On Feb.16, the "netizens experience Losar in Tibet" organized by the Tibet.cn completed its ten-day trip in the Tibet Autonomous Region, leaving the snow-white wonderland for Beijing.
"Quietly, they come to the plateau,
Quietly, they wave goodbye to the cloud in the sky…"
The ten-day trip in Tibet concludes in the first beam of sunlight on the Potala Palace. The group members including netizens and journalists set off their way home amid a sweet-sad flashback of short memories.
Their experience of celebrating the Chinese Spring festival and Tibetan Losar together on the plateau might stay on with their devout love toward the world roof.
Together they took goods and blessings to visit the young and old Tibetans in welfare houses, and paid homage to Buddha and other deities in temples.
They followed the Tibetan people by burning mulberry leaves, hanging up sutra streamers, turning the prayer wheels, and chanting the six-syllable prayer，Om mani padme hum.
For them, it is a special dream in Tibet of Chinese and Tibetan new years. On the way to the airport, the group members exchanged their thoughts of the trip, the Tibetan customs of celebrating the new year, the unique religious culture and diverse and harmonious characteristics of each other.
The unwillingness-to-leave sentiment shines as the scorching Tibetan sun. They set off with unforgettable feelings and appreciation toward the organizer, Tibet.cn.
Some expressed their expectations on another similar activity; some talked about their hope of maintaining the newly-built friendship; and still some others nodded or smiled, getting a new outlook on life, the world, and values after a spiritual cleansing by the Tibetan plateau.
The "netizens experience Losar in Tibet" commenced their trip in Beijing on Feb. 7, 2013. After the ten-day visit in Lhasa and Lokha Prefecture, they came back home on Feb. 16.
