The weeks' work by the Tibetan monks-

We all know the particular political oppression that Tibet has been under for the last several decades... I thought it was a fitting photo for this theme because despite what has happened in their country the Tibetan monks and people respond with peace and compassion towards everyone. Political tyranny does not have to breed violence.

The mandala represents peace

    How could anyone argue against peace and comassion for all, only the insane...I have seen these monks fashon these mandalas up close, their artistry is without equal, they are gentel souls...their opressor is the very apitomy of evil as are other opressors, sadly it is the way of the human being, or atlest a percentage of them...being a Buddhist, I endeavor to adhere to the teachings of Siddhartha, the Buddha, it has helped me overcome much and has set me on the right path...What a great colection of images...Voted..
