UK - Eskdalemuir - Western nun practising Tibetan-Buddhism.
A nun practicing Tibetan-Buddhism meditates in silence at a shrine. Seen in almost silhouette, the young woman engages in Puja, or prayer, at the Kagyu Samye Ling Buddhist retreat centre in Eskdalemuir, Scotland. She 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 celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2007.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
