Gandan Monastery / biggest Buddha Central Asia / 3 prayers for me

The entire day was one big happening and a blessed experience. I seriously enjoyed every minute of it. Many good vibes! 
The Buddha we saw is the biggest in Central Asia!!! 

Wishing tree story: there where originally 7 trees. 6 got cut and the 7th survived because it was bleeding. :(( People touch the tree and whisper their wishes in the cracks/ chinks. They also touch the tree and cracks a lot.

The last one remaining ….
 
Do as the Mongolians do!
    
23 meters tall ….
   
Turn me so that my prayer can raise to the sky ….
 
Monestary 
We went to spent a few minutes watching a morning prayer session and I could see monks praying, this was a new experience as well. After a few minutes we continued our journey. Once we spent some time walking around and explored everything we went to see a Lama. He was reading my future based on numbers (1-100) I gave him and prayers he did. After he said his first two sentences about me I knew he knows what he was talking about :)). And no, I will not disclose. I was also offered to raise questions for him to check and I can only tell you: I am all fine and looking forward to my future. Yeah!!!

At the end of the session the lama gave me a piece of paper that contained three prayers for me. We went back inside and payed to get a service for me the next morning. I had to leave my name for the monks to address it when they did my part which was around 1 1/2 hours.  

Modern times … makes it easier to pay for the prayers.
   

“Birgit make sure you spend some time thinking about your prayers while you are in the train!”

“Sure I promise.”
