Having spent many years visiting and staying in Ladakh, attending the Dalai Lama’s teachings and studying Buddhism as a self styled pilgrim I would like to share that knowledge with others who are interested in experiencing a pure Buddhist culture, sometimes referred to as the Buddhist Pure Land. Ladakh is a high altitude land under passes as the name describes its extreme landscape. Buddhist monasteries straddle its high mountain peaks. As a fellow pilgrim on the journey I would like to introduce you to various monasteries and to the Lamas who are in residence for short meditations in the varied landscapes of this high altitude domain. I invite you to look at my profile and at the itineraries that are offered and I hope you will find resonance with one of the journeys that will afford you the opportunity to leave the stress of the world at large and enter into a world that is sure to open your heart and mind.
