Expressions

It was a most interesting sight to see the varied expressions of these young monks while enjoying the autumn sun and sharing a soft drink in great camaraderie among them. The smiles and the lighthearted mood was quite a contrast to the intense and disciplined life these young men lead while undertaking their teachings in Hemis Monastery,Ladakh,India.
