The mantra, Om Mani Pädme Hum is easy to say and quite powerful, because it contains the essence of the entire teaching. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics, and Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. Pä, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance, Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration, and the final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom. “So in this way recitation of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these six perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?”— Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones
The six syllables purify the six realms of existence in suffering. (For example, the syllable Om purifies the attachment to bliss and pride, which afflict the beings in the realm of the gods)
Symbol | Purifies | Samsaric Realm
Om | bliss / pride | gods
Ma | jealousy /lust for entertainment | jealous gods
Ni | passion / desire | human
Pe | stupidity / prejudice | animal
Me | poverty / possessiveness | hungry ghost
Hung | aggression / hatred | hell
When used in meditation or if recited daily, Om Mani Padme Hum (or Hung) can remove negative karma and thoughts and help one achieve enlightenment and awareness. The last word, ‘Hum’ or ‘Hung’ means indivisibility, or something which cannot be torn apart. It holds both wisdom and method and this cannot be broken or divided. It is a reminder that each one of us has purity within us—we just have to go through the paths to enlightenment to uncover it and erase all impurities from ourselves. The symbol also helps us realize the emptiness of the words, thereby helping us detach from the world to seek enlightenment. 🧘🏽♂️🕉🔥🙏✨

BEHIND THE SCENES
We see shelters emerging from the horizon. There’s not much else. It’s like driving through a lunar landscape. My senses are on high alert and the adrenaline is pumping through me as I jump down and walk towards the small village. What’s going to happen? What will their reaction be?
The Mundari: look beyond their nakedness, beyond the dust of the land, and see how truly beautiful these people are.

Temple of Hephaestus, Agora of Athens (Greece).
This marble temple was probably erected between 460 and 420 BC by a yet unknown architect. The building is surrounded by a Doric colonnade having six columns on the narrow sides and thirteen columns on the longer sides. The interior of the cella housed the bronze statues of Hephaestus and Athena, created by the sculptor Alkamenis; according to the traveller Pausanias, they were probably executed between 421 and 415 BC. The sculptural decoration of the temple featured highly interesting metopes that adorned the external colonnade. The east side depicted nine of the feats of Herakles, on the north and the south side are depicted four of the feats of Theseus. The frieze features a victorious struggle of Theseus and the fight of the Centaurs.

L'edificio è circondato da un colonnato dorico con sei colonne sui lati corti e tredici colonne sui lati lunghi. L'interno della cella ospitava le statue in bronzo di Efesto e Atena, create dallo scultore Alcamene; secondo il viaggiatore Pausania, furono probabilmente eseguite tra il 421 e il 415 a.C. La decorazione scultorea del tempio era caratterizzata da metope molto interessanti che adornavano il colonnato esterno. Il lato est raffigurava nove delle imprese di Eracle, sul lato nord e sul lato sud sono raffigurate quattro delle imprese di Teseo. Il fregio mostrava una lotta vittoriosa di Teseo e la battaglia dei Centauri.

Расскажу немного о нашей аллергии снов. 📍
Вот идёт весна. Я очень ее жду и в то же время все цветения меня уже пугают 🤦🏼♀️. .
К тому же, недавно я давала глазирований сырок. И что вы думаете, он два дня кашлял ! Я уж подумала заболел. Да, я писала, что аллергия на молочные продукты у нас проявляется кашлем и слегка шероховатостью на коже. Кто бы мог подумать, что аллергия на продукт может вызвать кашель🤷♀️.
И теперь, все пьют какао на улице, а он стоит и тоже хочет-то. И вот стоят вокруг люди, и все же у нас очень умные и начинается, «да купите вы уже ему, да что ж ребёнок так плачет», и т.п. Люди, да не лезьте вы в чужой монастырь со своими советами! Помню просто как в том году он кашлял до рыгачки (простите за подробность. И вы понимаете какие были взгляды у народа, все думали что вывела жутко больного ребёнка 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ . Советы отвлечении летели сразу, все думали что мамаша не адекватная просто 😂😂😂😂 Но на самом деле, это просто ребёнок с аллергией. .
📍это может пройти , после 4х лет. А может и нет. Но, если не пускать в организм постоянный раздражитель, то есть большая вероятность того, что аллергия пройдёт. И слова типа «ну от двух глотков/ложек ничего не будет» не уместны. Любую аллергию можно победить, соблюдая диету📍📍📍
Have you ever feel like you are stuck in a rut in your daily life or any reason what might come in your brain but you need some air to release it out?. Orr.., you craving for some new experience and challenges, or maybe just a tiny travel idea that stuck for a long time in your head, and just because this and that in your routine, you blocked it.
Well, that was me back in a couple of years. It's never too late to start the journey again, right?. The problem is when you have a habit to travel solo, maybe right now is the time to find a companion.
Gladly I found one!. it a She. My ex-colleagues at my previous work. I tell some more of her later.
Well Folks.., Let me start the stories in every grid I shared later. The Routes, How-to-get-there notes, Budget notes and whatsoever been done in 3 days 2 nights for 2 Countries with many places.
After a 2 hours long wait, here I am at the St Peter’s Basilica.
The rich intricate detailing were so fascinating. I can spend a whole day there and still not be satisfied.
Just imagine the kind of effort, time and labour had gone into building it. .

Last Friday people lost their lives in a horrendous terrorist attack orchestrated by a monster who possessed so much hate towards the Islam. Something I, someone with Muslim friends, can’t comprehend. Tears streamed down my face while I wrote a little piece about the feelings I experienced during this day and the love I have for the Muslim community. Because of a lot of positive reactions I decided to translate it to English. Read about it today at 12PM CET.

I was out of the country on Friday 15th March 2019 when I started receiving messages of concern from friends back home.
Immediately I jumped on the internet and started scrolling, searching for answers and I was absolutely sickened to my core when the headlines began to pop up.
Never in a million years would I have expected to see those headlines on our national news.
Now I’m back I am still in disbelief this has happened to our tiny, beautiful country, Aotearoa, let alone the place I’ve called home the past few years.
The people of Christchurch have been through so much already but we will get through this too.
Seeing the way the community and nation has banded together and the outpouring of love and support has been incredible.
My heart goes out to the victims and families and for all of those suffering ❤️
The admiration I have for my amazing friends and the people who work in the emergency services is sky high, they are absolute troopers 🙌🏼
NZ will get through this ❤️ #thisisnotus#weareone#kiwis#nz

Kendrick Lamar Duckworth better known as Kendrick Lamar is one of the Hip Hop artist in today’s society. With his lyrical content, flow, and delivery he is the embodiment of the essence of Hip Hop. He is one of the few Hip Hop artist fighting to keep the culture moving towards with meaningful lyrics while always pushing boundaries to expand the culture. Hip hop have not always been about the MC as a lyricists but the primary focus became and remain so for quite sometime. In today’s society rappers are pushing forward a new style of hip hop in which we haven’t seen before. Similar to the beginning of Hip Hop this style is seems to have more importance and the beat and the rhythm of the track instead of the vocals. Hip hop is expression so though there is no right way to be an artist Kendrick takes on the approach that the message matters which he displays throughout his music. According to Gale Biographies: popular people, “Critics felt to pimp a butterfly retained the movie-like feel of Good kid. m.A.A.d. city, while taking a stance on contemporary issues. The album had a distinct narrative, supported by skilled lyrics and a wide array of sounds from jazz, hip hop and funk.” #kendricklamar#rapper#hiphop#hiphopartist#culture#expression#artistry#poetry "Lamar, Kendrick."
