Travel Photo: Buddhist Student at Tawang Gompa

The Tawang Gompa in Western Arunachal Pradesh offers so much to the discerning global traveller. It has rich culture. It is set amidst the mighty Himalayan mountains and thus offers a pretty setting. It has vibrant colours. It offers a rich learning experience both to Buddhists and others. And, you feel at peace in its spiritual perimeter.

As I was walking through the large Tawang Gompa campus, I spotted this young Buddhist monk deeply engrossed in his book.This moment was too difficult for me to pass and hence I captured this learning moment.

In this photo, the Buddhist monk is standing next to a clothes line on the terrace of the monk quarters inside the Tawang Gompa. It was only when I stood there clicking his picture for a long while, did he raise his head. But, he went back to his book after throwing a shy smile at me.
