Chahar Bagh School- The dome

Chahār Bāgh school (Madreseye Chahār Bāgh in Persian or مدرسه چهار باغ ), also known as Shah school, is a 16-17th century cultural complex in Isfahan, Iran.
The compound was built during Soltan Hossein, a Safavid king, to serve as a theological and clerical school to train those who were interested in such sciences.
The monumental portal from the main avenue of Shah Abbas leads directly into a domed octagonal vestibule.
The dome and the greater part of the walls are covered in bright yellow bricks which give a feeling of lightness. (From Wikipedia )

The activity of silence


"Bazarche No"/ Isfahan

In Isfahan there have been many old public traditional bathes, especially in grand bazaar. Some of them have been repaired and are being used for contemporary usages. The others have been closed and are unuseable. Here is a closed one("Garmabeh Shahzade-ha") where a vendor is using its entrance for selling his fruits.

Become like the sky


Become like the sky
Originally uploaded by Behzad Bagheri

...for the sky never rains anything but pure water.

Become like the sky. Become like the cloud and shed rain:
the spout rains, too, but it can't produce the rain.
The water in the spout is borrowed;
the water in the cloud and sea is original.
Your thought and reasoning resemble the spout;
inspiration and revelation are like the cloud and the sky.
The rain water engenders all the colors of the garden,
while the spout causes quarrels with your neighbors.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.
