About Us

Byoma Kusuma Buddhadharma Sangha, Nepal (BKBDS-NP)

Our monastery in Kathmandu is situated in Bishalnagar and serves as both the residence of the Vidyadhara and the Sangha’s headquarters.

One of the chief attractions at the monastery is the shrine hall, which is beautifully decorated with traditional Pauva murals depicting the life of the Buddha and the Vajrayana masters of the Kathmandu valley, along with the pantheon of Vajrayana deities and mandalas.

Other Centres and Groups

We have centres in Hetauda and Mahendranagar. There are also informal groups in Banepa, Chaughare and Pattlaiya.
