16th Karmapa Losar

16th Karmapa Febuary 8th in the year of the Earth Horse. On that day His Holiness wore a small crown symbolic of the illusionary nature of body, indeed another photograph taken in colour at the same time reveals him being transparent, showing the throne behind him also. Beyond me, I only took the photos. I'm publishing this now as we coming up to Losar (new year)and memories are streaming in.

Around Losar at Rumtek daily dances by the Lamas and monks take place more meaningful than entertaining though it is that, part of the ritual performances throughout the year.

Within the circle of revolving dancers.
