    Chapter 4 focuses on the organization of the Tibetan monastery, how the community was formed and how monastic official and administrative roles were divided. Informed by the monastic guidelines, this chapter considers the internal hierarchy and social stratification within the monastery and argues that the monastic institution was two-tiered, in which religious authority and managerial power were often carefully kept separated.
