Photos from the 22nd July (celebration of Buddha’s first teachings)

As promised, Lama Namgay has taken some great shots of this auspicious day. Many Bhutanese pilgrims made the 3 hour trek to Phajoding to celebrate Buddha’s first teachings and on their arrival were met by the monks and offered Suja, the salty Yak butter tea served out of an aluminium pot – a great way to get everyone into the spirit of the festivities. The monks and the Phajoding horses helped to carry up supplies for the big day too – a great effort !
