Awakenings: Asian Wisdom for Every Dayby Danielle Follmi
Each photograph by Olivier is accompanied by the thoughts of great masters, including Confucius, Lao/i>
Awakenings is the fifth installment in the Offerings for Humanity project. Each book in this popular series reveals the spiritual wisdom of a new region of the world. This year, Olivier and Danielle Föllmi invite the reader to travel to East Asia.
Each photograph by Olivier is accompanied by the thoughts of great masters, including Confucius, Lao Tzu, Dogen Zenji, Shonin Shinran, D. T. Suzuki, Gao Xingjian, and the Buddha. These words have guided generation after generation for thousands of years, and they continue in this volume to enrich our views and lives with their thoughts on nature, self-awareness, family, and society.
The photographs take us to the captivating temples in Thailand, lavishly mystic nature of Cambodia, mist-enshrouded landscapes in Myanmar, bamboo forests in Vietnam, rice paddies in China, and Zen gardens in Japan. Awakenings teaches us, one day at a time, the wisdom of the East.

I purchased this about a year ago as a gift and read a lot of it before I purchased it. I did not think such a book could exist. It is filled with ancient wisdom quotes from different sages from a place most would call the Orient, and there are different color photos of a variety of subject matter. It is absolutely amazing.
I found this book is very interesting, value of life and good memory photos of South East Asia, especialy in Lao country and would like to say billion thank you to the magic photographer Mr. Olivier Follmi and please continue to provide us such so beautiful photos in the future and please more take care yourself. I am looking forward to read the next book with such so wonderful and beautiful photos soon.
