Nyarma is an enormous monastery complex founded around 1000 in Ladakh or ‘land of the high passes’. Ladakh is a region administered by India as a union territory that lies west of Tibet, north of Lahaul and Spiti and east of Kashmir, which is renowned for its breath-taking landscapes, crystal clear skies, and Buddhist monasteries and festivals. Nyarma is an important site as it marks the beginnings of Tibetan Buddhism in the region. Unfortunately, its architectural splendour and mural paintings lies almost in ruins today.

We speak to two Orientations contributors, Gerald Kozicz and Pimpim de Azevedo, on the draw of Ladakh, the importance of Nyarma and conservation efforts to preserve the complex.

Lecture will take place on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm (HKT). It will be moderated by Yifawn Lee, Publisher and Editor of Orientations.
