Savior of the high passes

During one of my trips in the high Himalayas, I came upon the sticker of Lord Buddha on the windscreen of the vehicle in which I was traveling and wanted to capture a moment in time which would give me the essence of the culture of Buddhism in the mountains. Buddhism is widely practiced in the Himalayas with many monasteries every where. Buddha protects the mountains and the passes.
