The Tibetan Monks

 

 

There is something sweet, dear about them.

You see them everywhere in the town. You also see them in the monastery, of course.

You find them doing various chores and running errands.

We Hindus find their robes, and particularly the colours, quite different from those of Hindu monks. And of course are missing the other props.

Although I am a Hindu, somehow I find the Tibetan monks more approachable.

One minor warning, though.

Some of the images may not match your image of Tibetan monks!

But enjoy!

Observe the sweet expressions of the monk on the left.

Shop keeping.

Speaking on the mobile phone, not saluting a flag.

A lonely wait.

An unconventional entry!

How’s that! Quite unexpected, what? The vehicle, the bag, the hat and the beard! Going modern, You’d agree!

Hope you liked today’s post.

Bye, until the next time.

    The pictures here have reminded me of my good old days.

    My first brush with Chinese food was at a monastery in Kashmere Gate, New Delhi. We also used to go there to buy fancy jackets and wind cheaters.

    Colour cobination of dress code of monks definitely gives asthetic look simply well captured images. But not reveling any quantum of duty they perform is the scarcity, I feel.

      Outsiders are not allowed in their prayer rooms at the time of prayers. At the most one can photograph proceedings in the general hall.
