image019

In 1996, on the day before his enthronement as Abbot of Sera Mey, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who was visiting Sera Mey Monastic University at the time, commented to Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jamyang that while the Sera Mey Prayer Hall used to be not only beautiful but also of a perfect size for the monastery, it now looked like a dark little prayer hall. Khensur Rinpoche confirmed that the Prayer Hall could not accommodate the increasing population of monks and His Holiness advised his that they time had come for a new Prayer Hall.

On the following day, during his enthronement ceremony, Khensur Rinpoche reminded the assembly of the comments His Holiness had made the day before, establishing the project of a new Prayer Hall. The new Prayer Hall was completed in 2002 and in November of the same year His Holiness visited Sera Mey Monastic University to conduct the inauguration ceremony.
