The lineage transcends generations, with the purpose of preserving the glorious and victorious Neydo tradition - a union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen practices. The monsatry, hence was founded to ensure the continuity of this unique Buddhist Lineage.
Amitabha, the Buddha of Eternal Life
Amitabha (meaning - Infinite Light), also known as Amitayus (meaning - Infinite Life), the Buddha of the Western Pure Land (Sukhavati) hence is called "The Buddha of Eternal Light anf Life". As related in the Sukhavati-vyuha-sutras (the fundamental scriptures of the Pure Land sects), many ages ago a monk named Dharmakara made a number of vows, the 18th of which promised that, on his attaining buddhahood, all who had faith in him and who called upon his name would be reborn in his paradise and would reside there in bliss until they had attained enlightenment. Having accomplished his vows, Dharmakara reigned as buddha Amitabha in the Western Paradise, called Sukhavati, the Pure Land.
The Boudhanath Stupa
For hundreds of years, the Boudhanath Stupa has stood as a beacon of Buddhist belief; a symbol for eternal peace. The huge meditative monument with it's massive mandala, making it one of the largest stupas in Nepal and the world, is said to have been created just after the passing of the Buddha, some time around the 14th century. The huge offering site quickly became a focal point of worship and offering for the lineage. The stupa is believed to entomb the remains of Kassapa Buddha & the painted all-seeing-eyes are the reflections of the all-knowing nature of Buddha.
The Neydo Tashi Choling Monastery
The Monastery houses the statue of Buddha Amitabha, incidentally one of the biggest statue in Nepal. To the right is the statue of Avaloketeshvara, the Buddha of Compassion and to the left is the statue of Vajrapani, the Protector and holder of the Buddha’s sacred teachings. Avaloketeshvara, supremely exemplifies the Bidhisattava’s resolve to postpone his own Buddhahood until he has helped every sentient being on earth achieve liberation (moksha) from suffering (dukha) and the process of death and rebirth (samsara). Vajrapani is one of the earliest Dharmapala of Mahayana Buddhism. He protects Buddha and manifests all the Buddha’s power as well as the power of all five Tathagatas. In Tibetan Buddhism he forms a triad with Amitabha and Avaloketeshvara.
