Ngakpa & Ngakmo
An Introduction to the White Sangha of Ngakpas and Ngakmos
The white sangha (gö-kar-chang-lo'i-dé or ngak'phang) is a community of yogic practitioners or ngakpas and ngakmos ordained according to tantric samayas. Although we are ordained, Ngakpas (male)and Ngakmas (female) are householders and are bound by different commitments to the monastic or vinaya vows of the Red Sangha.
