The Grand Guru Rinpoche puja which is held once in two years successfully concluded yesterday, 28th November in the courtyard of the monastery after a week of intensive pujas. The colourful and inspiring Lama dances on the final day also depicted the eight aspects of Guru Rinpoche.
As was evident from the attendance of the local community as well as the overseas students who paid respects to the grand statue of Guru Rinpoche at the final conclusion, this puja is both an inspiration and great blessings to everyone and all sentient beings.
