A Tibetan Ritual.

Kathmandu - Nepal.

Cette femme - une réfugiée Tibétaine - vient d’enrouler en offrande un collier d’œillets d’Inde sur ces statues de Bouddha. Sa main qui vient de se tourner vers le sol en un geste de paix à l’intention du monde, remonte lentement, aussi lentement et délicatement qu’une fumée d’encens.Elle va porter ensuite cette main au front et incliner la tête en signe de respect.

This woman - a Tibetan refugee - has just wrapped up a necklace of French marigold on these Buddha statues. Her hand, which has just turned to the ground in a gesture of peace to the world, slowly, as slowly and delicately as a smoke on incense rises up. She will then carry this hand to the forehead and tilt her head in a sign of respect.
