LELUNG MONK SELECTED FOR DEBATE
Sonam Tenzin, a monk from Lelung Valley is studying at Drepung Loseling Monastery, one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in India. This year he was chosen for the tsoklang. At the tsoklang, two individual students engage in a forty minute debate on Dharma (Buddhist scriptures) for an audience of approximately three thousand monks.
This represents a unique opportunity to develop one's knowledge. Sonam's selection is a result of how hard he has studied. Rinpoche would like to support him by offering a lunch (bread, tea and vegetables) to all the monks during the debate. Rinpoche would like to thank all the everyone who has generously supported his monks for many years.
