Beautiful monastery build up of the mountainside - Sera Monastery, Lhasa, Tibet

from Wikipedia: "Sera Monastery is one of the 'great three' Gelukpa university monasteries of Tibet, located 1.25 miles (2.01 km) north of Lhasa. The other two are Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery. The origin of the name 'Sera' is attributed to a fact that the site where the monastery was built was surrounded by wild roses (se ra in Tibetan language) in bloom. The original Sera monastery is located in Lhasa, Tibet, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of the Jokang and is responsible for some 19 hermitages, including four nunneries, which are all located in the foot hills north of Lhasa. The Sera Monastery, as a complex of structures with the Great Assembly Hall and three colleges, was founded in 1419 by Jamchen Chojey of Sakya Yeshe of Zel Gungtang (1355–1435), a disciple of Tsongkhapa.

 

During the 1959 revolt in Lhasa, Sera monastery suffered severe damage, with its colleges destroyed and hundreds of monks killed. After the Dalai Lama took asylum in India, many of the monks of the Sera Monastery who survived the attack moved to Bylakuppe in Mysore, India. After initial tribulations, they established a parallel Sera Monastery with Sera Me and Sera Je colleges and a Great Assembly Hall on similar lines to the original monastery, with help from the Government of India."

Sera Monastery is one of the most important Gelukpa university monasteries of Tibet. Sera housed more than 5,000 monks in 1959 though few remain today. Although badly damaged following the invasion of Tibet and the Cultural Revolution, it is still standing and has been largely repaired.

Debates among monks on the Buddhist doctrines are integral to the learning process in the colleges of the Sera Monastery. Debating is seen to facilitate comprehension of the Buddhist philosophy in order to attain higher levels of study. The debating tradition supplemented with gestures is said to be exclusive to this monastery. The debates are held every day in the 'Debating Courtyard' of the monastery and are open to visitors. A unique and fascinating experience!
