Photo Album 8

Return to Visual Media

The PBPF Photo Albums (numbered 1 through 9) were originally organized by the long-time resident of Wisdom’s Goldenrod, Carol DeAntoni. This was done several years after PB’s death, possibly with input from PB’s direct students Anthony and Ella May Damiani. Some albums have themes, such as Photo Album 3, which is primarily pictures of PB.

This Buddhist monument has a direct symbolism. 4 lower terraces are sculptured with friezes depicting mankind's early activities and are heavily ornamented. The upper ones show the Buddha teaching the way to release. Then there are 3 upper galleries, devoid of ornament, crowned with stupas enclosing Buddhas, symbolising the lack of outward props in the higher stages of the path. And finally at the summit a large pain stupa representing the void which is nameless and formless. I felt a good atmosphere up here, and was quite happy resting on on the lotus away from the 'maddening throngs.'"
