I should have known i’d run into monks playing football at over 12000ft ! They have a recently added volleyball patch too! and a garden, but we were told a yak broke in earlier in the week and ate a bunch of the sprouting veggies. They need to work on their yak-proof fencing!
Just a few years ago there were only 2 monks here because of its remoteness; however, a very dedicated lama teacher came and he’s been recruiting monks ever since – there are now 35 monks here and one Australian english teacher (a sign says they are always looking for more teaching help…so if you are looking for some meditation, open spaces, and time for contemplation an attentive monk class waits for you ….)
