North Fife Photographs. These views relate to earlier posts of Tibetan life at Rumtek monastery Sikkim India at New Year. This folk opera takes place in a terraced garden in front of the Summer Palace backed by a peach orchard and enacts the lifetimes of H.H. Gyalwa Karmapa. It is repeated daily at the end of which everyone has learned the history of The Karma Kagyu Lineage. It has much dancing and song. The 1st incarnation was Dusum Khyenpa 1110-1193 AD and through to the 16th Ranjung Rigpe Dorje.
