The Dharma Wheel is used internationally by Buddhists of all sects. It has eight spokes and is also called the 'Wheel of Life'.

 

When the Buddha gave his first sermon in the Deer Park, he began the turning of the Dharma Wheel. He chose the beautiful symbol of the wheel with its eight spokes to represent the 'Noble Eightfold Path'. The Buddha's teaching goes round and round like a great wheel that never stops, leading to the central point of the wheel, the only point which is fixed, Nirvana. The eight spokes on the wheel represent the eight parts of the Noble Eightfold Path.

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!

The symbol of Tibet is the yak and I saw this statue on the way to the Sera Monastery. Lhasa, Tibet

 

I do not know if they were real gold or not and the statue was in the middle of a round about (rotary) and the picture was taken as we drove by.

Locate 240km NW of Lhasa, lying at an elevation of 4718m, having a surface area of 1920km2, the 'Heavenly Lake' Nam-tso is 1 of 4 holiest lakes in Tibetan Buddhims, also ranked as 1 of the 5 most beautiful lakes in China by Chinese National Geography magazine. Being the 2nd largest salt lake in China only after Qinghai Lake (Xining, Qinghai), Namtso is famous for its purity, crystal clear blue water joining with the sky in the horizon. On the other size of that fairy lake stands the Nyenchen Tanglha Mountain Range with its peak 7162m touching the heaven

Sera Monastery is one of the great three Gelukpa university monasteries of Tibet. The other two are Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery. The monastery is founded in 1419 AD. 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.

Sera Monastery, "Wild Roses Monastery" is one of the "great three" Gelug university monasteries of Tibet, located 2.01 km north of Lhasa and about 5 km3 north of the Jokhang. The other two are Ganden Monastery and Drepung Monastery. The origin of its name is attributed to a fact that the site where the monastery was built was surrounded by wild roses in bloom.

 

The original Sera Monastery is responsible for some 19 hermitages, including four nunneries, which are all located in the foot hills north of Lhasa.

 

The Sera Monastery was founded in 1419 by Jamchen Chojey of Sakya Yeshe of Zel Gungtang (1355–1435), a disciple of Je 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 Sera who survived the attack moved to Bylakuppe in Mysore, India.

 

Sera Monastery in Tibet and its counterpart in Mysore, India are noted for their debate sessions.
