ABSTRACT
The article reports on the journey of Buddhists to a sacred place in Leh, India as an act of religious devotion. It states that Buddhist pilgrims are going to this remote stronghold of the Tibetan culture that had been selected by the 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled God-King for a rare spiritual event. It also notes that the town of Leh has become an open-air monastery for a religious ceremony where Dalai Lama wore a red robe and ocher rubbed shoulder with laymen, zealously spinning the prayer wheels that would magnify a hundredfold the effect of incantations written upon them.
