zen by monokowalla zen by monokowalla
Zen places great importance on moment-by-moment awareness and 'seeing deeply into the nature of things' by direct experience.

It can be also seen in ~Blacks-and-Whites's gallery.

So what is the significance of putting stones on top of each other in Zen?

I love this image :)

This reminds me of something that occured around the town I live in...
Somone stacked stones in a very similar fashion all over town, and they weren't glued because after a storm or even slight winds the towers would be knocked over. We never found out who it was who did this.
It's amazing how seeing small things like this can completely change your outlook on the day.

I really like the photograph, it's very beautiful (^_^) , BUT it's not zen (the title is very innapropriate). The same applies to any other pic on deviant art with the title zen... none of them are zen. Add a "not" (not zen) to the title and it would be perfect (and true to the antiphilosophy)

you're right, meditation would be probably more appropriate, however zen is nowadays linked with calmness and insight [meditation]- that's the popular thought-, and i think that it covers more meanings than meditation does...
just my own choice and feelings...but i also agree with You.

Thank You for the comment- i appreciate :hug:

I think this is amazing. I never really looked at those stacked rocks that I see all the time in such a beautiful artistic way. Really love the dark contrast. Excellent shot :+favlove:
