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.
