Sera Jey Institute for Advanced Buddhist Studies and Practice

Deeptangan Pant
Listening to the gurgle of gongs and the clap of cymbals accompany the guttural chants, while the incense smoke fills the hall bathed in a red hue, is humbling. This spectacular monastery boasts of exquisite murals based on the life of Buddha. The paintings portray the different phases of his life – conception, birth, renunciation, enlightenment, teaching dharma and death. The monastery also has the paintings of all the Dalai Lamas apart from depictions of numerous deities.
