Monks near Gyantse

Monks at prayer in a small monastery outside Gyantse.

These monks belong to the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism. The sect is led by the Dalai Lama, and although his photograph has been banned by the Chinese authorities, every Gelugpa monastery leaves an empty dais in his honour.
