Himalayan Spirit

Sunrise in the Himalayas begins amid thousands of prayer flags fluttering in the morning breeze. These dancing prayer flags form a tangible link between the Himalayas and Buddhism and reveal the magic spirit of the "the roof of the world." A 7th Century statue of Buddha carved from a single black stone looks down on young monks whose laser-like focus helps them perfect their delicate Tibetan calligraphy. Like generations before him, a patient stonecutter chisels the traditional Tibetan prayer, "Om Mani Padme Hum" for another section of a "Mani" wall. We see candles lit in remembrance of loved ones, and the meditation comes to a close with the rising of a full moon over the sacred Boudhanath stupa.
