The Buddha Loves Me photo series is incredibly calm and spiritual -- so much so, in fact, that I completely understand the rationale behind its name. With a sense of liberation, each image focuses on a sense of centeredness and even contentedness, which is often practiced in the Buddhist religion.

Shot by Kazakhstan-based photographer Arman Zhenikeyev, the Buddha Loves Me photo series is beautiful in its simplicity, encouraging people to embrace the little things in life, be it the softness and release experienced with powder or smelling the singular scent of a rose.

I especially like the lighting techniques used throughout the Buddha Loves Me photo series, which really give the whole portfolio a quietly dramatic feel.
