Picture Muktinath nun at the Sound Chorten

There are many little stupas or chortens at Muktinath. This one no doubt is very special. If you lean with your elbows on the wooden bar in the opening of this chorten and you put your head down to the bottom, you can hear the sound of a water operated prayer wheel. Others hear the muscial sound of  Dakinis or the goddess Naga. It is even said that any deaf person can get rid of deafness with the help of this musical sound.

This musical sound of water in the South
Is an offering of water to the Three Roots,
By the kings of the nagas, Ga-wa and Jok-po
The Clear Mirror
