Dalai Lama's Sermon Can't Hold This Little Monk's Attention (PHOTO)

Paying attention can be tough, whether you're struggling to listen to a boring lecturer in class, sitting through a relative's story that you've heard at least ten times, or are in the middle of a sermon given by the Dalai Lama, like this young monk.

In this AP photo, a novice Tibetan monk gestures to the camera as he listens to the spiritual leader the Dalai Lama deliver the Jangchup Lamrim teachings at the Sera Monastery in Bylakuppe, 135 miles west of Bangalore, India, on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013. The ten-day teachings began Dec. 25.
