Monkey Priests

Frozen Memories

The Priest The Priest

I sat experiencing a ritual being attended to by eight priests. There was chanting, drum beating, and horn blowing. Some devotees prostrated themselves before the idol, others sat and meditated. It took a while for me to get a face shot of this priest, the oldest of the bunch who was taking part in the chanting. I had to climb 365 steps in the pouring rain to reach the Swayambunath Stupa, a temple that serves both Buddhists and Hindus.

On my last trip to the US, I picked up an 85mm fixed focal length lens primarily to add sharpness to my photos especially under low light conditions. It was perfect for taking photos inside the Monkey Temple in Kathmandu. I tried my zoom lens but the pictures invariably came out blurry. My new lens enabled me to capture this photo and a few more that I really like.

Quantum Awareness

Are Buddhism and Quantum Mechanics saying the same thing in different languages? Let's finally bring the two together and have an enlightening discussion.
