Rinpoche took the time to explain his vision that he would like it to be a retreat center, suggesting that:
It would be excellent for those who have studied at Nalanda, both monastics and lay, to do semi-isolated retreats there in order to realize the teachings.
Therefore, by acquiring Gachepel, Nalanda can provide a retreat centre allowing monastic and lay practitioners to integrate and realize the Buddha’s teachings.
The results from achieving this goal are many. Notably more western practitioners will become qualified and experienced teachers, being able to benefit the Dharma and sentient beings. Also Gachepel will help to ensure the preservation of the complete Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the West.
