“When I roam alone in the intermediate states, the loved ones of this world can no longer help me. When images of emptiness arise, when the five radiant lights of pristine cognition dawn, may I recognise them as my own, without awe and without terror. And as I arrive at every place that I think of, may the bewildering fear and terror, generated by my negative past actions, not arise.”
Elephant is a book of portraits done all over the world in the last twenty years combined with abstract light images and a Tibetan prayer for protection. Inspired by The Great Liberation by Hearing in the Intermediate States also known as The Tibetan Book of the Dead.
