Dorje Pakmo - Hats

Hats

The distinctive black hat of the Samding Dorje Phagmo, which can be seen in both ancient and modern mural paintings and in photographs of the later reincarnations, is very similar to that of the Karmapa and is linked to the dakinis and Khandro Yeshe Tshogyal in particular.

Famous quotes containing the word hats:

    There is the rich quarter, with its houses of pink and white, and
    its crumbling, leafy terraces.
    There is the poorer quarter, its homes a deep blue.
    There is the market, where men are selling hats and swatting flies
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    There are several natural phenomena which I shall have to have explained to me before I can keep on going as a resident member of the human race. One is the metamorphosis which hats and suits undergo exactly one week after their purchase, whereby they are changed from smart, intensely becoming articles of apparel into something children use when they want to “dress up like daddy.”
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    My consolation is to think of the women I have known, now that there is no longer such thing as elegance. But how can people who contemplate these horrible creatures under their hats covered in pigeon-houses or gardens, how can they understand the charm of seeing Madame Swann wearing a simple mauve cap or a small hat surmounted by a straight iris?
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
