In the Zhung Dratshang organization and administration, the primary upholders of the Dharma are the five eminent Lopen Lhengyes (minister ranking members of the council for religious affairs): the Dorji Lopen, the Yonten Lopen, the Tsugla Lopen, the Tshogki Lopen and the Laytshog Lopen who auspiciously symbolizes the Five Dhyani Buddhas.
The Laytshog Lopen is in charge of all of the Sangha’s service related activities, including administration, development, etc. He is also the chairman of the Dratshang Koedtshog (The Executive Committee).
Rinpochhe along with 10 other delegates on the advise of His Majesty the King is visiting Canberra to lay out plans for the construction of Druk Namgyel Choeling Monastery.
