Udumwara in sanskrit means 'an auspicious flower from heaven', which is said to blossom once every 3,000 years. The appearance of Udumwara blossoms is a sign of the arrival of the Holy King who turns the wheel, rectifying the Dharma in the world.
Volume 8 of the Buddhist scripture 'Huilin Phonetics and Interpretation' writes: 'The Udumwara flower is the product of propitious and supernatural phenomena; it is a celestial flower and does not exist in the mundane world. If a Tathagata or the King of the Golden Wheel appears in the human world, this flower will appear due to his great virtue and blessings.
Really appreciate YANA's professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized - more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. - Simon Liu, Hong Kong
