A Buddhist Prayer

Buddhist Prayer Lanterns

Here is another image from my 2008 Korea trip series. It is an image about colour, patterns and repetition represented by an array of paper prayer lanterns at a Buddhist temple on the northeast coast of South Korea.

Every faith community has its own unique way of offering prayers to their god(s) and each is deeply rooted in their cultural backgrounds. Some prayers are offered freely and personally, while others are offered by some kind of proxy.  Whichever way is chosen, every prayer has a very personal meaning to the person offering the prayer.
