The deer and the Dharma wheel are found on many temples (Buddhist icons).

Johkang temple is the most important temple for most Tibetans. Origins are from the 7th century. The temple contains many rooms and many statues. People are circumambulating round the temple, and in front of the temple many people are prostrating (standing up and throwing yourself to the ground a number of times).

Om Mani Padme Hum to you Федик Олег Богданови…("Hail the jewel in the lotus"). This six syllable buddhist mantra was heard all the time by the people in the kora around Johkang temple and Potala Palace. Greetings, Mats.
