A raging river swollen with the first gush of the monsoon. A barren landscape absolutely devoid of vegetation crumbling mountains and snow-capped peaks and a mule train making it's way slowly up the treacherous road. Nomads and their mule trains have traversed pathways such as these for more than a thousand years now for this isolated and barren terrain along the river Satluj and Spiti in Himachal Pradesh has acted as the conduit between the ancient lands of India and Tibet. It is said that a thousand years ago under the patronage of dividend King a young Monk helped in the founding of the number of Buddhist monasteries along this bleak and desolate region. Monasteries which acted as treasure troves of artistic and spiritual expression. Monasteries that have stood the onslaught of time. Dankar, Lalum, Naco and the most renowned of them all the 1,000 year old babel built in 996 A. D. Babel celebrated it's 1,000th birthday with Kala Chakra ceremony performed by his holiness the Dalai Lama surrounded by his retinue of monks and in front of the devoted eyes of his followers the spiritual leaders of the Tibetan Buddhists invoked the gods for a world free of violence for peace in our troubled times.
