Descendants of Buddha

Processed with VSCO with acg preset

This photograph was taken during the Sikkim Tour in 2016 at a Buddhist Monastery not far from the hustle of the crowded city of Gangtok while the monks were returning after their morning prayer. They exchanged smiles, greeted the tourists who were present there and spent some time for the customary memoir selfies before leaving.

Nirvana, is the spiritual goal of Buddhism. My favorite among the last year’s photos, taken during the Sikkim Tour at the Institute of Tibetology in Gangtok. We reached there early in the morning before the morning prayers began, I saw this monk going to the prayer room and was ready to capture the moment. But much later, did I understand the so many levels of undertones the picture contained. I believe in many ways, in spite of all our involvement, it is some form of creative energy that makes art perfect.  Some genius artist working in His own mysterious ways. Here, this was my tryst with Him. Heres to His creativity!
