The above picture depicts a monk performing light offerings, which is a common and daily practice of monks or nuns in the Tibetan Buddhism tradition. There is no proof or evidence in which the above place was in fact in Jokang Lhasa. Also, the tibetan traditon practitioner do not meditate with fire as all outer phenomenon are all but an illusion as taught by the Lord Buddha, thus, practioner there will never rely on it. It could be in Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, India or other parts of the world. Conclusion: Light Offerings To the Triple Gems (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha)

the presentation of many small candles represents the many religions of the world; the next image of the large fire represents how together, they all end up believing in God despite the different religions LauraMilwaukee6
Please notice that the flames of ALL the candles are pointing towards the centre. Logically this is not possible. So this is to show that all outer phenomenon are illusions. KirilIsrael5
Please note that it IS possible for the candles to all point towards the centre because they could simply have two doors open at each end of the room, therefore the wind would come from two different directions forcing the candles to point in different directions (towards the centre).

candles pointing inward
it may be that the heat is greater towards the center and so the air rises faster there drawing the outer flames inward. or not. :)
