'Letter To My Mum', Video, 5.22 mins

Letter to My Mum is a digital video made for my MA Fine Art Show at Norwich University of Arts in 2007, prior to my ordination as a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan Kagyu tradition.

Reflecting on gender stereotyping and the futility of seeking permanent happiness from wordly activities, it was made in response to my mother asking me why I wanted to ordain as a Buddhist nun.
