Young Monks at Work -- Sherabling Monastery, Near Bir, Himachal Pradesh, India: We arrived to Sherabling Monastery on July 6th, 2010, the 75th birthday of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This complex is nestled in the outer Himalayan Mountains near the gorgeous town of Bir (a place home to none other than "Buck Star" a delicious little coffee house). The monastery was abuzz with young monks working to prepare for the festivities of the day. In the main lobby, walking down green marble stairs, I peered over this golden lion to see the boys working in unison, white on red, flairs of yellow popping out. It was an exciting day. -- Profits go to Serkong School
