Huge 15 meters high Avalokitesvara statue in the main temple of the Dudjom Nunnery in Shey. Avalokitesvara is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas and is also reincarnated in each Dalai Lama. The 11 heads in the statue represent different compassionate deities. In July 2017 this temple was personally inaugurated by the 14th Dalai Lama, whose life-size picture you can see placed on his throne.

Karma, the little novice nun I met earlier, as a 5-year old in Nyerma nunnery in 2015. This year I was lucky to meet her again, meanwhile transformed into a confident young lady, who visits the Lamdon School in Thiksay, thanks to funding and the care of the elderly nuns in Nyerma.
