Wow, these are really huge tormas!!! Must have taken a lot of time to get it done. They also sculptured Lama Tsongkapa and Tara too. So beautiful! I heard that these tormas last very long, at least a year. THe people who made these tormas would have gained a lot of merits through their patience and sincerity.

This triggered a thought that the Tantric Colleges Gyuto and Gyumed used to be attended by Gaden Monks from Gaden, Sera and Drepung. Now that we have Serpom and Shar Gaden, these monks certainly wont be admitted into such colleges. So I am thinking what I wonder if there will be a Tantric College setup to cater for the Tantric studies of Serpom and Shar Gaden?

This is a text that speaks of the origins of the Tantric Colleges and how the Monks can enter them
