In Ladakh, there are a still deep roots to shamanistic religions pre-dating Buddhism, and that have intertwined with Buddhism over time. This woman was an oracle in a village outside Leh, providing traditional medicinal advice as well as spiritual advice, all while in a deep trance. We spent the afternoon with her & had a chance to both receive some advice from her and take some pictures before (here) and during her trance. Some oracles are very senior (i.e., those that provide services for His Holiness the Dalai Lama), while others such as this woman are very much oriented towards their own villages. Leh, India, 6 July 2016.
