This is the central alley through the middle of the complex. I say
alley but of course it functions as a road, with cars and trucks
delivering things. 2,700 people live in the complex – students,
teachers, people working and worshiping in their ways. It’s quite
fascinating, and with a very different feel from what Christians think
of as a monastery – much more alive and lively, and full of people and
kids and monks young and old. Following are a few shots of some of the
bigger more beautiful buildings.
