New monk at Nalanda!

gyatsoEric Georges Clayton was a volunteer at Vajrapani Institute in California (USA) for years. In the Summer of 2014 he moved to Nalanda Monastery in order to volunteer and prepare for ordination.

August 21, 2015 was the big day: his teacher Jangtse Choedje Rinpoche Losang Tenzin ordained him at Geshe Jamphel’s new house.

Congratulations, Losang Gyatso (his new name)!  Besides being a monk and a Basic Program student, Gyatso is the caretaker of the gompa (temple) and he even finds time to paint parts of the new monks’ accommodation.
