Mountain Vastness

Traveling through Tibet is like being in a gigantic akasa kasina. Everywhere you look you see space, vastness, infinity. The mind easily falls into a state of clean, peaceful emptiness. Maybe this is why the Tibetans had such a strong tradition of meditation. Here are a few of the pictures I took of the mountains. The first picture is of the breathtakingly awesome 8027 meter high Shishapangma (Sanskrit, Gosainath) viewed from across the beautiful kingfisher’s wing-blue lake at its foot.

Dear Andy,
Quite a few. But this blog is supposed to be about the Dhamma so I don’t want to post too many more.

Picturesque landscape that I hope will remain forever. With the migration and settlement of Han Chinese in occupied Tibet, I am afraid this postcard-perfect scenery will be cluttered and littered.
