I love how unexpected many of these photos are - not what you would imagine a monk doing! The first image is priceless!

This has just reminded me that I should be doing my meditation and not be sitting in front of my screen ;-)
So I shall away and be back later.

Thomas Merton, the monk and author of the "Seven Story Mountain" did a book of photographs in the late seventies: "Geography of Holiness"

Elizabeth,
Thank you for the glimpses of Rato Khyongla and his world. Living now in Mexico, it's like cool water in the desert.
