Boudhanath Stupa

Boudhanath Stupa

Rhett Morton, July 2011

Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. I walked past this magnificent structure every morning on my way to hospital during my medical elective. The image captures the serene atmosphere that people meditate under. What it doesn't show is the ground level below, where hundreds of people circle the monument, making the prayer wheels turn to the hum of mantra.
