Due to the ban the Dalai Lama has enforced, Dorje Shugden practitioners may not associate with non-Dorje Shugden practitioners in any way, shape or form. A large group of monks wishing to continue their practice of Dorje Shugden, had to separate from Sera Monastery in order to carry out this directive. They have formally started a new monastery called Serpom Norling Monastery nearby. They currently have many qualified Geshes and altogether 500 monks.
