Autumn in Lhoka by hima jomo at Indigo Perfumery
September’s warm sun casts over expansive fields of barley.
The gentle whispers of barley sway with the air, thick with incense smoke, carrying with it chants offered up in celebration of the harvest.
Highland barley, under the gaze of the god of nature, germinates, grows, heads, fills, plumps, and matures. The prosperity of the plateau snow line is documented on these golden bodies.
On ancient maps, Tibet is depicted as a woman’s body, with LHOKA on the chest as the birthplace of Tibetan culture, known as the soul of Tibet. Here, the highland barley is full of pure and warm sunshine on the plateau. In the late summer and early autumn, the seeds have passed their own reincarnation and dedicated themselves to the plateau’s civilization with a humble and selfless attitude.
Autumn is the harvest season after a year of hard work.
At this time, Tibetans celebrate and appreciate this gift from nature with incense, singing and dancing.
If you hold the highland barley in your hand, you will smell its fragrance, feel the shadowless wind, the fresh rain, in the distant sky, and under the fiery light.
It is warm and tough, composed yet eager.
This is the temperature that belongs to the late autumn in the Himalayas. It is like a hug from nature, making you feel comfort and hope in the city.
It is also the eternal antithesis of nature and human wisdom.
