On the 26th of May, during the one week drubchen leading up to the anniversary of the Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana on May 31st, a giant thangka made of parachute fabric was displayed.
This building is seven stories tall. We call it “The Seven-Story Building” togsa dunpa. The apparatus on top was built with this thangka in mind.
The wind made it look like the mast of a ship. The great ship of Lord Buddha.
