First Visitor of the Season

On May 1st, Gonthang Rinpoche came to spend two days at Norden, being the first important visitor of the season. Rinpoche, who is 14, and undergoing a strict monastic curriculum at nearby Labrang Monastery, was taking a rare break from his studies. The visit which was not planned and happened on the opening day, was seen as a very auspicious event.
