Druk #545, Bhutan 2007
It was an auspicious day, and the Jambay Lhakhan was filled with devotees visit here to participate the ceremony and give prayers. Many of them are elderly, who spend all day here to pray. Among a few younger visitors here, I saw a woman who had an eye, clear and mysterious. She was 16 years old, a young wife, accompanied with her husband, visit here on the auspicious day.

I hear echoes of chanting of monks and many devotees from the sanctuary.

Here in a small side shrine, a young wife takes her time in a personal prayer.

A reflection of the light from the courtyard creeps into the shrine, and the room is filled with soft atmosphere.

The chants of the sanctuary slowly drift away, and a deep silence governs the shrine.
