Sadness Day
Charcoal on Paper

This inscription can be found painted on a rock along the auspicious kora walk around His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama's temple in Dharamshala, India.

It is most likely commemorating a loved one who was lost in the genocide of the Tibetan people, or who perhaps did not survive the hard journey through the Himalayas. This journey often has casualties, but many continue to risk their lives in order to escape the oppression of the Chinese government, and to find freedom in exile.
