Rumtek Monastery Sikkim India

Caught on camera in Rumtek Monastery. At New year during the Lama dances and prior to the performance a couple of masked monks would cajole and jest with the spectators. It was normal for me as photographer to be loaded with cameras pressed on me by Rinpoche's and monks, on this occasion I was mirrored by one of the playful monks, much to the amusement of the assembled crowd.
For an up to date view of Rumtek, The official International seat of H.H. 17th Karmapa, visit
