This book was a joke, thought it might have some history and great photos of Sera Monastery. The author missed the boat here. What a place, Sera, with so many great buddhist teachers and masters.

Sera: The Way of the Tibetan Monk (Paperback). Sheila Rock (author), Robert Thurman (foreword). Tibet was once home to thousands of thriving Buddhist monasteries. But in 1959, following a Tibetan uprising against China's long occupation, nearly all were destroyed by the Chinese military, the practice of Buddhism was outlawed, and the Dalai Lama was forced into exile. In March of that year, Chinese tanks bombarded the 540-year-old Sera Jey Monastery in Lhasa, Tibet, killing hundreds of monks and destroying ancient texts and invaluable artifacts that had been collected over centuries.
