McLeod Ganj : On the Slopes of Himalayas
McLeod Ganj is a small mountain town settled at the foots of the Indian Himalayas. For decades it is known as the World Tibetan Buddhist center. It is a place where come Buddhists from around the World, and where tourists, artists and even celebrities spend days in search of inner purification. It is the inspiration for poets, writers, actors and all those who are looking for answers to the eternal questions of life and death, good, love and peace. Although this little town under the Himalayas has become world known primarily by the supreme Tibetan Buddhist leader, up to date it has retained it's natural glow and inner spiritual peace. Like the Dalai Lama - who lives the life of an ordinary Buddhist monk although He is aware of His own spiritual greatness and extreme importance - this place has preserved its natural charm. Whatever the temptations that carry modern world development, money and rapid way of life, it remained a place where anyone who is not fascinated by the achievements of modern civilizationcan feel relieved and come to relax. McLeod Ganj is an ideal place for anyone who wants to be there and do nothing, think nothing and say nothing. On 190 pages the book contains color art photographs that take you iside the beautiful environment of McLeod Ganj. The book make you feel like you are right there, on the streets and temples of the little town or on the hills of Himalayas.
