Not exactly the typical Thai temple, but if you are looking for some interesting art, and like skulls and fantastic scenes of death and destruction, the White Temple in Chiang Rai might be your ticket to enlightenment.
It’s the kind of thing Hieronymous Bosch might have created in 3-D– lavish references to the garden of earthly delights, evoking life’s fleeting nature.
For me the connection between art and spirituality is clear. There has to be some acknowledgment of our shadow side in order to free the light within.
Only by allowing the mind to travel to these obscure places can we free ourselves from being slaves to the darkness.
