after many many days of cold snow and rains... the guys were very happy to see the sun emerge... we made the most of it by travelling all around manali that day and even going to the hot springs at Mani Karan... we passed kasol on the way, which was another gorgeous place to stay and was littered with foreigners and tourists...more on Kasol coming up soon !

at Kamapa Monastery... was so serene and beautiful inside.. it was mid afternoon when we reached there and the morning session of prayers was over... the monks had retired into their rooms and evry chanting ceaselessly... and the Buddha was left to himself... and us :)
this was the simple and beautiful door to he temple at the Kamapa Monastery near Dharamshala... the gorgeous warm Buddhist colors - red, yellow, green, blue and pure white - made for increadible and eye catching sights all over Dharamshala, especially in places that had spiritual connections... whether it were temple doors or mani stones on streets...
