The Zen Diary

Since August 2013 David Gabriel Fischer has been living at Zen Temple Ryumonji in Weiterswiller, France. From the first day on he has been keeping a photo diary named The Zen Diary. The idea of the project is to take a photo a day that gives a glimpse into the day-to-day monastic life of the temple.  Photography, for him, has become a form of meditation to practice every day: The posture of the body as it breathes naturally, the objects of meditation that one finds in one's surroundings, and finally the moment, the light, free of discursive thinking (and the dreaded "monkey mind"), silence, presence…click. If readers are interested in the photographs or simply want to leave a note, feel free to contact Fischer at Gassho.
