Waiting in line for blessings

People wait in line for blessings, with a view of the of the thangka in background, at the Paro Tsechu festival in Bhutan. The thangka is a large tapestry depicting a seated Guru Rinpoche surrounded by holy beings, the mere viewing of which is said to cleanse the viewer of sin. The thangka is unrolled before dawn and rolled up by morning.
