Photographer's Note

Dans les cieux,
l'enfant moine mditait.
Les toiles ses pieds, le soleil devant lui.
Il avait quitt la terre en gravissant la montagne.
Il s'tait rapproch des sages.
Il avait beaucoup appris des anciens.
On lui avait racont la jalousie et la cupidit.
On lui avait dit les ravages de l'argent et la faiblesse des hommes.
Alors l'enfant moine avait lev son corps pour purifier son me.

Sur la montagne de kyaiktiyo, je n'ai pas vu le rocher d'or.
Mais j'ai vu la richesse des sages.

****

In the skies, the child monk meditated.
Stars with its feet, sun in front of him.
He had left the ground by climbing the mountain.
He had approached the wise ones.
He had learned much from old.
They had told him the jealousy and cupidity, the devastations of the money and the weakness of the men.
Then the child monk had raised his body to purify his heart.

On the mountain of kyaiktiyo, I did not see the gold rock. But I saw the richness of the wise ones
