In 1419, Jamchen Choje Sakya Yeshe established the Sera Monastery, a monastic university that provides religious education to monks from age 8 up to 70. An integral part of the monks' studies is Buddhist debate. Every afternoon, students gather in an open courtyard to debate the scriptures, using specific gestures (e.g., a downward clap, pull back, push forward) that contain profound meanings.
