The ancient beauty of Buddhism in the Tibetan culture spilling out into the world shares something important in common with the new science of user centered design – a recursive process leading to the benefit of others.

Communicating about a vibrant and esoteric religious culture reveals increasingly deep levels of understanding, yet this information becomes easier to approach and understand with design iterations that interact with the viewer.
