New Nuns and Monks at Nagi Gompa
Saga Dawa Duchen, one of Tibetan Buddhism’s holiest days, celebrates Buddha Shakyamuni’s enlightenment and parinirvana. Ten girls and six boys from Dhola area became nuns and monks at Nagi Gompa. At the same occasion a group of senior nuns finished their sixteen day long fasting practice of Nyungne. Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche offered refuge vows and ordination to the girls and boys and officially concluded the Nyungne practice on this auspisious day. Please rejoice!
