Ten eminent monks obtained the Larampa Geshe, the highest degree in the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, by passing a debating test in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region on Thursday of April 3.

More than 100 monks attended the debating session at Jokhang Temple in the regional capital Lhasa, where the 10 candidates had a fierce exchange of ideas regarding the content of five classics works in Tibetan Buddhism.

In the top ranks were three monks from the Drepung Monastery, the Sera Monastery and the Champa Ling Monastery respectively, the evaluation committee announced.

The monks all displayed a wide range of knowledge and are worth the Larampa Geshe, Drukhang Thubten Khedrup, head of the Tibet branch of the Buddhist Association of China, said in a review of their performances.

The annual the Larampa Geshe event was stopped in 1988, but resumed in 2005. A total of 74 Tibetan monks have obtained the degree in the past decade.
