Read about a small monastery school in Ladakh

Lunchtime with a Geshe

"I feel embarrassed, that we can offer you only such a simple food", my tibetan friend Jigme says, who took me today to his school. This small school is situated in the village Spituk in Ladakh and Jigme is a teacher there. His students are small buddhist monks.

Geshe La and Jigme

Geshe La and Jigme

My heart is pounding with excitement. We are sitting in the office of the school manager, a so-called "Geshe". This is a monk, who achieved this title after studying Buddhism for 25 years. No, the food - traditional lenses and rice - is wonderful; I say and know that the food was made with love.
