Buddha Posters

I didn't have a model today, but I wanted to shoot, so I took selections from the Dhammapada, and illustrated them with photographs. Enjoy:


Joy

With a quiet mind,
come into that empty house; your heart,
and feel the joy of the way
beyond the world.



Look Within

Look within --
the rising and the falling.
What happiness!
How sweet to be free!



Awaken

By your own efforts,
waken yourself, watch yourself,
and live joyfully.



Shine

However young,
the seeker who sets out upon the way
shines bright over the world.

Like the moon,
come out from behind the clouds!
Shine.



One

Beyond the sorrow of hell,
Beyond the great joy of heaven,
By virtue of his purity,

He has come to the end of the way.

All that he had to do, he has done.

And now he is One.

- The Dhammapada
