The Daily Chore

A young nun at Yarding Gar Monastery carries a heavy log on her back. The logs will be chopped into smaller pieces for cooking and keeping warm during the cold evening. Yarding Monastery is home to around 40,000 nuns and since the controlled measures on Sertar, it is now the biggest monastery in the world.
