the review:
The Tibetans.
Steve Lehman.
A pilgrim prostrates himself along the Lingkor, a sacred route that surrounds the old city of Lhasa. The man will cover a distance of several kilometres through his prostration, a form of prayer and devotion believed to build compassion and positive karma.
Elderly Tibetans turn prayer wheels and recite the mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum
(The Jewel in the Lotus), while circling their local monastery. The circle is a pervasive symbol in Tibet, representing the interconnectedness of all living things.
