Contemplative weekend!

Contemplation is profound thinking about something.

And according to Andy Karr, Contemplative photography is a method for seeing and photographing the world in fresh ways, to reveal richness and beauty that is normally hidden from view.

How do I see death…

I stick to what is written in Bhagwat Geeta:

******

He is never born, and he never dies
He is in Eternity: he is evermore
Never-born and Eternal
Beyond times gone or to come
He does not die when the body dies…

*****

Invisible before birth are all beings and after death invisible again. They are seen between two unseens, why in this truth find sorrow?

Yesterday I had a wonderful hike on a near by mountain during which I took some nice photographs. I was planning to share them yesterday itself but after coming home heard a sad news. We knew this day would come but didn’t expect it so early.

I know well there is no comfort for this pain of parting. The wound always remains, but one learns to bear the pain, and learns to thank God for what he gave. For the beautiful memories of the past, and the yet more beautiful hope for the future ~Max Muller
