Video from the Tibet Sacred Journey in 2007.
Maureen inside Sakya Monastery, Tibet
The outside is surrounded by hundreds of prayer wheels that are turned daily by monks and visitors alike. Near to Shigatse, the first monastery of one of the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism was built in 1034.
Sakya is the former seat of Tibetan Government. A very special place, the Sakya tradition developed during the second period of translation of the buddhist scripture from Sanskrit into Tibetan in the late 11th century.
