Scotland - Dumfriesshire - Western man practising Tibetan-Buddhism.
A follower of Tibetan-Buddhism engages in Puja, or prayer, at the Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre in Eskdalemuir, Scotland. This young western man wears traditional Tibetan monk's clothes, is adorned with tattoos and has his head shaven. He is a western visitor, many of whom have had a troubled youth and are sometimes escaping a criminal past, who arrive in the Scottish wilderness for isolated Retreat periods, for short-term spiritual relaxation or to follow Tibetan teaching methods for discovering inner-peace, through prayer and meditation. This Tibetan Buddhist complex associated with the Kagyu school celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2007.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
