Photo from Mahadeva - the Heart of Qinghai Lake. An island in the western part of the lake was historically a home to a Buddhist monastery. No boat was used during summer, so monks and pilgrims travelled to and from only in winter, when the lake froze. #trendyadventurer#hangzhouchina#shanghaiexpat#shanghaitodo#qinghaihu#qinghailake#qinghaiprovince#buddhismtemple#buddhism🙏#buddhistmonk

Day #36 - Around the world in 80 days 
Sai Bat (Morning Alms) is a longstanding
Day #36 - Around the world in 80 days Sai Bat (Morning Alms) is a longstanding tradition in Laos Buddhist culture. Every morning at sunrise people line the streets of Luang Prabang in order to offer alms of cooked rice to scores of Buddhist monks in their rich saffron colored robes. This is an important part of the cultural heritage of Luang Prabang and has been going on since Buddhism was first introduced to Laos in the 14th century. Some of these monks are very young and they gather early in the morning in silence to receive alms from the faithful, a ritual that weaves spiritual and practical bonds between the monks, novice monks and the community they serve. Novice monks are young boys, between the ages of eight and twenty, who temporarily commit to monkhood for a period of three months to twelve years so they can receive an education denied to them in the overcrowded and underfunded village schools. Many often come from impoverished families. A small percentage of the novices stay in the monkhood as adults. But most return to civilian life after a few years of study, hoping education will give them a leg-up in a country where the rewards of economic growth are skewed towards a handful of wealthy and elite. #pallaviandrohuns2019adventure#laos#luangprabang#buddhistmonk#buddhism

The true
Did you know meditation is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety? ✨ The true nature of our mind is not mingled with stress and anxiety. Thus, by allowing our mind to quiet down it becomes possible to experience the calm clear state of mind which always exists within us. ✨ - Sit with a straight back in a relaxed manner (not rigid), either crossed leg on the floor with a prop under our sit bone, or in a chair. - Eyes either closed or softly gazing 2 feet in front of you. - Your chin is slightly pulled in to elongate your spine, keep your hands facing down on your knees. - Take a deep breath in and then exhale all the stale air, stress & negativity out of yourself. - Continue to follow your inhalation and exhalation. - When you notice your mind wander, bring it gently back you your breath. ✨ As your mind and breath quiet down, rest your mind in the quiet space; remaining aware of any thoughts, sounds and feelings as they arise without grasping at them or rejecting them. Allow them to dissolve back into your mind from where they arose. Keep your mind open like the sky, where clouds arise and dissolve back from where they came.

3/3. When they were doing prayers on top of Borobudur he suddenly came to @judi_lua and me and gave us a yellow/orange wristband 🙏🏾 - After that long day My mom told me that it’s really special and he wishes us the best luck and all the best for life. And that one should hang this wristbabd as high as possible to a tree, so the blessings get passed on to other people around the world. Isn’t that nice 😍🙏🏾 He told us to eat, sleep, walk and sit with mindfulness. ☺️🙏🏾 #candiborobudur#waisak2019#waisak#vesakh#borobudurtemple#borobudurnews#analoguevibes#retroaesthetic#buddhismus#buddhism#explorejogjakarta#candi#monks#indonesia_photography#earthshotz#facesoftheearth#buddhistmonk#portsvision#portrait_shot#inspirationcultmag#adventurousstorytellers#moneyshot#faces_of_streets#dreamersmagazine

Monks at work. The Essence of Indochina series. Monks don’t spend all their time
Monks at work. The Essence of Indochina series. Monks don’t spend all their time praying, seeking tak bat or meditating, certainly not these monks in Laos. These three are building an extension to their residence and are in the process of fixing the steel, which will form part of the flooring of their new residential building. This is all taking place in the grounds of an existing temple in Luang Prabang and during one of my regular walkabouts. As usual, I am going into places most would not enter, engaging with those most would ignore and exploring locations well off the tourist routes. What made the monks laugh, was my offer to them to help in fixing the steel, as it was something I regularly did during my university vacations, when I worked on building sites to earn money, to travel. I had the travel bug then and still have the travel bug now. #laos#laostravel#lao#laomonk#monks#buddhisttemple#buddhistmonks#buddhistmonk#buddhistlife#travelstory#infinity#peoplephotography#visualstoryteller#travelstoryteller#infinity_visual#infinityphotos#visual-storyteller#visualstories#storytellers#storytellingphotography#storytellingphotographer#mytravelstory#worldfaces#beautifullocations#beautifuldestinations#travelphotography#thepeoplesphotographer#igstories#igtravels

