He praised the monastery’s abbot Gomang Khensur Lobsang Samten Rinpoche for taking the responsibilities of building the Von Ngari Monastery in exile which is part of Nga Dak Gyal Sum monasteries in Tibet.

“In Tibet,” he recalled, “Ngari Monastery was built by a group of monks who came from Ngari and built the monastery at Ön during the time of Gendun Gyatso, the second Dalai Lama.

He said the Nga Dak Gyel Sum, collectively conducted the great summer prayer ceremony.

His Holiness acknowledged the existence of a sizeable number of local people interested in Buddhism in the region. “Most Garsha, Khunu locals are Buddhist.”

He reiterated, “Whether one believes in Buddha’s teaching or not depends on one’s own inclination and ability. I don’t tell nonreligious people to be religious or say Buddhism is the best to those who practice religion.”

His Holiness advised the devotees to go through the texts of the teachings to become more familiar and added, “once you are familiar, then the implementation depends on the practice of kind-heartedness, with emptiness as its foundation.”

His Holiness has been staying at Ön Ngari monastery on Siyal road in Manali since August 10. He is going to be in Manali till August 27.
