I went to India for the wedding of a friend in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, about 100kms west from Pondichery. It was great!
Here are some images, which I divided in 3 galleries: Shops ‘n stands, People, In the streets… I still have to finish the editing! So there will be more to come…

Name Your (My) Dream Assignment : Compassion and Wisdom for a better World

March 3rd, 2009

Hi!

I just uploaded my dream assignment on NYD this morning… here  it goes:

“My dream assignment would be to meet with some great Tibetan masters still living and interview them about compassion and wisdom, the two pillars of buddhism.

My dream assignment would be to meet with some great Tibetan masters still living and interview them about compassion and wisdom, the two pillars of buddhism.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche said “The compassion and wisdom aspect of Bodhicitta* [...] need to be cultivated more or less simultaneously. They are like the two wings of a bird; if you cultivate one without the other, you’ll be like a bird with only one wing, going round in circles!”
This is not only about buddhism, it’s about humanity and living in a better world.
I want to meet these persons to and interview them about utility of compassion and wisdom; how can one develop them, even if not a buddhist; what “material” effects benefits with the practice of compassion and wisdom?
Compassion is been measured by scientific on the person of Yongue Mingyur Rinpoche and also on French monk Matthieu Ricard (Dalai Lama’s french translator), I would like to meet with them and help spread the idea of compassion and wisdom can help everyone to be better, for them and for the world we’re living in.
I dream of interviewing and photograph some of these rare persons before they go away, in India, Nepal, Bhutan and even in the USA.
I dream of a multimedia show and a photobook about this subject.
I dream of a better world and I believe in the power of images!

(* the will to help all sentient beings)”
