High above the grounds, amongst the ivory clouds, over the thunderhead lies an ancient backwoods in the solitude of the wilderness con-centering the mighty Himalayas. The legend says that the landscape was created by the creator himself summoning the most privileged architect in his directorate. The fire of faith was illuminated by the gods over the vista creating the abode surrounded by perpetual spirituality in all directions. Over the period of time, the abode became a dwelling place of the devotees creating an emblematic tradition and heritage that ran deep inside the sanctified niche.
The culture mellowed through a history of religious legacies. It has been evolving to this day but it still looks as if the time was frozen in an eternal struggle with the change. A religious sanctuary on the top of the world. The enlightened himself dwelled this land sermonizing tranquility, conciliation, acquiescence & complacency. Where the living goddesses rules the land empowering faith amongst the plebeians. Where the temples & shrines are more in number than are the devotees, where the animals are esteemed as being the next to the deity. Where the temples are the first sight seen when dwelling outside. Blessed by the ancient gods, effigies are as common as the devotees themselves. Where the sun rises harmonizing with the mystifying sound of the morning bell, the meditative vibes fused with the divine sunrays is believed to take one to the gateway between the heaven and the earth. The hymn is believed to be an elixir to all the sufferings, torment and worldly perturbation. It's a call to the savior of the place to take care of its realm.
Never was I ever contemplating on such profound antecedents. Honestly, I have never before truly appreciated the annals of my ancestors and the pristine land they bestowed upon us. The truth today might deviate from what I have conceived above, nevertheless, even if the legend matches a quarter of what I believe, I would still say I am the luckiest person to have such a legacy behind. Today, I have been living in a wonderful country with incredible people and I feel proud to be part of it carrying something of my own.
