Today, on this auspicious occasion of the first day of Tibetan new year “Losar”, the year of the Iron Rat, a prosperous year filled with growth, I would like to make the announcement of my monkhood ordination.
Tashi Norbu as a Monk
A Founder of the Museum of Contemporary Tibetan Art
Tashi was the eldest son of the family and he had to accompany his two brothers at their age of 8 into the monastic life in Tibetan Monasteries in India. Mural 1,50 x 2,70 cm
“I was inspired by Rinpoche, in my whole life, thus I paint the Sky Dancers or the Flying Monks and Nuns. These are my “Time Travelers” depicted on my paintings. I was ordained as a Thangka Painter, by the previous reincarnation of Bokar Rinpoche”. Tashi says.
The famous “Time Travelers” are Artist’s monks flying into the sky beyond time and space.

He also supports the equalities and rights of women in Tibet and the monastic world.
