Drepung Gomang Monastery

Drepung Monastery was founded in 1416 by Jamyang Choje near Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. Gomang is the oldest of the 4 colleges of Drepung. Gomang means "many doors" and this name comes from highly accomplished spiritual masters having deep realizations of emptiness which enabled them to pass through walls with no need for doors.
