Thousands of people, young and old gathered at the ground of Gaeddu College of Business Studies to receive blessings from His Eminence, the seventh Lam Namkhai Nyingpo Rimpoche on 9 October 2011.

The big crowd comprised of students, teachers, office goers and people of the community from as far as Samtse and Phuentsholing came forward with much respect and reverence to receive " Guru Tshengye Wang" from His eminent Rimpoche who had consented to the request of the staff and students of Gaeddu college. And it was the third visit Rimpoche had made.

Prior to the blessing, Rimpoche presided "Tsokor ceremony" and also gave the oral transmission of the mantra-recitation of Buddhas (of Jampelyang; Doelma; Guru; Chenrizig etc.) for the well being of all sentient beings. 

The present Namkhai Nyingpo Rimpoche was recognised by His Holiness the sixteenth Karmapa; and his root teacher was His Holiness Dilgo Khentse Rimpoche.
