The 14th Dalai Lama's (tA la'i bla ma) procession making its way from the Potala to the summer palace, Norbu Lingka (nor bu gling ka). The Dalai Lama's sedan chair can be seen in the middle of the procession with ritual umbrellas to its right. Crowds of onlookers line the route, and the Potala is visible in the background.
