Meditation, photo essay by Viet Van Tran
Bodh Gaya is a famous religious place of India, where Gautama Buddha is said to have obtained Enlightenment (pali: bodhi) under what became known as the Bodhi Tree. For Buddhists, Bodh Gaya is the most important of the main four pilgrimage sites related to the life of Gautama Buddha, the other three being Kushinagar, Lumbini, and Sarnath.
The series “Meditation” is belong to my project “BodhGaya”, which focuses on meditation statuses of humans, when the individuals look at their inner world to connect their body with their heart, and connect themselves as individuals with the universe. Buddhism, just like other religions like Christianity and Muslim, shares the common aims of promoting the good, and helping humans overcome sufferings, sorrowness, and hardships. Religion is significant in creating beliefs, and beliefs creates a tremendous power pushing humans to develop and complete themselves. (by Viet Van Tran)
