my travels in northeastern India I had the good fortune of visiting
several Buddhist monasteries near Sikkhim and Bhutan. Known as
Chortens, these beautiful monasteries have eyes painted on them.
Devotees believe that it gives the monasteries divine vision and
powers of understanding. Traveling through the Himalayan mountains
one gets a feeling that the spirits of the monks come alive and
bless you with a sense of peace and contentment."
