Tradition in a Tea Cup..Tibetan Tea..!

The ancient Tibetan Tea House culture has found its way through the long dreary winter journeys on the ancient Himalayan Silk Route. The much acquired flavor of traditional 'butter tea' which was a high calorie energizer for the mountain folks, still is very much a top favorite in Tibetan homes and Monasteries. 

However, as the days passed by, the ancient knowledge of Tibetan herbs n medicine soon became a tea blend trend for the present day tea culture from Tibet. These teas can be drunk at anytime of the day for creating better toning of the skin and a digestive balance of the body. 

Indian herbal tea leaves freshly hand picked in the mountain valleys of  Dharamsala and Palampur, are fragnant with the British afternoon sessions where people gathered for conversation. The famous Kangra tea today has many Tibetan tea brews for you to discover in Dharamsala India..

India Travel..the terrians of the Himalayas..!

From the time of Marcopolo and ancient chinese travelers, discovering new places, new cultures has been the passion and path of gaining insight into the knowledge of Earth. While, we look for glossy brochures, healing home stays, adventure and history chapters in our sightseeings, few can deny  that a holiday which has been designed according to the needs of the client are primarily in the focus of personal attention. They require detail study of the destination and how it can contribute to the vacation requirement of the customer. 

The 'Himalayas' in India in the foothills of the Dhauladhar range in Dharamsala, Shimla, Manali and Mussorrie, Nainital in the Garhwal Hills and even the remote areas of Kinnaur and Spiti Valley are truly an experience of a lifetime. The mountains are alive with the legends of Gods n Goddesses, they jingle with the travelling ballads of the shepherds and resound with the  chants of rotating prayer wheels..a wonderway way to be blessed..!

The Art of the Gods n Goddesses of India..Spirituality a Creation of Mankind..!

The art of India has fascinated many from days of old. The vision of man from centuries found expression in stone , brass, bronze, gold, silver and many more. As man created divinity , God manifested himself in the craft of wall carved frescos, statues and handmade embellishments!  

The might of the natural elements Fire, Water, Earth and Air was reincarnated and born to the beauty of Man, Art and Tradition,  translated itself in the cultural bonanza of various international hues and color.....However the creation of art knew not the boundaries of man made Nations, Caste and Creed.
It recognized only its Gods,  in shrines , shops, studios and the select study of  spirituality in various religions n art forms.

In India statue casting is as old as the civilization of the Buddha Bazaar discover the many moulds of this human creation......

Buddha Chat

The Buddha is an eternal figure not measured by years, by age or by the passing seasons. There are many Buddhas in our heart. One which can cry like a child in its acute sense of desire, it can weep when it loses an object or person of great love ! 
Life is a journey...a roaming ant, once in its curiosity came across a loose strand of hair of the Buddha. Surely it thought this must be the aging of mankind. It went to the Buddha and was surprised that even while he sat on his scanty grass mat, his body emaciated  with days of fasting, his eyes closed in deep trance,  there were still the heart beats of a free soul which could be heard.  !!
