Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind ( Prayer)

3,280m (10,761 ft) above sea level in ZhongDian (also known as Shangrila), Yunnan in China, everyday life involves praying, chanting, walking in unison around a rotating gold-plated religious tower . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..

Just wonder what is their state of mind when they pray?

  1. I know that at that altitude you suffer from lack of oxygen and have headaches and dizziness. I have been even higher in Bolivia and it was painful, you even get hallucinations.

    • Hi Liz, I always wonder why those people in or near Tibet used to rotate wheels or towers as they pray. I suppose in unison with the rotation, they may repeat their prayers. I hope I can pray as short as simple as you do – I tend to pray repeatedly.

  2. So you have been to Shangri-La? Compliments. What was your state of mind? Apart from feeling dizzy by the altitude.
