Thereafter, he went on a pilgrimage around Tibet. At the same time, he received many teachings including the Mahamudra from Venerable Yogi Yanga.

At 2007 he went to India to try to further his studies at an established Buddhist university. However, he did not get the chance due mainly to financial problems.

His aspiration is to be able to continue his studies, widen and share his knowledge with everyone. He hopes to learn English to be able to propagate the Dharma to as many people as possible. He hopes every being will be enlightened just like the Buddha.
