Final exam

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - TENTSEN SHINDEN / TIBET DAILY

A lama seek­ing the high­est aca­demic de­gree in Ti­betan Bud­dhism (in hat) takes ques­tions from se­nior monks in a final ex­am­i­na­tion on Tues­day. Ten can­di­dates from monas­ter­ies across the Tibet au­tonomous re­gion were ex­am­ined — and passed — in Lhasa, be­gin­ning on Fri­day at Gan­den Monastery. The test cov­ers gen­eral knowl­edge of Ti­betan Bud­dhism and the Ti­betan lan­guage, and in­cludes de­bates on doc­trine. About 100 lamas have been awarded the de­gree since the test re­sumed in 2004.
