Photographer's Note

I saw an astounding world through this fire, which was coming from a censer inside a temple. To me, this image represents a world of ignorance, a world of suffering, and a world of truth.

The ignorance comes from people hurting themselves without knowing it, like the man on the side who is smoking. The suffering and truth I see here never appears on people's faces , yet both burn in their their hearts, as hot as this intense fire. It is this pain, the feeling of burning, that is the moment of truth!
