A wintry morning casts faint sunshine on snow-covered roofs of Larung Gar Buddhist Institute, housing tens of thousands of students of Tibetan Buddhism. The modest dwellings are packed tightly together, with a frosty road bisecting them like rivers of light. People walking alone or in pairs look like exclamation points in the snow. This peaceful image evokes the practices of meditation and nonviolence that characterize life in Larung Gar.
