Debating Buddhist Monks. The young Buddhist monks of the Dhakpo Shredrup Ling monastery at Kais, H.P. India practice twice every day in a special form of debating. The purpose of these playful discussions is to train the mind in logical thinking and reasoning and prepare for the more complex Buddhist philosophies that will be a great part of the monk's life in the years to come.
