We visited the Mongolian monastery a few times during our time in bodhgaya We met Gerel (officially). I had seen and had a few short conversations with her earlier in the week as she has a connection with the Jonang monks. We met at an coffee spot and asked her if she could give a little bit of her time for this shoot . She was already visiting the Mongolian monastery and that made it all very convenient for us. She is a wonderful warmhearted person who has her own business in the Mongolian capital. From the project women of Buddhism. @official_monnik_giel @trataka_photography

I'm normally not one for taking people close up on the street but this was part of a class and this guy didn't seem to mind. In fact he said he's on photos all over the world anyway... I think he enjoyed it a bit...
