Tibetan Lama dances

Gyaltsap Rimpoche leading the Lama Dances, Losar time at Rumtek Monastery Sikkim. I am often asked to post some of my photo archive of those times which I'm happy to do not least for the memory it triggers and the profound impact the experiences have had in my life.

Standing within the revolving circle of masked and costumed monks to the trance inducing music from drums, jowlings, radungs, conch, thighbone trumpets does impact on participants and spectators alike.
