Tibetan monks dedicate their lives to prayer and serving others.
Part of the Buddhist faith, their leader is the Dalai Lama, with a strong emphasis on reincarnation.
It is promoted that ‘beings’ are born on different realms of existence, notably animal realm, human realm, godly realm and ghost realm.
The realms are said to be dependent on karma committed in previous lives.
