'roof of the world' -
a shaggy haired yak ponders
splendor of green leaves

Buddhist chants -
how the sun warms them
smiling hearts of Tibet

Fossil remains of the domestic yak and its wild ancestor date back to the Pleistocene period. Over the past 10 000 years or so, the yak developed on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, extending over about 2.5 million sq km and often called the roof of the world

Let us always meet each other with smiles, for the smile is the beginning of love
