He spent a year in Dharamsala in and lived in Nepal for over 25 years, where he established a home for his family. During that time he had many opportunities to receive teachings from Lama Zopa Rinpoche at Kopan monastery. He was one of the first directors of the Himalayan Buddhist Meditation Centre in Kathmandu. From the year 2000 he has spent a large part of his time in Latvia teaching Dharma and establishing Ganden Centre in Riga and Den Nyi Ling Retreat Centre, in the countryside.
