Tibet Visit: 2006-6
2007-07-16 - Reflections picked from my wife's (Margit Pudas-Timonen) diary:

My trip to the original sources of Tibetan culture ”Roof of the World” is finally true: I am sitting on a hill top and enjoying in this darkening evening the magic scenery of the snow-covered Himalayas in the distance. I have quieted completely down in order grasp this special moment

I feel suddenly amused in my moment of happiness, as I recall the lyric of a rock song called “Metsämökin tonttu” (”Gnome of a wilderness cabin”). The lyric, written in 1974, starts something like this: ”I was once in Tibet , just a bit meditating, grandiose emotions are filling me with euphoria.…”

I wonder whether my exceptional deepness of thinking and related enlightenment of thoughts could be addressed to the famous Tibetan meditation?

After a while I feel to answer: ”Yes, buddhist staidness has already rubbed off on me. But still it bothers me: is this all it just some kind of hallusinative experience caused by oxygen deprivation at this high elevation (Lhasa 3600 meters above sea sevel!
