CHAMGANG TEMPA KUNDRA

The Chamgang Tempa Kundra was constructed by Lama Kunzang Dorjee, founder of Jangsa Animal Saving Trust (JAST) and consecrated by H.H the Je Khenpo Trulku Jigme Chodrak in 2002.

For many generations, this site was a traditional place for slaughtering of innumerable bulls and yaks. Lama Kunzang Dorjee built the Kundra on this very site to dispel the negative karma of many generations.

JAST maintains the Tempa Kundra which now serves as a site for “Tsethar” – the Buddhist practice of saving of animal lives. JAST and devotees regularly perform many ritual offerings dedicated to the alleviation of the suffering of all sentient beings in general and of the animals in particular.

Jangsa Animal Saving Trust is pleased to share with you our 15 minutes documentary film "ZHIWAI LAMTOEN" The path of peace coinciding the auspicious Chotrul Dawa. The documentary highlights the journey undertaken by Lama Kunzang Dorjee Rinpoche and his team of Jangsa volunteers across the country advocating on the choice of food and its consequences based on scientific and spiritual reasonings. As part of the advocacy, the documentary depicts the use of theatre act titled "Aiee," as a medium to engage and exhibits the gradual decline of compassion from ones heart if one engages in non-virtuous act of killing. The documentary also follows the responses that the team had received from participants in schools, government offices and local communities across all 20 Dzongkhags. The documentary examines and sends out the message of peace with reflection on the noble and compassionate activities of successive dharma kings in Bhutan. Zhiwai- Lamtoen, the path of peace is brought to you by Jangsa Animal Saving Trust with the support from Brigitte Bardot Foundation.
