According to Buddha

Wallowing is a “bottomless pit” of pain, because we generate pain in response to pain. It’s bottomless because there’s no end to that. But this wallowing is not necessary. “When a well-taught noble disciple is afflicted by painful bodily feelings,” the Buddha says, “she will not worry nor grieve and lament, she will not beat her breast and weep, nor will she be distraught.” And thus she becomes one “who can withstand the bottomless pit and has gained a foothold in it.”

Elk Island National Park, along Highway 16 ~ Alberta ~ August 2015.

  1. Stunning.

  2. “Wake to these”? Were they visiting your camp. It must have been amazing. They are so beautiful…Cheers =)

  3. That first one is such a steamy stunner. Wow set Hedy!

    • the snorting breathing was also very cool…it was about 6am…and yes it was delightful to watch them…thanks kindly Patti! happy day to you ~ smiles hedy

  4. woooooow, stunning, Hedy. Lucky you to do that shots. Amazing!

  5. Really beautiful images, Heddy! And a perfect musical accompaniment… Here is a cover by one of my favorite artists… 🙂


  6. Great post. Very thought provoking. Fantastic images. I am dwelling on reconciling the thoughts about the bottomless pit and wallowing and these spectacular creatures breathing steam into the air.

    • thanks kindly Steven…yes the wallowing of the bison…always so magic for me to see…the sounds are also moving…compose a happy night! smiles ~ hedy

  7. I admired the first image, registered it as a particularly well-executed and -placed art installation. I read on, I see a few more images … whoops! back to the first image, reinterpret it, laugh at self. Clearly I need to get out of the city (any city) more often…

    • I love day trips and leaving the city life….happy day Penny maybe you’ll create a little adventure out this long weekend ~ smiles hedy 😀

  8. these animals are amazing. i’m so glad they still exist.

  9. the first picture is superb 🙂

    • Thanks kindly Joshi ☺️ I love the one with the four of them such sweet faces 😀 appreciate you saying compose a happy day ~ smiles hedy

  10. That first shot is just brilliant, one I wish I could have been behind the lens to see and admire ~ wonderful. Nothing quite as admirable to me than the buffalo – although such a sad history in North America the past couple hundred years. Great series of photos, perfect and fun – wish your weekend the same.

    • yes most ppl love that bison too…it was very cool couple of hours Randall…i still love the little ones and hearing them was so beautiful…it’s best to see them very early or late day…it was a cool 2 degrees this morning…after car camping i was so happy to see them…many smiles to you…compose a wonderful weekend!
