Morning Prayer Session in Puning Monastery
This video focuses on the morning prayer session in the Puning monastery in Chengde. The Puning monastery is the only monastery that has Mongol lamas and holds regular prayer sessions in Chengde. It has 60 resident lamas from Inner Mongolia and Qinghai province. It is fascinating to see some of the lay Chinese attendees chanting in the Chinese version of the sculptures, while the lamas chant in Tibetan. Most of those who attend the morning prayer sessions are however Mongols from the neighbouring Inner Mongolia.
