Today many old students and some new students came to see Ven. Rinpoche and to get prayers and blessings. Most of them were elderly people. He greeted all of them and told them that he is very happy to see them every year when he comes to Mongolia. He met them individually and asked them about their life and gave guidance to those who needed it. He spoke about the importance of living a meaningful life by practicing kindness and compassion. He emphasised how important it is to put the teachings of the Buddha into practice in our daily lives.

In the afternoon, he continued meeting children who were receiving support from Asral Charity and asked about their current situation. He distributed clothes and sweets to the children.
