Prayer Wheels



These are a few of hundreds of prayer wheels found in the Jokhang Temple, in Lhasa, Tibet where I visited last week. Each day, hundreds of Tibetens circumambulate the temple several times, carrying malas and hand held prayer wheels. There is a feeling of deep spirituality in Tibet, an everyday way of living.

Please tell us about your journey when the time is right. We have missed you.

What an adventure- the Prayer Wheels turning, the sites, sounds, people!

You left us with the image of Transition to study while you were away- little did we know you were in Transition in Tibet!

What a wonderful journey to have visited Tibet. I enjoy the beautiful and symbolism of the Tibetan prayer wheel and especially the prayer flags. We have some draped above our front window and everyday I look out at them waving in the breeze sending out prayers on the wings of the wind.

I would say "welcome home" but "home is where the heart is" as the saying goes. I know you understand what I am trying to say here. :)
