Hey Scally, Well it was Lord Guru Rinpoche who came in Tiger form to nest there to subdue the Evil Spirit which has been rampaging the Paro Valley.

Bodha, You are very lucky to meet His Holliness Dalai Lama and get blessing from him. I have been wanting to meet him but i can't, may be some day i could meet him.

Another beautiful capture ~ but Eagle's nest seems more appropriate than Tiger's nest. Great work. ciao nick

Haha Nick Weall Tiger Nest Seems bit Awakard but As far Buddhism Belief, It was dated centuries agao that Lord Guru Rinpoche who brough Buddhism to Bhutan came in Tiger form to Subdue the Evil Spirit which has been rampaging the Paro Valley. Thus the Name Tiger Nest
