Description
In Tibet,you may find mani stone mounds and walls almost everywhere, in monasteries, beside villages, along paths and on mountains. Usually the universal mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, is inscribed on these smooth stone plates, pebbles and rocks. Images of deities and great adepts and sutra texts are also common themes. Tibetan people build these unique works of art to show their piety to their deities and the Buddha's teachings. Upon encountering a mani stone mound, Tibetan people circumambulate it clockwise as a prayer offering for health, peace, and protection.
Photo taken in Yushu, Qinghai China, it's the world largest mani mounds with 2.5 billion mani stones.
