Monasticism is one of the most fundamental institutions of Buddhism. Monks and nuns are responsible for preserving and spreading Buddhist teachings, as well as educating and guiding Buddhist followers. Buddhist monasteries emerged from the practice of vassa, the retreat undertaken by Buddhist monks and nuns during the South Asian rainy season. These monasteries gradually developed into centers of learning where philosophical principles were developed and debated. According to a legend Yumbulagang was the first building in Tibet and the palace of the first Tibetan king, Nyatri Tsenpo. Under the reign of the 5th Dalai Lama the palace became a monastery of the Gelugpa school.

We recently visited this restaurant for lunch during our trip to Po Lin monastery. Vegetarian meals are served family style and are rather simple though fairly good and well prepared. It is probably one of the better, if not the only one, places for lunch
Never mind the image of the Buddhist monastery high atop the mountain, beyond the reach and understanding of ordinary men and women. The monks and nuns at Fokuangshan Monastery in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, promote humanistic Buddhism, which focuses on applying Buddhist precepts to everyday life. They welcome outsiders into their monastery. The night I visited Fokuangshan Monastery, over 2, Buddhist followers laypeople were attending a ceremony to renew their vows as Buddhists. The devoted wore plain black robes and filled the lawn outside the main shrine.
