Tibet’s Magical Views

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
W.B. Yeats

Tibet held a light to it. A magical light that evoked and captivated my senses. I know I may sound like I am exaggerating but give me a second..

Once in a while as people, we see or touch or sense things or people or places that are so different to our known knowns. These things or people or places have a spark and newness that awakens us, it almost feels magical. In May, I traveled to Tibet-I touched and felt a sort of magic whilst prancing the streets of Lhasa and Shigatse in Tibet.

In this post, I simply wanted to stuff your eyes with the wonder of Tibet’s magic. Her charitable views: white blue clouds. Her vibrant oranges, reds, crimsons seen in fluttering prayer flags across alleyways. The charming and heartwarming faces of Tibetan children and elders. Her dreamy images, beautiful, blue glamouring night skies. I hope you enjoy the magical moments that I experienced through this apple crunch.

Walking towards Potala palace, you’re immediately confronted by men and women who are in a mode of worshipful prayer. To read my reflections on Spirituality in Tibet, click here. The video below captures a few moments that truly fascinated me. Groups of people falling prostrate on the ground: chanting  mantras, in unabashed worship.
