Buddhism is the centre of Tibetan cultural life in Dharamsala, just as it was in old Tibet, and no aspect of Tibetan life escape its influence. Though secular culture is becoming increasingly rich, many of the colourful festivals which fire the imagination of Indians and foreigners are religious in nature and derive their inspiration from Buddhism. The focus of this cultural life in Dharamsala is Namgyal Monastery, the tantric college which performs rituals with and for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
