More than 300 Buddhist followers from Tibet, Sichuan and other regions attended the ritual, including 11 monks who graduated from the college on Wednesday and acquired the "Tho Ram Pa" degree, one of the highest academic degrees in Tibetan Buddhism. The monks were awarded the degree, equivalent to a doctorate, after taking a six-day exam on Tibetan Buddhist sutras.
