Buddhist Temple Chagdud Gonpa Khadro Ling, Tres Coroas, Brazil

Today a bit of Nepalese culture. In Kathmandu we spent a few extra days, so we had a chance to visit Patan and one of its main attractions - the Golden Temple. Very unassuming from the outside, inside it is a feast for eyes! This is a Buddhist monastery, but they have very interesting approach towards other religions:

 

'The Golden Temple's doors stand wide open, symbolizing the acceptance of all religions, walks of life and faith in accordance with the poem written by Jaap Sahib’s prayer: “Des our na bhes jakar, rup rekh na rag jattra tattra disa visa, hue phaileo anurag”, which means “The almighty has no country, no traditional costume, no mark, no form and favours no one in particular. The almighty is present in every place, on every side and in every corner; this universal love exists everywhere”' (*)

 

I took quite a few shots there, but presenting here just one, hoping to encourage you to visit this place!

Below is an excerpt from Sunrise With 12,999 Monks:

 

A monk’s life is full of tradition, ritual and a strict daily routine.

 

For instance, every day at dawn, monks walk the streets with alms bowls in their hands.

 

In Buddhist cities like Chiang Mai, Thailand, those monks are met by local devotees; each offering a donation.

 

Now, imagine that ritual and multiply it by 12,999 monks.

 

Every December, monks from all around Thailand converge on Chiang Mai to celebrate the Buddha’s enlightenment and receive alms from tens of thousands of devotees.

This is a view of the Taebaek Mountains from the grounds of the Buddhist monastery within Seoraksan National Park.

 

Since this picture has an essentially 'bald' sky, the idea of which I more or less denigrated in yesterday's post, and yet is a beautiful image, I thought I would dedicate it to my friend Dean!

On the walls of the 100 Column Pagoda in the Sam Bor District of Kratie.

This is a photo of the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist Temple in Willen Park Milton Keynes. It is run by Buddhist monks and nuns who work to remind people of the importance of seeking peace in world affairs.

 

The main practice of the monks and nuns of the Nipponzan Myohoji revolves around walking and chanting "Namu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo" while beating their drum as a call for world peace - can be quite a shock first thing in a morning when you are concentrating on setting the camera up!

 

This is an HDR shot that I have deliberately made to look a little "dreamy" - I think the effect adds some peace and serenity to the photo which is in keeping with the subject matter,

 

Hope you like it.
