Tibet Lhasa Jokhang Temple Our main man is now handed all sorts of items which he tosses into the fire to the chants and chiming of the monk's bells.

Note the two large basins containing yellow liquid. This is yak butter and is used everywhere throughout the temples, to burn as a special offering. You can tell the most important places by how slippery the floor is with yak butter.

This temple contains the most revered image in Tibet and going through there with the throngs of avid devotees was - actually I haven't digested this experience yet.
