Monday 13 June 2022 marks the eighth anniversary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's visit to the Monastery Hill.
On that special day, the Dalai Lama blessed the monastery area and planted the first seeds of the myrtle plants together with the children present and in front of an audience of about 800 people.
With these images we want to relive with you the day of Saka Dawa eight years ago, when we had the incredible opportunity to receive the Blessing of the place where the Lhungtok Choekhorling Monastery will be built.
So I pray and hope that the realization of this project has a good purpose, an appropriate place, where one can study the authentic tradition and practice meditation. I think a place like this, a place where authentic tradition is carried on can be very useful.His Holiness the Dalai Lama
