Ten Suggested Buddhist Readings
Artists, writers, and photographers have been influenced by Eastern philosophy for centuries. One could argue that Henri Cartier Bresson’s famous coinage, The Decisive Moment, is the quintessential essence of Zen philosophy.

This attitude requires concentration, discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry.”
~Henri Cartier Bresson~
