Milarepa Festival Day

Watching and meeting the Drepung Monks at the Milarepa Center was a special treat and blessing. The monks are visiting from India and traveling around the country on a World Peace Tour.  They enchanted us with Tibetan Buddhist ritual chanting and dance- it was powerful.

We found some blackberries as we walked back to the car, and we left plenty for the bears too!
