Na čaj v Ani Gompa visoko na tibetanski planoti

Na vsakem potovanju naletimo na kakšen kraj, ki je res nekaj posebnega. Pa ne zato, ker ima najlepše znamenitosti – bolj je važna tista posebna energija, ki jo začutiš na vsakem koraku. In nekaj takega se je zgodilo, ko smo se visoko med oblaki na nadmorski višini 4000 metrov podali na obisk ženskega samostana Ani Gompa nedaleč stran od mesteca Tagong. Če bi se ozirali le na tistih nekaj stavkov v popotnih vodičih, bi pričakovali le zaprašeno lepo vasico na koncu ceste, nekaj lepih budističnih templjev, lepih razgledov in to je to. A Ani Gompa je veliko več kot pa le droben zapis v svetovnih vodičih. Je kraj z neko posebno energijo, ki jo lahko začutiš praktično na vsakem koraku. Je kraj z neverjetno prijaznimi ljudmi, s katerimi bi z veseljem pokramljali, izmenjali besede, pa nam jezikovni prepad tega enostavno ni omogočal. In obisk ženskega samostana je bil prav gotovo eden izmed vrhuncev našega trimesečnega potovanja po Aziji. Ja, izginjajo taki kraji oziroma čedalje težje jih je najti. 🙁

On every trip we find a place that is really something special. But not because it has the most beautiful sights or attractions – more important is the energy that you can feel on every corner. And something like that happened, when we were high among the clouds at an altitude of 4000 meters, visiting Ani Gompa not far from the small town of Tagong.  According to couple of sentences in all travel guidebooks, Ani Gompa is a small dusty village at the end of the road, with some great Buddhist temples and great views. But we know now that Ani Gompa is much more than that. It is a place with a special energy that you can feel practically at every step. It is a place with incredibly friendly people, with whom we would gladly chat, but a language gap simply did not allow us. And a visit to the Ani Gompa monastery  was certainly one of the highlights of our three-month trip around Asia. But unfortunately places like this are disappearing and it’s more and more difficult to find them. 🙁
