The Way Of The Monks …

Buddhist monks at Tashilhunpo monastery in Shigatse Tibet. Founded in the 15th century it is one of the oldest and important monastery in Tibet. Throughout the centuries it has been the seat of the Panchen Lamas high ranking leaders of the Gelugpa Tibetan Buddhist tradition. As I was roaming around the monastery grounds surrounded by fabulous temples with gilded roof tops I met some Buddhist novices and caught this image … Taken with my Canon film camera using Ilford Delta 400.

      Tibet is indeed amazing especially the many beautiful monasteries scattered all over the land and the best time to visit is during religious festivities :-)
