Drepung Gomang Handicraft and Training Center


The Gomang Handicrafts Center creates banners, and other items that are sold to provide small income for the monastery.  Not all of the monks at Gomang are inclined to pursue a Geshe degree in Buddhist philosophy.  Some of these monks choose, instead, to serve the monastery by contributing their talents to making religious items at the Handicraft Center.  In addition, the Center provides employment to both Indian and Tibetan lay persons from the surrounding areas where they learn tailoring.
