Rumtek Monastery

For two and a half days, we were given the opportunity to experience the Rumtek Monastery. We got to learn many aspects of Buddhism from two monks named Khempo and Karma. Being a monk is a huge sacrifice, so I was inspired by each and everyone of them. We got to eat lunch with them, and the prayer before they ate was very cool. Later that day, we got to watch their puja which is  a prayer in song. We got to go to many sacred places in the monastery where not many people are able to see. I’m very grateful for the whole experience.
