Ugyen Rinpoche, 5 years old when this photo was taken, lives in an ornate chamber on the third floor of Palpung Monastery. He is considered the reincarnation of a holy being, and as such is receiving a Buddhist education in preparation for the leadership role he will assume when he comes of age. He was discovered living in a tent with this family, who are nomadic herdsmen, before being brought along with them to live at Palpung. Although he is not, strictly speaking, confined or restricted, he nevertheless seldom leaves his room.
