Heap of white rice

Tibet Day 3

The Drepung Monastery’s buildings are painted white and stacked up on the hillside such that they resemble a pile of white rice. The words “dre” and “pung” mean “rice” and “heap.”

Along the route up to the main hall, we passed an eternal prayer wheel, which mesmerized me for a long while…

until a ram that had been released as a prayer offering ambled by.
