71. Migration

The Black Necked Crane migrates to Bhutan each year and sits above their marshland destination in the Black Mountains. Monks pray for the safe return of the birds they revere as Bodisatva -- beings which having achieved their own enlightenment and seek to help others on their path. According to tradition, the cranes will, in the Buddhist manner, circle the monastery three times on arrival in a clockwise direction as a mark of their devotion before finally landing in the center of the marsh. The cranes are thought to possess a wisdom that comes only with great age and many past lives.
I saw them a few years ago, bouncing and cawing in the cold morning. Dancing occurs often and is commonly associated with courtship, however, it is believed to relieve tension, and strengthen the pairs bond.
