This is a photo essay of a visit to see the debating monks in an adjacent monastery.

Debate is used by the younger monks to understand and learn from their more experienced elders. Young minds set themselves against the masters to test their knowledge.

I am indebted to Glen, one of our travelling companions and one of the original Istanbul 6 for the use of these photos. He is a master at catching a unique view of the real people of Tibet. Enjoy, I did.
