That one is free from fear and is blissful.
When we visited the great temple site of Angkor Wat in Cambodia several years ago this beautiful nun was offering incense sticks to worshippers. Nuns keep all the Buddhist holy sites at temples fresh and instruct foreigners how to make offerings with incense. We happened to arrive on the day the country was celebrating freedom from Pol Pot and many Cambodians were making offerings and seeking religious ceremonies for family members they lost in the genocide. The nuns have taken over these responsibilities because almost all the monks were wiped out in the mass murders.
We were greatly surprised by the warmth and natural cheerfulness of the Cambodian people and were happy to join in the celebrations on this day. Capturing the photo of this generous nun and the mother and child behind her was a highlight of my experience.
