The Paradox of Life..

PARADOX

A few borrowed words from the 14th Dalai Lama……I found these very meaningful. They should fill in some gaps in your life, the way they did for me…..

A million years of creation

I took this picture, early morning from across the Tungabhadra river. The air was cold and I could still hear the crickets and the frogs from along the water edge.

The water was cold all around, and I couldn’t help but wonder what a million years of creation would have been like !

Shadows of the famed civilization of the Vijaynagara Empire that once stood on the banks of this famous river could still be seen in the fading morning light, and I wish it would come back all over again….

Patience of the Past

When I look at this carving, it just reminds me of the patience man may have had to painstakingly carved this beautiful sculpture. What could it have taken ! Weeks, Maybe months, maybe even years. All done hundreds of years ago without any modern tools or machinery. An artwork of mankind that would probably last a few hundred of years more.

I took this picture with one intention in mind. To remind myself of the determination of a civilization that survived for hundreds of years..