Buddhist culture. People wake up early to give food to the monks and some go to the temple. This is culturally nice for buddhism for learning and sharing things. Also for people when they go to the temple and spend time together helping each other to do good. The monks will also teach people, through buddhism, how to be good and live a good life. . . #buddhism#buddhist#healthylifestyle#thaiculture#naturalhealth#naturalliving#thailand#buriram#monk#thaipeople#buddha#karma#countrylife#buddhistmonk#goodlife#helpingothers#goodkarma

Across towns and valleys First, second and third Announcing morning prayers A conch trumpet is heard ☀️🐚☀️ A familiar sound in the mornings in Ladakh is the somber call of the conch trumpet, played by Buddhist monks from monastery rooftops. It is an announcement for morning prayers for monks, and a beautiful alternative to an alarm clock for everyone else. This call is being made from the rooftop of the handsome 15th century Thiksey Monastery. For us, it was a beautiful start to an eventful, wonderful day exploring the monasteries of Ladakh. In our next post we’ll share some photos from inside Thiksey Monastery at prayer time, stay tuned! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend 💕 . #morningprayertime#conchtrumpet#fromtherooftops#bestalarmever#buddhistmonk#alifedevoted#insightmoments#moretolearn#takeamoment#bestill#wakeup#inthemountains#weliketotravel#exploringtheworld#ventureout#findyouradventure#escapetheordinary#escapethe9to5#explorewildly#monastery#thikseymonastery#bestplaces_togo#lehladakh#ladakh#ladakhdiaries#ladakhtourism#india#conserveandprotect#wasalwildlife

We’re on day 6 of Ladakh Week guys 💕 Today it’s all about the amazing monasteries. This post (in two parts, this is 2 of 2) shares the external beauty of Hemis Monastery. . Hemis Monastery – set in the mountains approx. 1-hour drive from Leh, Ladakh in India. It is a stunning corner of the world for Buddhist monks to follow the path of Buddha in their quest for spiritual development. When we saw Hemis Monastery for the first time, we immediately got a sense of prosperity. Not wealth, per se, that wouldn’t make sense, but there was a sense of investment here, and of quiet abundance; an abundance of peace, solemnity, patience, reflection, and a gentle, beautiful hint of vibrance and joy. Radiating from the building walls, from the structures, from the surrounding mountains, from the silent air. This monastery breathes centuries of contemplation. . The courtyard you see in these photos was quiet the day we were there, as it is most days of the year. But standing there we could feel the chatter and dance and celebration of the ages; this courtyard is the home of the annual Hemis festival, where the memory of Buddha Shakyamuni is observed in a major extravaganza in July each year. Buddha Shakyamuni’s life mission was, and is, to improve the spiritual condition of all living beings. Well, that just makes us happy. And It’s hard to imagine any other life mission being more important 💫💫 Or more worth celebrating!! . #courtyard#celebrate🎉#buddhistwayoflife#lifemission#peace#solemnity#caringforothers#buddhistmonk#monk#hemismonastery#monastery#mountainside#expandyourhorizons#ventureout#traveltolive#escapetheordinary#explorewildly#bestplaces_togo#lehladakh#ladakhweek#ladakh#ladakhdiaries#ladakhtourism#india_gram#conserveandprotect#wasalwildlife

Wake up at 4am to join a sunrise prayer with Reverend Nagase and his lovely monk
Wake up at 4am to join a sunrise prayer with Reverend Nagase and his lovely monks guest at the Peace Pagoda, to breath the Prana, in Sanskrit word means "life force" or "vital principle", for Hindu it is also described as originating from the Sun. He leaves isolated in the park since 33 years and take care of the peace Pagoda, a spiritual and precious place here in London. When at 4.30 I arrive at the entrance of the park I realise that was closed till 6.30 am ... the only way was to climb over the gate. Have been such a special day. I felt blessed to helped them for the celebration of the anniversary of the Peace Pagoda. I felt nourished by such a wonderful and pure vibes spread from all of them caring actions and words🙏❤️ . 1984 this Peace Pagoda was presented to Londoners and completed in 1985 just weeks after his doner died at the grand old age of 100. . The Venerable Nichidatsu Fuji, or Fujii Guruji as he was called by Mahatma Ghandi, is best known world-wide for his decision in 1947 to begin constructing Peace Pagodas in many locations around the world as shrines to world peace following the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. . He was devoted to world pacifism and international disarmament. He worked with Gandhi in India in the early 1930’s, fighting for Indian independence and protesting against Japanese militarism. . The double-roofed structure, which is 33.5 m high and made of concrete and wood, is one of around 80 around the world and the second to be put up in a Western capital city. The first was in Vienna in 1983. I simply love this spiritual center 🙏 here in London at Battersea Park near home.
