Manipura Abstract Chakra Art

Manipura or manipuraka is symbolised by a downward pointing triangle with ten petals, along with the color yellow. The seed syllable is Ram, and the presiding deity is Braddha Rudra, with Lakini as the Shakti.

Manipura is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. Manipura is believed to correspond to Islets of Langerhans,[40] which are groups of cells in the pancreas, as well as the outer adrenal glands and the adrenal cortex. These play a valuable role in digestion, the conversion of food matter into energy for the body. The colour that corresponds to Manipura is yellow. Key issues governed by Manipura are issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth.[41]

Harkness sunrise


the Book of Bokeh

Because of the first few pictures in this set, you will think that I lost my mind and that in post production I jammed the ‘saturation’ and color controls all the way to ‘eleven.’ (Does anyone get this joke?) The truth is that I de-saturated each somewhat because the colors were so intense, vivid and bright. It was the most amazing sunrise I had ever seen! Harkness State Park on the Connecticut side of the Long Island Sound keeps on amazing me, visit after visit, after visit.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

Getting Lost in the Colorful Autumn Trees Photography Prints

This is the time of year that’s a photographers dream.  Every where you look you see colorful beauty.  In Colorado you can chase the autumn colors for a long time starting with the high elevation and then ending with the lower elevations.  So… we are still chasing autumn… today we are in the old town parts of Longmont Colorado, Boulder County, as I was combing the streets for something cool this caught my eye.  Hope you like.
