North Fife Photographs Lama Dance

Today I am posting more photos of Lama Dancing as has been requested. These are a few examples of an archive being scanned in high res, much too large to publish on this Blog. The work is being carried out at The Steeple Arts Studios, Newburgh North Fife. A exhibition of these and other photographs is projected. The dances will be taking place right now at Rumtek Monastery, Sikkim India.

A young Monk about to join the dance.

Within the circle of dancing monks rituals take place in accordance with the Karma Kagyu Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, to the fascination of the spectators.
