During the public rehearsal of an annual festival of sacred dances at Shechen Monastery in Nepal, the dancers do not wear masks or costumes but add multicolored scarves to their monastic dress. Here, they practice a dance in honor of sixteen spiritual ‘heroes' called 'gings' in the monastery courtyard. (2012)

Thought of the week

The fleeting pleasures of this world are like the canopies of clouds that appear one moment in the sky and are gone the next. People immerse themselves in these enjoyments, claiming that they are necessary for their livelihood and indispensable for their survival. And yet the life of humankind is no more than a flash of lightning
