    "The Kalmyks of Kyrgyzstan live primarily in the Karakol region of eastern Kyrgyzstan"

    Great documentary, thanks @Shoshin! Sad to learn that Buddhism was persecuted there during the Stalin era, but the new temples they have built since are gorgeous. Rebirth can have its upsides ;)

    May their prayer wheels never be stilled again <3
