I was doing groceries in a small dutch village where my parents live... when putting some bananas in my basket I turned around and see there a Tibetan Monk... I have never seen a Monk in this small Village! I was very surprised!
I greated him in Tibetan and we started talking... I found out that his father comes from the same Tibetan town where I live!!!
How amazing!! How interresting that I got to meet him...
The Medicine Buddah Mandala- The Buddah of Healing. This mandala helps promote peace, calm, and tranquility in the heart. The happiness that results is transmitted to others, benefiting all beings. #Tibetantradition#Tibetanmonks#Ancientart#AHC
Another image from my upcoming book "BEYOND THE DARKNESS". With the permission of the Abbott, I spent an early morning in his Tibetan Monastery in northern Sichuan. The monks were having their morning yak tea and were going to start their prayers. I remember how amazing the scene was: the smell of incense, the drone of the chanting by the monks, and the sounds of the bells and drums. It took me to an old world that few people have ever experienced. I was so blessed to have seen it. #bookproject#selfpublish#blackandwhitephoto#buddhism#tibetanmonks#backintime#traditionallife#tibetanmonastery
