* The Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery (or Thekchog Namdrol Shedrub Dargye Ling) is the largest teaching centre of Nyingmapa (a lineage of Tibetan Buddhism) in the world. The Nyingma tradition is the oldest of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism (the other three being Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug). Devotees of Nyingmapa are sometimes referred to as 'the old school' because it is founded on the first translations of Buddhist scriptures from Sanskrit into Tibetan (in the 8th century CE).
