Prayer Over Kathmandu
Full color Dharma Wheel artist's print
Available framed or unframed
The sky is a paradox of simplicity. It hangs above, and around, each of us. We walk through the same color blue in our homes that carries clouds and wind at the highest altitudes, no matter where we live -- from Brooklyn to Kathmandu. Wind carries the color and prayers.
Among the population of Nepal, a friend thrives. He has, at once, met me and never met me. We exchange letters, written in each other's language, creating prayers for each other's families and communities. A shared promise, after receiving the other's prayer, we each walk to a private quiet area, he in the mountains and me in a local forest, to read each prayer out loud into the sky.
Once each month, my prayer hangs above Kathmandu for the time it takes to read and finish. Words and wishes walk along The Noble Eightfold Path in two places at once.
