The head office of the monastic administration is known as Changzoe Khang (Monastic Administrative Office) with 7 executive administrators, two secretaries (Tib & English Section), one accountant, nine executive members in all. Except English Secretary and monk drivers, all the staff at the administrative office is of three year terms. The directors, accountant and Tibetan secretary are elected by the monks at the prayer congregation.
There are more than 200 monk staff who are working under the Administrative Office, handicraft-training center, library, medical store, dairy farm, prayer hall temple and school. Most of them are all volunteers and no salary as such is paid to them. They work for many years serving the monastery.
There are also staff who do their duty for three months such as supervisor of the canteen and communal kitchen. Five to ten monks work in the canteen and communal kitchen as helper for a day. The monks are doing every minor to major work themselves. With dire need of funds, this service by the monks saves huge labor expenses.
