EDITORS COMMENTS
Nestled in the serene outskirts of Bhaktapur, Nepal, lies the tranquil Kopan Monastery, a beacon of Buddhist wisdom and spiritual enlightenment. This image showcases one of the monastery's most intriguing and thought-provoking artworks - the Wheel of Life or Wheel of Samsara. The Wheel of Life is a traditional Tibetan thangka painting that symbolizes the cycle of birth, suffering, death, and rebirth. The vibrant, colorful wheel is adorned with various creatures representing different aspects of human existence, including a snake, rooster, pig, dragon, and others. Each creature represents a specific emotion or experience that humans encounter in their lives, such as desire, attachment, anger, and ignorance. The wheel's vertical orientation and intricate details add to its mesmerizing allure, drawing the viewer in to ponder the transient nature of life and the impermanence of worldly pleasures. The Wheel of Life is a powerful reminder of the Buddhist teachings of impermanence, suffering, and the path to enlightenment. This stunning photograph, captured by Godong/Robert Harding at WorldInPrint, offers a unique and intimate glimpse into the rich cultural heritage and spiritual practices of Bhaktapur, Nepal, and the Kopan Monastery. The absence of people in the image adds to the meditative atmosphere, allowing the viewer to contemplate the profound meaning behind the Wheel of Life in a quiet and introspective manner. Whether you're an avid traveler, a student of Buddhism, or simply someone seeking inspiration and reflection, this photograph of the Wheel of Life at Kopan Monastery is a must-see addition to your collection. Let the colors, creatures, and teachings of this ancient artifact transport you on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth.
