Alan Brigish sends the following:

In my recently published book, Breathing in the Buddha, I show how people, with far less than we manage to find a richness and satisfaction in their lives. And I discovered and explored a shocking truth ─ that the contentment and joy that go along with western ideas of Nirvana seem to exist, in some abundance, in worlds in which most of us would never choose to live.

Breathing in the Buddha is a photographic exploration of Buddhist life in Indochina. Join me in the most amazing trip of my life as I dive, head first, into Burma, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia, accompanied only by my guide, my curiosity and my camera.

The book tells two parallel stories. The first explores with images and extended captions, the daily life of people in four countries of Indochina. The second story is an exploration of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path. The intent is for the reader to explore Buddhist philosophy in the context of daily existence of people, who, in the most densely populated part of the world, still practice Buddhism.

Alan’s book is indeed gorgeous, and his photography outstanding.  Check it out.
