View of prostrating pilgrims from top of Joklank Monastery
Tibetan Buddhist believe that the making of one hundred prostrations is the best step to acquire a vast number of merits and will bring a profound purification
Some devotes making a pilgrimage, repeatedly measure their length over the entire journey,they often wear "hand shoes" to protect their hands
This mode of prostration expresses the maximum devotion by exaggerating the difficulty of their journey
They can be seen all over Tibet

Indeed, the view of the people prostrating near the temple is strange for the western visitor. Amazing scene seen from above. Nice composition, interesting note.

nice the daily snapshot from the pilgrims of this Thibetian Monastery as prostrating pray to their Gods.
I like the well reportage shot with the lot of people to take place in this way praying for merits.

I am very impressed by this rich composition which captures superbly the daily life and atmosphere outside the monastery. The high and discreet point of view allowed you to include very much information, details, movement and interesting scenes. Depth and sharpness are great. The light varying very much between lit and shady parts has been managed very effectively, contrasts are smooth and pleasing. The mingling of public life with private causes is fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good day,

I love that through your photos i learn about the culture and habits of the people. I didn't knew that doing 100 prostrations will have a better life. Very interesting notes and beautiful composition.
PS Thanks for the clarification of favorite members.

Pilgrims and the universal prostrations at the holiest temple, thanks this brings Tibet to me. The looks of devoted pilgrims really show that they "have lived" and it' so well taken from this pov showing the activity below with immense feeling of calmness there. Really interesting, the detail you have is outstanding in fabulous colours and also beautiful, especially the contrast with the others in the scene. A well taken considering the circumstances but it's an interesting people shot at a stunning well known place of worship. Well done.

desde este alto punto de vista pudiste captar esta impresionante escena de los peregrinos postrándose delante del monasterio.
Es una imagen explícita que nos muestra con una gran claridad gráfica esta tradición de una cultura religiosa milenaria.
La comnposición es muy vital y dinámica, y la realización técnica es impecable.
Excelente trabajo, en el más puro espíritu de TrekEarth.

A perfect framing of everyday life.
Point of view with excellent image.

Not arguing with tradition, but you taken a marvelous picture here. People around the shrine gave life on the image, and the place looks "busy".
Favorable light enhanced colors.
Fine taken from a higher perspective.
Buen fin de semana,
