Studying Hard

The BuddhistChannel reports:

Loden Jinpa, one of a handful of Buddhist monks and nuns who live on the property, has just begun a PhD in philosophy and spends his days researching at the State Library or reading ancient Tibetan texts.

But, unlike most doctoral students, Mr Jinpa has never done undergraduate study and was admitted to the PhD only after he managed to write an honours thesis in eight weeks ó a task that takes most students 10 months.

Nice job, Loden.
