Travels to India

Travels to Tibetan monasteries-in-exile in India

The monastic universities Drepung, Sera and Ganden in Southern India belong to the biggest monastic institutions of exiled Tibetans. They were modeled after the monasteries of the same name in Tibet with the help of the Indian government.

Willi Maassen has already organized several travels to those monasteries at net cost for friends and members of Tibethaus. A special highlight has always been that his traveling companions could get to know the parts of the monasteries our teacher Dagyab Kyabgön Rinpoche is in charge of. Thus they were able to establish a closer contact to his disciples there. For the excellent board and simple lodging in the corresponding guesthouses our traveling group gave donations.

Another reason for our visits to these monastic universities are the teachings of H.H. the Dalai Lama taking place for several days. Dagyab Rinpoche recommends his closer students to use these valuable opportunities as His Holiness will not be able to give these teachings for ever.

A beach stay of several days in Goa is usually included.

Those who are connected with Tibethaus or Dagyab Rinpoche and want to join in such a travel is invited to soon contact  Willi Maassen Phone: +49-228 31 94 32.
