City of Perth at night

My life is getting pretty much mechanized. From home to work, and work to home. At least, weekends are better. I meet friends over soccer and then go for booze. Other than that, nothing much is happening. Not because I don’t have enough time, I have lots of free time, but I have lost all those interest of urban life style, visiting nightclub, going to beach, travelling etc.

Probably I am missing home badly. Probably I am missing serene maize field at the backyard of my home. Or I may be missing Druk 11000 with Shakam Ezay, and those mundane and meaningless chitchats in the corner of a local bar. Being a foreigner, its hard to find peace and happiness, no matter what car you drive or how much money you mint. At the end, it’s up to an individual to decide what constitutes their happiness. For me, I have set a clear goal. Few more years of laboring to gain lil financial independence, and then I am off to pursue my goal (which can’t be disclosed here).

Any ways, in midst of low feelings, and high intensity work, I managed to take some photos.  Please enjoy below.

And for my expedition home, I am bringing an extra 32 GB memory for my baby Canon.  You only know the beauty and distinctive sacredness of your country when you are in some foreign land.

His Eminence Sungtrul Rinpoche in Perth

Bhutan's culture and tradition shines in Australia. For two days, I felt like I was in Bhutan. I would like to rejoice and make a wish that His Eminence Sungtrul Rinpoche returns to Perth in future. Apart from precious Dharma reminders, lessons, transmissions and all, it was a perfect opportunity to reflect on who we are, and where we root from. Enjoy some photos.

Lake Monger

These images are shot at Lake Monger. I like this place a lot. It is just a couple minutes drive from my place. Many Bhutanese children studies at Lake Monger School. And the name- Monger makes me nostalgic. Many Bhutanese share a common sense of belongingness to this place, which offers several facilities like Soccer arena, walking and biking footpath, bird watching, basketball court, and a nice park. This Saturday, Lake Monger will be blessed along with many Bhutanese when Eminence Sungtruel Rinpoche will preside religious discourse and wang( Blessing). I am excited and looking forward to pay my respects and deepen devotion to great masters, who are as rare as precious jewel, especially in foreign land. I will try to capture some moments of Rinpoche if organisers allow to photograph. Otherwise, I am more than happy to sit and concentrate on precious teachings and sharpen my mind towards the reminder and preciousness of guru's blessing. Until then, enjoy some of my novice landscape shots.
