GROWING UP AS A GYUTO MONK

And here is a pair of photographs and a film of a young Gyuto Monk who joined the monastery at the age of 7 years old and who is now 17 years and taking on roles as a senior monk in the main temple. We are delighted to have watched his trajectory through the monastic curriculum. It is monks like Dakpa Tenzin who will keep this 600 year old tradition alive for the benefit of Tibetan Buddhism and future generations. On the site right here is a film about a day in the life of a monk which shows Dakpa as a very new young monk.088 - Version 210407115_802794076479521_6768650970231119806_n
