Since his childhood he grew up in Kodaikanal, he never had the proper opportunity to learn about Tibetan culture and his religion, as there were no Buddhist monasteries to visit in Kodaikanal. So, as he wanted to learn more about Tibetan culture and his religion, he came to our monastery to learn more about it. He has visited places like Dharamshala to experience and learn about Tibetan Culture and Buddhism.

Currently he resides at Gaden Shartse Monastery in Mundgod, Karnataka where he is learning and studying about Tibetan culture and Buddhism.He is also volunteering to teach English classes at the Gaden Shartse Monastery’s primary school.
