No words to describe these pics. Stunning would be an understatement.

This awesome Stupa built in 1651 is in the main gardens of central Beijing. The small shrine in front contains a beautiful statue of Yamantaka and the plaque beneath it reads: Here is enshrined the image of Yamantaka said to be the Guardian of Beijing. Inside the gate is a Gelug Temple.

Various views of Larung Gar aka Serthar Buddhist Institute where my very good friend Ven. P. Gyatso lived for several years at the time when Khenpo Jikme Phuntsok was alive.

Quote:
A road divides a town of wooden cabins into two parts in Serthar in southwest Sichuan Province. On the left is where nuns live, while on right are houses for monks. The Serthar Buddhist Institute, also known as Larung Gar Buddhist Academy, is sited in the Larung Valley near the town of Serthar. Despite its remote location, at an altitude of 4,000 meters in the Karze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Sichuan and more than 800 kilometers by dirt road from the nearest city, the institute has grown from a handful of disciples to become one of the largest centers for the study of Tibetan Buddhism in the world, numbering nearly 10,000 monks, nuns, and lay disciples.
Quote and image directly above from Shanghai Daily.com
At the time my friend was resident there were approximately 10,000 monks, 6,000 nuns and several hundred laypeople.

Below is a water colour of Manjushuri painted for me by Ven. Gyatso

There are some more paintings by Ven. Gyatso painted for me here here and here.

Regards,
