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:

Our task is to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, the whole of nature and its beauty” – Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Each of these is a beautiful piece of art. I find the green window strangely three dimensional, my brain knows that it is through the porthole but I still feel it is this side of it!
