In 1967, Matthieu Ricard settled in the Himalayas and became a Buddhist monk. Since 1989 he has been the French interpreter of the Dalai Lama. Author and photographer, he has already published several books, all the royalties from which are donated to humanitarian projects in Asia. His latest book, Un voyage immobile, takes us to the heart of the retreat he makes every year for months on end in the hermitage of Pema Ösel Ling, on the heights of Kathmandu. There he sits and meditates amidst the beautiful scenery of the green valleys of Nepal and the Himalayan range. The book brings together a hundred photographs taken by Matthieu Ricard near the hermitage. A journey that is both visual and spiritual and that perfectly illustrates quotes selected by the author.
