In 1978 Rinpoche founded a Dharma centre in France, which received Buddhist congregation status from the French state and became Ganden Ling Institute in 1995. In 2005 a new temple was inaugurated in Veneux-les-Sablons, where study weekends and retreats under the guidance of Dagpo Rinpoche are organized regularly.
Since the late seventies Rinpoche has shared his vast knowledge of Buddhism with a wide public. On their request he teaches in various European countries, in Asia and in the United States. He has founded additional Dharma centres in the South of France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Malaysia, Indonesia and India. Up until now, he has traveled to India almost yearly to maintain contact with his teachers and monasteries.
In 2005 Dagpo Rinpoche completed a long term project, the reconstruction and transfer of the Dagpo Shedrup Ling monastery to the Kullu valley in Northwest India.
