It is the Grand Abbot who orders for the care of Tintin, Captain Haddock, Tharkey and Snowy at the monastery until they are fit to leave. During their stay, the Grand Abbot tells Tintin to abandon his quest and return to his homeland. However, at the conclusion of Tintin in Tibet, the Grand Abbot leads a ceremonial emissary group of monks, who present Tintin with a silk scarf in honour of both the bravery he had shown, and the strength of his friendship with Chang.
