During the last years of Khyentse Rinpoche's life, Ricard traveled with him through India, Bhutan, Tibet, and Nepal, in the process creating a remarkable portrait of a great spiritual leader of our time. These Type-R prints are mounted on hand-molded Tibetan paper with an archival backing board. They bear colophon labels stamped with the seal of the Shechen Monasteries, and are accompanied by the limited-edition book Journey to Enlightenment. The edition size for this photograph has been amended to a printing of only 24 and 8 artist's proofs.
