The old man of Yongning

lu zuo, originally uploaded by mutikonka.

When we visited Yongning monastery in 1996 on our way to Muli we met Lu Zo who was by then an old man in his seventies.

Lu Zo is still the head lama at Yongning.

He is second from right in this picture, accompanied by a younger monk from the rebuilt monastery [and a couple of my kiwi companions]. See further down this blog for how the monastery itself looks now and 70 years ago.
