Hundreds of Buddhist followers from across the country and outside Nepal gather at the monastery premises to receive blessings from Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher and meditation master, along with other Rinpoche as they believe that their all sins, bad luck and diseases will be cured. Annually during mid-January, nuns and monks conduct Drubchen mass worshipping for eight nights and nine days continuously at Nagi Gumba starting this year from 14 January 2019. Nagi Gumba is a monastery in Shivapuri National Park exclusively run by nuns. During this mass worshipping, the nuns and monks worship for a long life and for the peace of deceased nuns and monks who are believed to turn into birds and animals in next life.
