On November 3rd and 4th Kopan nunnery in Nepal celebrated the Geshema Damcha, the final step in the Geshema ceremony rituals. The term “Damcha” means answering in the debate process.

On November 5th the nunnery celebrated the annual Geshema graduation ceremony. This year 10 Geshemas have completed their studies and passed the exams: 7 Geshemas from Jangchup Choeling Nunnery and 3 from Dolmaling Nunnery.

The entire Kopan family would like to extend huge congratulations to all the Geshemas. We pray for their long life, good health and happiness. May their dharma wishes be fulfilled without any obstacles!
