Scotland - Dumfriesshire - Western man practising Tibetan-Buddhism.
Surrounded by books and holy relics, a monk 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, prays in a caravan adapted to become a woodland home in the woodland near the Centre. 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
