Monk in Contemplation

Monk in Contemplation. Japan. A monk of the Buddhist temple Hasedera, Sakurai City, Nara Prefecture, contemplates the beauty of nature during autumn, when the leaves of Momiji trees turn red. Moments of contemplation like this are a common factor in all those meditative disciplines and activities which detach from the hectic modern daily life, slow down and meet the “pace of nature”.
