Alexandra says that one day her son went to see Shurgan lama. During the session the lama said to him that the wheel in his car had a problem. Indeed, when her son went out to check his car, everything turned out as it had predicted by the lama. About traditional medicine. A stick of maple tree is good to subdue a pain in the joints or in the breast. A saiga antelope’s horn is good for a tumor or a headache. She points out that people should not receive religious objects, such as rosaries, without repaying the giver. In the end, Alexandra shows how to tie a rosary.
