We shared our final day in Nepal visiting temples and enjoying our hosts and each member of our group for one more precious time together.

We were lead up the steep, stone pilgrim stairway by our mascot, Luna, to this section of the temple.
|The Great Tunderbolt.|
The brass-plated dorje is a symbol of the power of
enlightenment and destroys ignorance. It
indicates male power, while the healing bell
represents the female power.
This monument hints at celestial perfection with its gleaming, gilded spire and white washed dome. The four faces of Buddha staring out in all directions
represent unity and the insight of the Buddha. The white ball on the very top
is the earth. The prayer flags have written mantras on them carrying requests to the heavens above for peace and love for all of us on earth.
