Waving Nuns

Photo Description

White and pure as these silk scarves ‘khadars’ 

So are our thoughts and prayers for your safe passage, until we meet again 

‘Tashi Delek’ Good wishes

 In the olden days and to this day, in some parts of Bhutan, the tradition to wish and pray for the ones journeying far is done by the ones staying behind, mostly women, by way of waving the khadars, till the last person disappears from the horizon. 

This artwork installation is a tribute to the Nuns of Bhutan, who continue to play a significant role in the spiritual well being of our country
