The monk is in the deep state of meditation under the bodhi tree, protected by an anti-mosquito tent.
Last year i visited India, and of course Bodhgaya. Such a blissful place, made some prostrations, circumambulations, took many photos and offered fruits and flowers to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and all sentient beings in Mahabodhi temple.
So far away from home i was but yet I felt at home and when came back to Ljubljana i felt homesick and still do. I lost my heart in Ladakh so now I am wondering around heartless and longing to meet my heart again soon.
If you ever visit Ladakh, be there for annual Oracle Nagrang festival at Mangtro Monastery, held on the 14th and 15th days of the first month of the Tibetan calendar and see the Cham dance with Oracles, two wrathful protectors. For someone who just hear or watch the video doesn’t mean much but when you are there, you can actually see that oracles are indeed there, embodied in two monks, who were previously been in deep meditation for several months to prepare themselves for this event to preform the dance in Chams.
It is so auspicious.
Here on video you can see them on the left with ropes over the heads. So when they were ready to come, none of us was allowed to take any photos or videos. Of course there were couple of people filming in secret but Oracles knew where exactly they are so they turned and pointed a finger into them and guardians ran towards them right away.

Non-dual state of consciousness
The mode of being that is expressed by the Buddha is at the heart of reality. It’s not the notion we usually construct for ourselves. Our notion of being is dualistic. We think of it as the opposite of the notion of nonbeing. The reality of being that the Buddha tries to convey is not the opposite of nonbeing. He’s using language differently. When he says “self,” it’s not the opposite of anything. The Buddha is very aware that self is made of nonself elements. That is our true self.

If you are visiting Ljubljana, you have to go on a snack or bowl of ice cream on Zbilje. It’s wonderful.
