Different names[edit]

quoting the article: "Yamdrok Lake is one of four such holy lakes, the others being Lhamo La-tso (mentioned above), Namtso and Manasarovar."

Samding[edit]

the article says: "Since it is not a nunnery, its female abbot heads a community of about thirty monks." What does this mean? Can it be called a monastery? Does the term monastery not refer to some gender?

  • "Samding (lit., the temple of soaring meditation) is one of the most famous shrines anywhere in Tibet. It is in many ways unique in that about half of the inhabitants are monks and the other half are nuns, while the head of the monastery with all its branches is a woman, a reincarnating embodiment of 'Dorje-pamo the pigfaced goddess, one of the most popular of the Tibetan deities."
