Buddhist ritual

An old Buddhist woman who turn these characteristics wheels prayer around a temple. On these wheels are written the words of an ancient mantra that believers recite every day. This particular way of prayer is considered to be stronger than a normal one.

For a Buddhist Monk, the debate is a crucial aspect of his own curriculum. It's used to sharpen their critical skills and test their ability to explain and debate various teachings. The monks train periodically on debating and is an effective means of expanding the mind, increasing mental sharpness, developing analytical capacity, and gaining internal clarity.

Old Square

Old Manali is a small mountain village nearby the Himalaya in India. In this peaceful town, the life pass by slow and quietly. This square was close to my guesthouse and a lot of people was used to gather here daily. The old women were chatting or weaving, the men were caring about the animals and the kids playing volleyball or other games all together.
