, as well as promoting Tibetan Buddhism - especially the Gelug lineage of Lama Tzong Khapa, in Singapore.
We aim to provide a conducive environment for one’s chanting, meditation and contemplation of Buddha’s teachings and be a place for all sentient beings to cultivate their Dharma practice.
Our name, Dro-Phen Ling, was auspiciously conferred upon by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Gaden Monastery (India) in the December of 2001. Dro-Phen Ling means, "A PLACE TO BENEFIT BEINGS". Dro-Phen Ling is a direct collegiate affiliate of
Gaden (one of the three great monasteries) Shartse College, hence the full name - Gaden Shartse Dro-Phen Ling (GSDPL). Gaden Shartse is a distinguished monastic institution originating from Tibet, which later re-established in Mundgod, South India.
Other than public pujas, GSDPL also conducts regular weekly pujas at the centre at 7.30pm every Saturday. Through participation of the pujas, each individual collects bountiful merits and purifies bad karma thereby overcoming all various obstacles. (Open to all members of the public - Welcome to join us!)
GSDPL also organizes monthly visits to
Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society – a non-profit organization that cares for 87 elderly people living in the block of one-room flats at Indus Road. Every 2nd Sunday of each month, we gather together to pack goodies bags (containing cooking oil, rice, canned food, instant noodles etc) and free vegetarian lunches to distribute to the old folks thereafter.
Membership at GSDPL is free. Join us in these joyful and meritorious practices!
