Losar Rumtek Monastery

Losar Rumtek Monastery.

Residents of Rumtek community congregate beside the Gompa in traditional song and dance.

A view of Rumtek Monastery, behind is H.H.Karmapa's summer palace in a peach orchard. far above is the long retreat compound.

Visitors from Sikkim, Bhutan and afar enjoy the opera.

Folk Opera, an enactment of the lives of Karmapa performed daily for a week or so,entertainment
but also instructive and by repetition (rote), a good way to learn.
