A Peek into the Life of a Tibetan Monk with @gdax
For a peek into the daily life of Tibetan monk དགེ་འདུན་དབང་ཕྱུག (Gedun Wangchuk), follow @gdax on Instagram.
དགེ་འདུན་དབང་ཕྱུག, or Gedun Wangchuk, (@gdax) is a Buddhist monk living in Tibet, where he uses Instagram to share scenes from his daily life atop one of the highest locations on earth. The region boasts an average elevation of 4,900 meters (16,000 feet) and is home to some of the world’s tallest mountains, including Mount Everest at the Nepal border to the southwest.
"Mankind shares and lives on planet Earth as one family with each continent having its own different nationalities, religions, faith, customs, unique culture and languages. But aside from such differences, we all have the same common desire for happiness," Gedun says. "That’s why Instagram, as a window to this global family, is a joy."

Montgomery Clift in Hitchcock’s I Confess, 1953.
In the early 60’s I was working in a revival theater in New York and we were showing I Confess. And who should arrive one afternoon, but Monty Clift. This is, of course, was 10 years after his accident, so his face was not quite the same, and it was only a couple years before he died… And at one point during the movie he came and stood in the back, and in those days you could smoke in a theater, and he’s standing in the back smoking, and I went over to him and asked him how it felt to see himself in this movie. And all he said was, “It’s hard… it’s very hard.” - Peter Bogdanovich
