Now the actual marriage

We entered the main kitchen where the treasurer monk was receiving the donations and changing them into smaller yuan bills so they can be handed over to each of the 300 monks present during the ceremony. Off course we could not refuse the traditional butter tea..and another round..

A pack of Yuans left for the monks that were on duty or not in the house. Drepung monastery houses around 600 monks.
