This man is doing 'the kora' by prostration. He slides his whole body onto the ground, stretches out, marks off where his fingers were. That will be the strating point of the next prostration. He gets up, puts his hands together over his head, then on his heart and he kneels and prostrate again. He would go round the temple a few times during the days. They could use this way to go further. Some pilgrims have been seen on roads heading for Lhasa from wherever they live and it could take months before they reach their destination.
