The Prayer Beads

The Prayer Beads

During a break from a wonderful festival in Bumtang, I took 30 minutes or so and walked behind the main temple to see more of the area. I found several sets of kids playing in that area, and also came across a older man who was circumambulating the temple several times. On his second time around I stopped him and asked to take a picture of his prayer beads. What really captured my attention was his hands, which look as if they have had a hard life, one filled with lots of manual labor and very little creature comforts. What a life.
