I visited the monastery in 2005 to photograph the preparations for the sacred Cham dancing and the festival for the Tibetan New Year in late January. These dance forms go back to the ninth century when Buddhism was introduced to Tibet from India. The dances are now preserved in exile in Bhutan, Nepal and India. The New Year Festival and the Cham dancing is a way of sharing a profound inner experience and at the Bylakuppe Monastery the dances are performed as the monks’ spiritual gift to the lay community.
