12 imagesThis story is a peek into the life of Jampa Gyaltsen, a 29 year old Tibetan living and studying in Bylakuppe, India, along with 3500 others. Jampa belongs to the Gelug Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and has been living in Bylakuppe, for about 8 years. He is currently finishing the first semester of his studies called "Perfection of Wisdom", which lasts about 8 years. Asking a Buddhist monk to select a favourite thing in his stark room is akin to asking a vegetarian how he likes his steak. Yet Jampa is neither baffled nor offended by the question. The choice is easy. "My favourite thing in my room would be my books because they ensure I never feel lonely. I have them for company at all times."
