'Meditation at Naubise.'

	A holy man sits meditating in a small hilltop shrine at Naubise in the valley of the Mahesh Khola, just west of the Kathmandu Valley. A rack with butter lamps encloses a collection of Shiva tridents and several small reliefs of gods that have received an abundant coating of red powder, just as the forehead of the holy man.
