Kailas darsan

You could see Kailas from The New School today! As the hosts of the ISSRNC conference on Mountains and Sacred Landscapes, India China Institute got to devote a plenary session to our Kailash project, and so seven of us yatris shared some of our experiences and takeaways from last year's trek/pilgrimage
Also on our panel was the director of the ICIMOD Kailash Sacred Landscape initiative, who dazzled us with this (too) charming map of the area, and then with a visualization of the various components of the initiative in the form of a mandala. It was nice to reconnect with people, remember our times together and learn where their thinking has taken them since. The audience got a nice view of our project, too.
