The Norbulingka Years

Tiffani was the first Westerner to be accepted at the Norbulingka Institute, founded by H.H. the Dalai Lama, in Dharmsala, India. At the time, the school’s primary concern was to preserve Tibetan culture for the Tibetan people living in exile. Today they have opened their knowledge to any one interested to study it.  Tiffani spent 3 years under the guidance of Temba Chophel and the class tutors.
