About Reincarnation

“All the world continues coming and going in reincarnation.”

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the holy scripture and the final Guru of the Sikhs)


This picture was shot a few minutes before sunset from a crest of a hill in Leh, the capital of Ladakh in the Himalayan hills.

I like that the lines from the trees in the background find an echo on the lines made by the sheet steel on the roof.

Everything is unified in shades of green as if it meant to tell us that everything is the same, everything rebirth in another form or a new embodiment.

The body might be different, the soul is the same...


"I died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as a plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was man.

Why should I fear?

When was I less by dying?

(Jalalu 'D-Din Rumi, Sufi poet)
