Village children tie woolen threads around the Latse Shokshang to stabilize it and the arrows. The Shokshang is the central pillar of the Latse. This Tibetan word can be directly translated as ‘life-wood’.
The Lama and his students place wooden blocks with scriptures written on them at the base of the Latse. They also tie some to the Shokshang facing outwards towards the four directions (north, south, east, west).
