Eight chortens (PiP)

Eight chortens (PiP)
A row of 8 different chortens (Dewa Shedpai Chorten Gyed) can be seen at many temples- they symbolize the eight major events in the life of the Buddha. These chortens are at Gom Kora, the inset photo is from Ranjung, a newly built monastery in Trashigang district.

Danke, Chris! In Bhutan wird immer wieder neu angemalt:-) Das gilt auch für die ganzen Fresken in den Tempeln, die einfach neu gemalt werden, was hierzulande Kunsthistoriker entsetzen würde...

A lovely image (and PiP). The Buddhist imagery may be mysterious, but it certainly also is beautiful.

Many thanks, George! It really is too complicated but a joy to look at and that's enough for us westerners;-)

Gracias, Luz! Their buildings and artworks are beautiful. They are all traditional because crafts are taught in the old style so you cannot tell whether something is new or hundreds of years old.

Merci, Isabelle! I found the explanation in one of my guide books- Buddhism is so complicated that we cannot begin to understand it!

Haha, tell that to the monks- they might even think it good karma;-) After all Buddhists do have a practical streak...
