Venerable Dagpo Rinpoche gives a Long Life Initiation, which attracts people from many different places. A lot of Tibetans, but Indians too. Afterwards, they all eat together in the schoolyard. Several times a year, a slightly smaller number of people from the area gather in the temple for a questions and answers session. During the weeks when Dagpo Rinpoche gives his lamrim teachings many visitors come from far, including for example a group of seniors from Spiti, students from Indonesia, Malaysia and several Western-European countries as well as from the USA.
