Monks and nuns walk across a steep hill back to their dormitory after attending a daily chanting session during the Utmost Bliss Dharma Assembly, the last of the four Dharma assemblies at Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute in remote Sertar county, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, China early November 1, 2015. The eight-day gathering of people chanting mantras and listening to teachings of monks starts every year around the 22rd of the ninth month on Tibetan calendar, the great day of Buddha’s Descending from Tushita Heavens. The Larung Wuming Buddhist Institute, located some 3700 to 4000 metres above the sea level was founded in 1980 by Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, an influential lama of Nyingma sect of Tibetan buddhism with only around 30 students but is now widely known as one of the biggest centres to study Tibetan Buddhism in the world.
