Dharamshala: A Meditative World in the Himalayas 


In the midst of the mountains in the Kangra District lies the city of Dharamshala which the Great Dalai Lama likes to call home. Translating as the 'home of religion' and a significant Buddhist population, this hill-station has a huge flourish of culture in its monasteries, artwork and handicrafts. 

The Norbulingka Institute trains several Tibetans-in-exile several varied art-forms and trains them to excel in several crafts. In my photographs, I have attempted to capture the reconnaissance of the human spirit with old art forms.
