Stunning photos of Larung Gar in Tibet

Post by Punya » Sat Jun 29, 2013 9:33 pm

Little boxes on the hillside... home to 40,000 Buddhist monks: The stunning makeshift town that has sprung up around a Tibetan monastery

The remote settlement located in the Larung Valley, Serthar County of Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in China. Thousands of tiny homes sprawled up the mountainside form one of the world's largest Buddhist institutes.

Just as the trunk of an ordinary tree
Lying in the forests of the Malaya mountains
Absorbs the perfume of sandal from the moist leaves and branches
So you come to resemble who whomever you follow.

Through Dzogchen we can really understand what God is and we don’t have to worry if there is a God or not. God always exists as our real nature, the base, for everybody. - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
