Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

old temples in bumthang

Bumthang is known for it's ancient temples.  One of the oldest Buddhist temples in the country is located here as well.  I did a little loop of some of the more visited temples in the area and below are the pictures of the day. 

The one picture of me with chain mail is a 500-year-old suit of metal chain made by Pema Lingpa. It is considered auspicious to circumambulate the temple three times with the chain draped over the back and shoulders. I didn't find it too heavy, but I did think it looked super beautiful when spread fully open.
