Om Mani Padme Hum, jewel in the lotus

What better place to rest, but in the sun, leaning on a massive mani stone.
Along the path, there were many mani walls, piles of pebbles 
with the mantra om mani padme hum engraved.
 The walls were sometimes quite long and 
had a different level, so the porters carrying heavy loads, 
could lean back and rest their baskets against the stones.
 Perfect for our rucksacks as well
