Cherry blossom is the flower particularly of the Japanese tree. The significance of the cherry blossom in Japanese culture goes back hundred of years ago. It represents the fragility and beauty of life. As well it’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.

I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions.

Beautiful! I love the cherry blossom especially those hanging variety that sways in the breeze.
Thank you Jamyang for your very and poetic kind comment. I haven’t seen you recently on wordpress with your awesome posts.
Thanks for the feedback. I had been posting regularly. I’ll try find out if I cl8ck the wrong button somewhere.
Oh really? My bad that I missed them all, because I love your posts.
Thank you Cornelia. I had not heard from you too. I just completed online course about Buddhism with Harvard and it got me interested in the lotus sutra again. Will be posting on and off about it. Hope to hear from you.
Thank you Jamyang, how interesting an online course with Harvard, can’t wait to hear more about it. Is there a fee for it and what’s the name of it? You make me very curious about it.
It is totally free. You can go to http://www.edx.org. The title is Buddhism through its scriptures. It is secular and many Buddhist traditions and the scriptures they follow were being featured. I waited for 1 year before the class reopen. You can check out if it is still open for admission
Breathtaking words of wonder and beauty, Conelia with such a wonderful presentation of beautiful pink flowers. Thanks for the awesome share.
Kamal, I thank you so much. This time I chose my own words, which come out of my heart. Your comments always lighten up my day.
Welcome always dear Cornelia and u did so well.
Thank you Kamal
Happy to enjoy these pictures because we don’t have cherry blossom here in Jaipur. 🙂
Arv, it makes me happy that you enjoyed the images. I took those images at a very crowded place at a Cherry Blossom Festival here in California. The few blooming cherry trees there were overcrowded by people taking their smart phone pictures with a blossom. Thanks god I had my close up lens with me, so that focused just into the blossoms and branches.
I never knew there is a cherry blossom festival. Thanks for the info, Cornelia. Which lens do you use?
I used my Nikon Micro lens 105mm.
Thank you, dear Cornelia, for this wonderful sermonette on the beauty and deeper meaning of the cherry blossom. I enjoyed both the amazing images and the words of wisdom that accompanied them. Well done!
Dear Peter, you are always so very kind in your comments in well chosen words to describe how you feel about my work. For this time I chose to share my own words.
So beautiful 😍
Rateka, I appreciate your kind comment, thank you.
These are beautiful Cornelia.
Thank you Edith, I enjoyed so much capturing them
