Tell me, O Swan, your ancient tale.
From what land do you come, O Swan? to what shore will you fly?
Where would you take your rest, O Swan, and what do you seek?

Even this morning, O Swan, awake, arise, follow me!
There is a land where no doubt nor sorrow have rule: where the terror of Death is no more.
There the woods of spring are a-bloom, and the fragrant scent “He is I” is borne on the wind:
There the bee of the heart is deeply immersed, and desires no other joy.

— Kabir – One Hundred Poems of Kabir (XII – Translated by Rabindranath Tagore)

Tell me, O Swan, your ancient tale

    • Hi Namita,
      The stones are carved. There were a lot of such stones in Ladakh, very often piled close to monasteries or holy places. They have the Buddhist mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum” engraved.
      Thanks a lot for commenting. 🙂
