Thank You by KmyGraphic  Byodoin Temple - Kyoto by AndySerrano   

For the fave on Byodoin Temple - Kyoto. This Buddhist temple in Kyoto, dates back to In 1052.  Basically, it's a 1000 year old structure.  I love the contrast. I rode two subway trains and took a short bus ride to get there.  Buddhism and Shintoism exist not only side-by-side in Japan, people see no real conflict between the religions.  It's a stark contrast whereas in the Christian/Judeo/Islamic traditions, they kill each other over minor differences in dogma.

Japan girl by KmyGraphic  Thank you for faving  Itsukushima Torii by AndySerrano

Itsukushima Torii. I took a video and a photographs of the Itsukushima Torii on Miajima Island at 5:30 in the morning when no one else was on the beach.  Ironically, across the bay is Hiroshima where the atomic bomb destroyed the city and hundreds of thousands of school children.  Miajima Island is considered to not only be holy, but it is considered a god in itself. The entire island is considered to be a Shinto shrine and no birth or death is allowed on the island.

:icon1stbutterflykiss::iconthxfav2::iconthxfav3::iconthxfav4: Monk Taking Photograph of Beauty.  The point of contemplative photography is to help people see, help people to have direct experience rather than just thinking experience or inferential experience about the world. The core of it is how you make that shift from thinking about things to seeing. If you can’t see clearly it’s going to be very hard to make good images. We look at people and we see friends and enemies. And again that’s our thoughts about the people or our conception about the people, but they’re really not friends or enemies. That’s just something that we overlay on the situation, so it’s not seeing them clearly.

Thank you by KmyGraphic for the fave on Shrine and Lantern. This reminds us to listen to the sound of your own heartbeat, the colors of the world around you, the smell of the scents wafting in the air, and the peace these things bring to you at the cost of merely stopping for a moment to pay attention.

Thanks For Faving Two by AudraMBlackburnsArt   Birds Enjoying Japanese Garden.  Until the 20th century, Japanese gardens were seldom open to the public. They were built by the ruling elite to create a mood appropriate to worship and contemplation.  Most of today's famous gardens owe much of their development to the influence of Zen Buddhism. Japan is a group of islands surrounded by oceans and seas. From ancient times, the Japanese people had an affinity for the sea. Water as a design element in the garden is crucial. One of the most popular styles of garden is called chisen, in which a pond or lake occupies the most significant portion of the garden. A Japanese garden helps place the visitor in his or her center.
