The images and words in this work are the result of a voyage, a journey undertaken in the land of elephants, of gypsies and gurus, and of mountain monasteries.It was an inner journey that spanned Himalayan heights, travelled the dirt roads and plains of Delhi, the deserts and lakes of Rajasthan. The author believes that no matter what happens, no external entity is punishing us. The cosmos is God, is Buddha, is Rama, is Christ, is Allah, and it moves to bring us to a better place, always.
