Today is the 29th day of final month according to the Tibetan Lunar calendar. The resident monks have been performing Mahakala pujas for the past two days. The text they are using was composed by 6th Karmapa, Thongwa Dönden.
Today, the third day, His Holiness presided over the puja for the whole day. This puja is performed specially before the New Year to remove obstacles and bring peace to the world.
