About us

We are a small group of Gangteng Rinpoche’s disciples in Estonia to fulfill the objectives of Gangteng Rinpoche


MTÜ Yeshe Khorlo Eesti (henceforth Yeshe Khorlo Estonia) is an independent, non-profit seeking association for the public interest, which aim is to put into practice various cultural and social activities as well as the activities increasing mental well-being, including promoting the Buddha’s teachings in general and Pema Lingpa’s lineage in particular.

Specifically, we work to establish a retreat center with a focus on 3-year retreat for the benefit of all Rinpoche’s students in a small village of Umbusi in Põltsamaa parish, Jõgevamaa county. The fundraising campaign to collect funds for this project started in summer 2018.


New update about construction works: 02.09.2022

We have a new perspective now – we can look at the retreat houses from the Khenpola’s house’s roof top. This week, the main effort was Khenpo Karma Wangyel’s house and the aim was to make it waterproof – the roof is covered now with waterproof roof cover. And the work continues. One of the retreat houses has floor already made, the other two houses still have no floor but this week we bought all the material necessary – around 1000 euros. Insulation layer (30 cm of rockwool) is almost done for the floor. As now the work which are going on, are quite extensive, we really need everybody’s help. We are very thankful to those, who already donated. Every small amount will be of help also!

Construction works update 22.08.2022

As of 22nd August 2022, you can see on the photos that the houses have roofs. We had a difficult summer because the main constructor left and we had lot of trouble to find quickly another one. Finally we found one reliable person from Ukraine. He did not have much time to come up to now – he just managed to finish the roof works but from now onwards, he can work one full month for us.

From inside the wall insulation of 25 centimeters is done, now the floor insulation has to be finished (30 cm). Also the wind protection cover is placed.

We urgently need some funds to complete the window works for three houses (we have got an offer about 1000 euros per house – that is to say, we should get the windows for three houses (plus Khenpola’s house very soon).

We also need an urgent help for painting works that we could finish the boarding of the three houses. Please contact us if you have any help to offer.
