Middle World Alliance is a unique environmental organization that believes the greatest threat to our planet is the fundamental misunderstanding that we are separate from nature. Led by Indigenous Tibetans who remember the vital wisdom of their Ancestors and adapt traditional knowledge to the times we live in. Their work is centered around urging a worldview of unity and reverence that will serve as a tool for repair and bring about a sustainable destiny.
The purpose of this project is planetary healing – to weave water’s sacredness back into life. 10 ceremonial stupas will be built by the village shamans, Elders, and youth along a traditional pilgrimage route from the Humla Valley to the shorelines of Lake Manasarovar in Tibet. This is the highest fresh water body of water in the world and is regarded as axis Mundi – halfway between Heaven and Earth.
Lake Manasarovar is regarded by the Ancestors as the Mother and source of all bodies of water on Earth.
This pilgrimage is an opportunity to pass down the knowledge to the youth who must remember and learn their role as guardians of the planet, taking responsibility for our living sacred world. They are currently at risk of losing the knowledge as modern technology and ideology threatens the traditional beliefs, rituals, language, culture, and wisdom.
