The monks have holiday on Wednesday afternoons after their morning classes, cleaning, and Laundry chores and then all day Thursdays.
Because they study hard from 6:00am till 9:00pm the rest of the week, they are very excited on These days. There is so much activity the trees are filled with little monks, and others are wrestling and tying each other to the trees : ) Cricket and football and volleyball are being played by the older monks- Most of them could be pro athletes! There is a game called Carrem that is really fun and the monks could play that all day. It is just an all around fun day even if you are just watching you can't help but feel happy and have fun.
H.E Avikrita Rinpoche also enjoys the monks holiday
And the Monks really enjoyed the donated Puzzles ( Thank you Kathleen Ramm!) bought from our very own Dharma Shop at Sakya Monastery in Seattle : ) This one is Chenrezig.
