A devoted monk leaves his mark of faith, imprints of his footsteps, on the floor of a Tibetan temple.

70 year old monk Hua Chi, has been visiting the temple in the west of Tibet for nearly 20 years. Hua's regular worship started with no specific aim, but it has now turned into a process of self salvation. He hopes that his footprints on the temple's floor will help his soul during reincarnation. The temple dates back to 1301, and it is home to hundreds of Buddhist monks studying the scriptures.
