Three Young Monks.

Had the honour of visiting a few different Tibetan Buddhist classes at Pal Ewam Namgyal Monastic School in Pokhara, Nepal in April of 2012. These boys were deeply focused on their teacher's words while being illuminated by the magical morning light. Had no idea what was being said, but it was easy to see that learning was in progress. ©2014 Valerie Rosen; All rights reserved.

Hot Tea for a Stranger.

Recalling one fateful day in May, 2012, up on a hill, somewhat lost on the outskirts of Pokhara, Nepal, I found myself overcome by an unexpected torrential downpour, complete with gusty winds that deafened a call for help, where not a soul could be seen in any direction. I remain grateful to this woman and her teenage son for their kindness to a stranger and a welcome hot cup of tea.

Contemplative.

A few of the older boys at Pal Ewam Namgyal Monastic School in Pokhara, Nepal, contemplate their teacher's words. I was fortunate to be permitted to observe and photograph some of the lessons, granting me the opportunity to capture some candid moments of learning in progress. April, 2012. ©2014 Valerie Rosen; All rights reserved.
