Before the chinese communist occupied Tibet,His Holiness Dudjom Jigdral Yeshi Dorjee built Rigzin Ghatseling monastery, at Buchcu, in Kongpo region of Tibet and established the first Lama Lingpa. These has been many accomplished masters and great ngakpa and gelong among His Holiness disciples. During that time, Dudjom Tersar flourished. After 1959, when we lost over freedom and had to seek refuge in India. During this wandering period, His Holiness found it utmost importance and necessity to established a monastery to avoid degeneration of Buddha doctrine. And to preserve the Nyingmapa lineage His Holinesss the XIV Dalai Lama requested Kyabje Rinpoche Jigdral Yeshi Dorjee to take charge
Keeping His Holiness Dalai Lama request in heart, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche decided on building a monastery and choose Orissa [Oddiyana written in text] to build Duddul Raptenling.Kyabje Rinpoche choosed Orissa [Oddiyana] as being one of the 24 sacred place. Kyabje Rinpoche sent a letter to the community in Pemakoe[ a very sacred place in south Tibet] mentainig about Rinpoche's plan to build Nyingmapa monastery and colony at Orissa In 1961,Kyabje Rinpoche named the monastery build at Camp no.3, Orissa TibetanRrefuge settlement, Duddul Raptenling . Initially the monastery to be built was where approximately 100 sangha can be gathered. CHULUNGTRULSUM [Amitabha ,Avalokiteshvara, Guru Padmasambhava statue was erected inside. On the far left is TROMA and on the far left Dorjee Droeloe. As in Tibet, from this monastery also, these period, moet of the prectitioners stays in retreat as there were no monastery school and hostel[shedra].
At later stages,around 1969 under the supervision of Lama Sherpa and Lama Donam, a two storey tsugla khang [moanastry]was build. Due to lack of resource, it took another 10 years to complete. It is the same reason the monastery was not built according to Kyabje Rinpoche's design. Around 1978, with the help of Tibetan representative, Tulku Tsephel, Duddul Raptenling Monastery was completed, Febuary 3,1979,His Holiness the Dalai Lama Consecrated and inaurgarated the 2 storey Duddul Raptenling monastery
