ENVISIONING ECSTACY


Tibet House Gallery
Photographs and art work accomplished during The 33rd Kalachakra Initiations by
His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama in Leh, Ladakh from July 3-14, 2014

'Solo dog sleeps between sun and mountain while thousands rush by'
(two verses from Chapter 24 of Nagarjuna’s "Fundamental Wisdom.”)


What arises dependently
Is said to be empty.
That, being a dependent designation,
Is itself the middle way.

'Dreamers sleep deeply in temple shadows'

Since there is nothing
Which is not dependent,
There is nothing
Which is not empty.
