The Barkor circuit in Lhasa is a circumam -bulation route around the buildings surrounding the Jokhang Temple. It is an amazing site to watch the Pilgrams who come from all over the country walk around it almost endlessly. Take note of all the diffent regional influences in the clothes. At the start of the video, you will see a couple of people who are prostrating themselves around the circuit which earns you even more merit. Personally, seeing how some of the older people manage to carry themselves around, I think they are the ones who deserve the most merit
I probably spent more time editing this video than any of the others. I kept coming back to it for months on end. I finally ended up cutting about 4 minutes off the final edit and being more overt about cutting it to the beat of the music which is something I don;t generally do.
