Thartsang Tso is a sacred lake near Labrang where people make offerings on auspicious dates. They raise prayer flags and throw papers inscribed with the windhorse to stir the wind that brings good fortune. They also throw treasure vases into the lake to propitiate its deity to bring wealth, luck and success. In the spring of 2006, Norlha’s core team went to the lake to participate in the laptse and wish for Norlha’s success. Eleven years later, we look back on these times and feel our prayers have been answered.
