Photographer's Note

This is one row of the many, many wooden prayer wheels (about a thousand?) that surround the Tibetan Labrang monastery in Xiahe. Every day, all the wheels are turned by many devoted Tibetan and Mongolian Buddhists. The monastery is one of the few important, big Gelugpa (yellow hat sect) monasteries outside Tibet, inhabiting 3000 monks.
