Title: Tsa Tsas
Location: Thimphu, Bhutan, Asia
Description: Tsa Tsas are as pictured above and made from clay and sometimes mixed with the ashes of loved ones as a memorial. As most Buddhist cremate their dead, and as one of the main tenants of Buddhism is the impermanence of life, these relics are a remind of both those who have passed and that nothing lasts forever.
In the Bonus Image below, you can see how they are set on the ledge of a chorten, a holy site. They can also be found along the road near mountain passes or anything place that has special reverence.
I’m excited to be heading to Central America to teach photography in November and December of 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse.
I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries. Click here or email me for more details.
