Today, you will wake up little early and take breakfast then we head to Ganden Monastery to visit one of significant Geugpa sect monastery situated in Ganden. Ganden denotes the paradise of Tushita and the abode of Jampa, the future Buddha. The monastery, one of Gelugpa’s great six was built on a ridge called Gokpo RI, the site where Tsong khapa first meditated in order to choose a place for the main monastery of the sect. Its foundation was laid 1409. In 1417, Ganden’s main chapel, the Tsokchen, was established. It is also the most devastated on among all the great six monasteries (Ganden, sera, Drepung, Tashilhunpo, Labrang, Kumbum) of the Yellow sect. Ganden’s abbotship unlike other monasteries is transmitted neither by heredity nor incarnation. It was always chosen from among worthy learned monks; usually from the major monastery of Lhasa. The drive will takes about 1.5 hrs with wonderful landscape view and fine highway. After visiting Ganden, we drive back to Lhasa. Rest day at free. Overnight in Lhasa.
