Kathmandu, in central Nepal, is ringed by giant Buddhist monuments that go back to the time of the Buddha himself. On the trail through from the city to the high peaks everything goes by foot. The only wheel to be seen is the prayer wheel.
Just below Mount Everest is a Buddhist monastery of 40 monks. Their life, 14,000 ft up in the Himalayas, is modelled on that in the now vanished monasteries of Tibet. Through their meditation they strive for a state that makes the very silence come alive.

The Camera of Philip Bonham-Carter and the Songs of Jake Thackray The Yorkshire Dales
' The rain is on the mountainside, The beast is in the silent meadow, The North countryside is patiently waiting again,
Blackbird dumb in the juniper
Lapwing shivers in the dripping thicket
Down in the stoney faced town One door opens'
Who better than JAKE THACKRAY to celebrate the qualities of this unique countryside. This he does in song and picture with wry comment upon the character of his fellow Yorkshiremen.
