The Tibetan New Year Celebration at the monastery begins with the monks gathering together at the monastic prayer hall. Special prayers are said at the gathering and the breakfast is served at the prayer gathering. There is a tradition of visiting the Lamas or the spiritual masters on the first day of the New Year, and it still continues to this day. The first day of the Tibetan New Year is sometimes referred to as the New Year of the Lama.
