In other places are images of other Bhodisattvas and philosophers like Nagarjuna from neighbouring state of Andhra. Time and again, a deep booming sound of the ceremonial Tibetan horn emanates from the upper storey. Monks of all shapes, ages, and sizes welcome you with a wide smile, grinning ear to ear. At any point of time, you can find some of these monks busy rehearsing the grand tantric poojas for which the Vajrayana system is famous, some of them making Mandalas, some more offering to show you around the place. On special occasions, there are spiritual sermons by veteran monks. If you are fortunate enough, you might encounter the Dalai Lama himself on your visit. These days it is a common sight to see shy monks being harassed by an odd social-media maniac tourist for the ridiculously ubiquitous ‘selfie’. One wishes visitors respected the peace of the place, not pollute it with plastic and certainly avoid invading into the privacy of monks’ lives.
