Around, around, around the stupa

Around, around, around the Stupa

Once around the Stupa—

“I was 10,” he said, “The second son had to be a monk”

Twice around the Stupa—

“Om mani padme hun,” he told us, “A mantra of kindness, compassion, and love”

Three times around the Stupa—

“My name is Laminbholan,” she said, “I am in grade 10″

Four times around the Stupa- ” Dorje is used for prayer,” she explained, “Here, a picture”

Around, around, around the Stupa

Until they say, “The rain is coming—now”
