Lhasa monks debating inside the Sera Monastery

Lhasa monks debating inside the Sera Monastery
As a part of their study, lamas must participate in debates to further their comprehension and proceed to more advanced levels of study. The debating traditions in the Sera Monastery are unique among the three famous monasteries in Lhasa. Debates are conducted by the lamas in the monastery every day beginning at 3.a.m. In a battle of words, they supplement their efforts by using a variety of gestures including clapping their hands, pushing their partners for an answer, or plucking their prayer beads to win the virtue of the Buddha.

Oh – this is so much needed in the schools of Sweden.

A great picture. Good capture of the interaction in the foreground. And good framing.
Again; thank you for your explaining texts.
