My Vision of Peace
This photograph was taken in Kathmandu, Nepal near the famous Boudnath Stupa. For me these novice monks represent the embodiment of purity and possibility in our often harsh and ugly world. The word shanti literally translates as "peace" In Buddhist practice it primarily refers to inner peace. The aim is to cultivate a tranquil mind even when our surroundings are anything but tranquil. Peace is finding refuge in the world as it is, not as we wish it was.

The juxtaposition of old traditions, new buildings, the innocent camaraderie of novice monks trailing their more serious mentors is wonderful. I'd love to know what they're talking about.
