Leh is a wonderful place. Here the legends connected the paths of Buddha and Christ. The Buddha passed through Leh to the north. Issa communicated with people here on the way from Tibet. Legends are kept secretly and carefully. They are difficult to hear because lamas know better than anyone else how to remain silent. Only with the help of simple speech – and not just language, but also inner understanding – can one get closer to their secrets. Nicholas Roerich.
