কঙ্কালের নৃত্য

চোখের সামনে কঙ্কাল নাচতে দেখলে যে কারো ভয় পাবার কথা। এমন একটা ব্যাপার যে কারো সংস্কৃতি হতে পারে, কল্পনা করেছেন কেউ?

The Skeleton dance is a sacred Tibetan dance ritual found in Himalayan Buddhist lineages. It is intended to reflect the transient nature of things, including states of mind and the body itself. The monk pictured in the above photo, taken in 1925, seems to be performing the dance known as Durdak Garcham, “Dance of the Lords of the Cemetery.” The dance celebrates the liberation that comes from acceptance of our impermanence.
