“And again, Subhuti, suppose a woman or a man were to renounce all their belongings as many times as there are grains of sand in the river Ganges ; and suppose that someone else, after taking from this discourse on dharma but one stanza of four lines.”
(Buddha, Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)
This lady was sitting on a ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras), she was there thinking, looking at people, enjoying the begining of a Sunday afternoon spent nearby the holy waters.
I didn’t speak to her nevertheless I felt that those words of wisdom by the Buddha could be an appropriate quote for this picture.
