Photographer's Note

During the winter months, thousands of Buddhist pilgrims flock to Bodhgaya, the place where Siddartha achieved enlightenment and became the Buddha (lit - the Awakened One). In 2003, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, held the Kalachakra Initiation, there. In the days leading up to the Kalachakra, he visited many of the monasteries in the area. This shot is from Wat Thai - the main Thai temple in Bodhgaya.

Shot on a Canon EOS 300 (Rebel 2000), using on camera flash and print film. Various dust spots cloned out in PSP8, plus some levels, curves and USM. Sorry for the poor scan.
