  13. I am glad i didnt vote says

    It’s a big Karmey Kom (not very big but a medium sized) that requires 2 two dongray to burn the oil. It cannot be inside a small glass case as it would have been difficult to get a view from the top or slightly above. So this must be a picture taken from a butter lamp burning 1. Inside a glass house as the flame seem to be consistent but slightly moved because of slightly bigger space in the glass house or 2. In a enclosed room where a photographer’s presence and movement have made the flame unstable. The picture must be taken in the evening as OL won’t go during the day time for the circumambulation or a walk. Not even on weekend day time as he would make a trip elsewhere or spent time with family or go for archery.Also the reflection on the oil potrays a clear picture of daylight. And I hope Dinesh didn’t see you taking the picture at the JDWM Chorten or did Linda Wangmo accompainied you to Sombeykha …..ha ha just a silly deduction for fun. May be next time OL should give more pic for deduction so that it becomes more fun.
