Sample text

My room was plunged in darkness. I no longer saw the elephants -but I continued to hear the music. After listening attentively, I recognized religious tunes. The trapas were playing on the terrace of the temple. Who were they serenading in the night ? . Whatever might come of it, I wished to risk an interview with the gomchen. I sent a request that he would see me and the next day, accompanied by my boy, I returned to the monastery. A primitive staircase led to the lama's apartment situated above the assembly hall.

These plain details my boy could easily translate and I myself could follow a certain amount of his conversation. However, I did not risk mentioning the demons, said by popular opinion to be his servants.

Bound, in a reversed posture, to a triangle pointing downward, she was compelled to accept the caresses inflicted upon her by a green devil with teeth like a saw and a monkey's tail. In the background, other demons, variously coloured, were seen running forward to take their turn.
