Pema Ts'al:  Blossoms in the Lotus Grove
Pema Ts'al: Blossoms in the Lotus Grove

The children of Pema Ts'al are Tibetans living outside of Tibet.  This is a living experiment about Tibetan exiles and their diaspora from Tibet into places such as Nepal and India, respectively.  Since 1959, Tibet and its culture and people have been reshaped by politics. When the Dalai Lama resettled in Dharamsala, waves of Tibetans followed.  This series features images of Tibet, India and Nepal through the context of young students--the future of Tibet. Students of the Pema Ts'al Sakya Monastic Institute in Pokhara have relocated from their homes in the remote Himalayan kingdom of Mustang (once Tibet) to become monks. Students from the Pema Ts'al School in Mundgod are gifted children living in refugee camps on Indian soil. Both groups are supported from the outside under the auspices of Khenpo Pema Wangdak, a Tibetan monk living in exile in New York City for over thirty years.  Khenpo Wangdak is committed to preservation of Tibetan culture and monastic practices through education.
