Sheila Rock, a profesional photographer presents moving portraits of the monks and their community that carries on the legacy of the original Sera Monastery. Tibet Foundation Newsletter). In more than 100 dramatic duotone photographs, Sheila Rock tells the story of Tibetan Buddhist life at Sera Jay Monastery in Mysore, India.

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. Beauty of Tibetan Buddhism and great sages beyond compare was not captured here in photos or literary thought.

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.

Lovely and truthful photos of the monks themselves. This is not a temple picture book. It is a book of real people practicing their religion and way of life.

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 . Beauty of Tibetan Buddhism and great sages beyond compare was not captured here in photos or literary thought. Waste of my money.
