Tibet – where you can touch the sky… Episode 2

Tibet: Rongphu and Everest

Over 40 km away from Lhasa, capital of Tibet, there is the Ganden Monastery, another jewel of Tibetan architecture, built high up on a hill that is gradually being revealed as one climbs. This monastery is the seat of the Gelugpa order whose leader is the Dalai Lama and this is why it was shelled by the artillery in 1959 and 1965. Here we could find the remains of Tsongkhapa, founder of the Gelugpa order and great reformer of Tibet. In 1965, when the Red Guards conquered and destroyed the monastery, the chörten with the remains of Tsonghapa was broken, and, to the general surprise, his body was perfectly preserved as if he had lived, although he had been dead for 550 years. Despite the miracle, the Red Guards destroyed his body, only a few fragments of the skull being saved by a brave monk. Today, these fragments are resting in Tsongkhapa’s new chörten.

Tibet trip

It is a legendary place, where, for hundreds of years, man has merged with nature following the Buddhist religion. For centuries, people have not died, but reincarnated in successive lives. For centuries, faith was stronger than the economic or military force. But this land, regarded by many as the mythical Shangri-La, was crushed under the Chinese tank tracks over half a century ago. A whole culture was beheaded, a whole people was punished. But the roots were strong, so the signs of revival begin to sprout. This land is Tibet.

    Mumbai Escape at Ramada Powai Hotel

    Mumbai is one of the most interesting cities of the billion+ nation of India. It does not have the imperial history of Delhi, it does not have the princely elegance of Jaipur or Udaipur, it does not have the holly spirit of Varanasi and you cannot find any monument which can rival Taj Mahal of […]
