Mani Korlo

July / Juillet 2009
Mani Korlo is the tibetan name for the prayer wheel. Tibetan bouddhism spread a large part of the world. You can find it even in Mongolia, or Chengde (a city located some hundreds of kilometers in the north of Beijing). It even reached Japan and tourists will find a monastery in Koya-San, within a wonderfull cedar forest. This prayer wheel just comes from Beijing's Lama Temple.
Mani Korlo est le tibétain signifiant "moulin à prière". Le bouddhisme tibétain s'est répandu sans une grande partie du monde, jusqu'en Mongolie ou à Chengde (une ville à quelques centaines de kilomètres au nord de Pekin). Il a même atteint le Japon, et les touristes trouveront un monastère à Koya-San, dans une magnifique forêt de cèdres. Ce moulin à prières vient tout simplement de la lamasserie de Pekin.
