    Monks taking time out to play volleyball in Key Monastery. While on my trip to kaza I got a chance to visit key monastery and how it changed my thought process, earlier I used to think that all monks do is study and prayer but after meeting monks of key monastery it all changed.. They take time out for physical activities like playing games. They are such happy people that just by being around them my mood elevated. Hope to visit the place again soon..

    This is such a fun, educational moment for those of us who might have a narrow view of what monks are doing on a daily basis. I really appreciate that through this image you're opening our eyes and giving us a more rounded view of the monastery environment. Awesome action, too!
