Along a Himalayan Trail
Participate in contemplative Himalayan traditions beginning with the mantra with
which Buddhist communities start the day. Hear a yak herder playing a wooden flute
against a background of fluttering prayer flags in the morning light. Includes the
meditative sounds of singing bowls, and footage of the holy stupas of Kathmandu:
Boudhanath and Swayambhunath. The classic Tibetan prayer "Om Mani Padme Hum" is sung
by a Tibetan/Tsumba (a resident of the hidden Tsum Valley in Nepal).
