Contemplative Photography
Miksang is an art form centred on Contemplative Photography. Miksang is a Tibetan word that translates as “Good Eye” and is based on the Shambala and Dharma art teaching of the late meditation master, artist and scholoar Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche.According to the Miksang Institute for Contemplative Photography, miksang “is (at its most basic level) photography concerned with uncovering the truth of pure perception. We see something vivid and penetrating, and in that moment we can express our perception without making anything up – nothing added, nothing missing. Totally honest about what we see – straight shooting.

My weekly Monday Miksang Offering to you:
The seven Metals of Antiquity are: Gold (discovered 6000BC), Copper (4200BC), Silver (4000BC), Lead (3500BC), Tin (1750BC), Iron – first smelted from meteors (1500BC), and Mercury discovered around 750BC. Currently, there are 86 known metals but only 12 were known up until the end of the 17th century.
