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.
