The group of Mindrolling monasteries is one of the six main groups of monasteries within the Nyingma sect. The Mindrolling Monastery was the first monastery where Direct Transmission and Mind Transmission were combined, where old translations of sutras and treatises from all over the world were collected, where uncovered dharma treasures from the south of Tibet were collected, and where historians of the Nyingma sect gathered. It is therefore the monastery that most completely embodies the totality of the Nyingma sect. It is responsible for reviewing and making final decisions on the dharma books and the history of the Nyingma sect. Even today the Mindrolling monasteries still serve as models for all of the large and small monasteries of the Nyingma sect to emulate.
