This morning we had our Puja ceremony, the spiritual blessing performed by a Lama, a ritual that all who attempt Everest partake in before stepping foot into the Khumbu Icefall. It was a beautiful scene under a dramatic sky where climbers of varying cultures and religions stood together in solidarity, in honour of the mountain, all asking for safe passage and safe return.
