Since I practice BHS Tibetan Buddhist Feng Shui, I am interested in all things Tibetan. There is a marvelous slide show of a day in the life of a Tibetan monk over at the NPR blog taken by Kaushal Parikh. The visuals are stunning (see that bright yellow door!) and the essay informative. In the picture below, you can see a sleeping dog. He reminds me of our dog Hershey who has very meditative qualities about him. I knew that the new monks of Skete kept dogs (we trained our dogs by their books) but I didn’t realize Tibetan monasteries kept dogs, too.
I encourage you to visit the NPR site and thank you to Kaushal Parikh for bringing us this wonderful photo essay.
