Lo - Manthang Nepal
.............. a land where the soul of the main is still considered to be as real as the feet he walks on; a land to be “barren as a dead deer” but where beauty and happiness abound in spite of hardships. comments by Michel Peissel
Lo-Manthang's culture is
deep rooted in the religious sentiments of its people. The township abound
with many chhortens, mani-walls and monasteries. Prayer flags flutter
above all the houses-conveying mantras to all corners of the world. The
Lobas are exclusively Buddhists and conform to the Sakya-pa sect of
Tibetan Buddhism. Bon prevailed before Buddhism, which was later replaced
by Ningma Pa Sect (Dhakar-Kayu subsect) and subsequently by Sakya Pa Sect
(Sakyapa, Ngorpa subsects) of Buddhism.
