Recent update from Rinpoche on 24th August 2016 - RIGUL CHLDREN TELLING STORIES
"This is a special program organized in Rigul School where children told stories, legends, jokes and all those things that they learnt from their parents and grand parents. A good way to preserve the old folk culture of the land which is being slowly forgotten. A new thing that started in Rigul and now being appreciated by many other places in Tibet." Ringu Tulku We hope to have pictures soon!
