Looking and Seeing

Looking and Seeing is an introductory manual for Nalanda Miksang Contemplative Photography. Nalanda Miksang is a course of study that uses Shambhala Buddhist teachings to discover our already-existing connection with our world through photography.

A combination of a philosophical treatise and a playful exploration of our visual world, this first volume of three starts the journey. Through studying Looking and Seeing, Flash of Perception, Synchronization, we explore structured assignments to free the eyes and mind in photography.

Heart of Photography

Heart of Photography continues the practice of Nalanda Miksang Contemplative Photography from the first volume, Looking and Seeing. 

In this volume, we enter together into the deep heart teachings of the fields of perception, with topics like Ordinary/Personal World and People and Other Sentient Beings, and more. In the fields of perception, it is natural to connect deeply with our ordinary lives, only to find therein lies profound ordinary magic. Even if you haven't read the first volume, Heart of Photography is a powerful entry into the world of contemplative photography.
