Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to provide an ethnographic depiction of a monastic community of exiled Tibetan nationals currently residing near Kathmandu, Nepal. During Spring 2003, I spent one of four months in Nepal under the School for International Training at Lhundrup Choeling monastery as its first non-Asian resident. While there, I learned first-hand about the monks' experiences of ascetic discipline, urban life, and displacement using participant-observation and formal interviews to gather data. This portrayal is framed within an analysis of the socio-historical construction of Tibetan identity in relation to the 'West' and the culture of global capitalism. In describing the intersubjective relationship between this community and its new cultural milieu, anthropological insights concerning the unbounded nature of culture and post colonial cultural reification are demonstrated. The result is a reflexive examination of circulation and exchange in the interpretation and creation of Tibetan Buddhism by Westerners, and of Western culture by the Tibetan Buddhist community under investigation.
