"Buddhist Perspective on Literature" is a book about the connection between Buddhism and literature. The essence of Buddhism is compassion, or rather tapping into the unlimited resources of mind’s inner wealth, the full development of human potential. Art and literature are also often understood as tools for bringing deep meaning to human existence, enriching it with qualities and values more profound than mindless consumption. Can these two unlikely friends, Buddhism and literature, form an effective ally in bringing timeless dimensions to our everyday lives?
The challenge was to create cover reflecting the topic of literature and Buddhism.
As the result I organised a photoshoot and took photo of a person reading a book. At the background is visible a Stupa - buddhist symbol of enlightenment. Edited photo was retouched.
