ladak monesrty lock

ladak monesrty lock In the bigger Tibetan monasteries only a small percentage of monks were really studying and persuing enlightenment. Many monks had worldly duties: extract taxes, being guards of Lamas, shrines, temple or monastery gates, accompany monastic caravans etc. Those monks needed weapons - but by their monk vows they were not allowed to have blades/ knifes/ swords. Such a iron key strung to a half to one meter leather string was a perfect weapon to crush assailants heads.
