The School on Chobhar Hill has been open for five years now. Some girls have been here the entire time and grown into young women of strong bearing: educated trilingual-ly (Nepali, Tibetan and English) in western curriculae and deeply trained in the Buddhadharma - the study of Buddhism and the Meditation and Compassion practices that are its hallmarks. When asked, nearly all the girls express a fervent desire to either return to their homes of origin to help the local population, or continue their studies in order to be of service to a wider world. In these more classical portraits, I was struck by the combination of their thoughtfulness, vulnerability and genuine open-heartedness.
