📖 Transforming Our Daily Activities By Venerable Thubten Chodron 📖 I N T E R N A L M O T I V A T I O N I S W H A T M A T T E R S The essence of the Dhamma practice isn’t our external performance, but our internal motivation. Real Dhamma is not huge temples, pompous ceremonies, elaborate dress and intricate rituals. These things are tools that can help our mind if they are used properly, with correct motivation. We cant judge another person’s motivation, nor should we waste our time trying to evaluate others’ actions. We can only look at our own mind, thereby determining whether our actions, words and thoughts are beneficial or not. For that reason we must be ever attentive not to let our minds come under the influence of selfishness, attachment, anger, etc. as it says in the Eight verses of Thought Transformation: “Vigilant, the moment a disturbing attitude appears, endangering myself and others, I will confront and avert it without delay.” In this way, our Dhamma practice becomes pure and is effective not only in leading us to temporal and ultimate happiness, but also in enabling us to make our lives beneficial for others.

Shiva, the first yogi. He is my absolute favorite and my deity of choice, he, personally to my path, is my favorite expression of the ultimate. When I look at him, I see myself. For we are one and the same. #buddah #enlightenment #spirituality #universe #unity #buddhism #hindu #hinduism #prana #kundalini #meditation #vipassana #yoga #yogi #dalailama #sadhguru #shiva #awareness #consciousness #expandyourmind #energy #chakras #chakra #karma #dharma

Magical structures: Pagodas symbolized sacred mountains, and they were used to house relics or remains of saints and kings 🏯✨Particular styles become typical to a region. In Japan, for example, the five-story pagoda is common, with each story representing one of the five elements: earth, water, fire, wind, and void (sky, heaven). 🌄🔥🌊🍃🌥️ . . . . . #japan #tokyo #nara #jetset #adventurer #gypsy #wanderess #traveller #whereintheworldislynna #travelbug #nihon #pinkhair #narapark #naranara #naradeerpark #kohfukuji #temple #kofukujitemple #buddhisttemple #buddhism #kohfukujitemple #pagoda

In the space between thoughts, in the silence of your mind; that is where you will find your voice. Your voice that can speak to the universe...your voice that can never be silenced. If you learn to trust it, you will never be led astray. #magic #wisdom #strength #photography #bliss #intelligence #science #simplify #nature #mentalmastery #peace #wellness #mindfulness #photography #fishing #fun #zen #buddhism

“Each day we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” – Buddha In order to blossom, the lotus flower must grow through mud, dirty pond water, and generally rough conditions—but it blooms anyway. Like the lotus, we too can grow through dark times and difficulties, and we can rise again and again to shine from a pure place within. Lotus flower showed up today for us in our pond. How blessed I feel to witness the birthing process of such beauty. The lotus is a reminder that in a world riddled with fear, we can stay loving inside and, one by one, open our petals to spread that peace into the world. The symbolism behind the lotus flower is one of great significance and strength for us all to aspire in. Great blessings as we rise above the murky waters and shine our great truth with the world as our witness. May you find your inner strength and open your petals to expose the radiant self. Namaste. 🙏🏼🕉 #birth #challenges #lotusflower #strength #perserverance #buddhism #hinduism #legends #riseabove #shine #awakening #blessings #solarisrising #radiant #blossom #shinebright

Possibly the wisest and truest words I've seen. This is why I love #buddhism because it truly teaches us to live #inthemoment. The past is no longer relevant and the future doesn't even exist. Right now is all you have, what are you grateful for?! Be happy NOW! How many of us say "I'll be happy when... I land that job, I find the right one, I build my dream house, I graduate, I lose 20 pounds, etc" Just look around! Blessings abound #mindfulness #gratitude #peace #happiness #buddha 😊❤💚💜
