Rinpoche never turns away anyone who is qualified to join the monastic sangha. All the expenses required to live and study at the monastery are borne by Rinpoche. These include housing, food, medical care, clothing and even pocket money for all the monks and nuns.
It is said that those who have command over their mind can also command the physical elements. Penor Rinpoche wrote once again in ink on a conch shell, this time the mantra of Manjushri, the bodhisattava of wisdom. Even when the ink had faded the letters remained luminously embossed on the conch, which is still kept and cherished by Khenpo Namdrol. This was recognized as a sign that the tradition of Nyingma scholars would flourish and continue at Namdroling.
