Wat Thammamongkol (วัดธรรมมงคล) - The Highest Pagoda in Thailand

One of the things i love about Bangkok, is that even after 12 years in this amazing city, there is still so much to discover. Today, I visited a temple that I never knew existed, and not only that it contains the highest pagoda in the land.


Wat Thammamongkol

The pagoda at the temple is 95 metres high and is said to contain a sample of hair from the Lord Buddha. The pagoda is built in an indian style and is crowned on the top with On the top is decorated with 17 kg of gold and 1,063 diamonds. Inside another building there is a giant jade Buddha statue which was hand carved by an Italian artisan.

It was a terribly hot day in Bangkok today, so I chose not to climb the stairs to the top of the pagoda and instead walked around the tree-lined grounds. If you wish to find this temple it is located on Sukhumvit soi 101 in the Punnawhi

SteemitPhotoChallenge #40 Street photography Entry 2 - Ayutthaya Monks

Buddhism is central to life in Thailand. You can find street scenes with orange clad monks every day.

StreetScene 1.jpg

Ayutthaya Monks

The historic City of Ayutthaya is a UNESCO word heritage centre standing on the ruins of the second capital of the Siamese Kingdom built between the 14th and 18th centuries. The city was destroyed by the Burmese army in 1767 and was never rebuilt. The ruins are a worthy visit as an easy day trip from Bangkok by minivan taxi and then walk around or get a tuk-tuk driver to guide you. We walked.

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple (해동 용궁사)

I visited this temple when I first went to Busan and totally fell in love with it! It is situated on the coast of the north-eastern portion of Busan. There is a bus going there but you need to walk or take a taxi to go inside, it's not so far though. I was wearing uncomfortable shoes that day so I chose to take a taxi. The view is just breath taking, it is situated in a beautiful area with bright blue waters and a stunning view. I strongly recommend you to visit this temple :)

Gapsa temple with my mom 2 갑사 구경 두번째

Aftter Passing by the gate of 4 kings of heaven, we arrived at main area. Gapsa temple was built in Baekhae Dynasty AD 420. About 1700 years ago.
Eventhough Gapsa had been destroyed several times, it is really amazing that it works until now. Monks are trying to get the enlightenment as they did 1700 years.

사천왕문을 지나 한참을 걸어 갑사 본 건물에 도착했다.
갑사는 백제시대인 서기 420년에 건립되었다. 지금으로 부터 약 1700년 전이다. 그간 전쟁으로 파괴되기도 했지만 아직도 1700년전에 만들어진 절에서 아직 스님들이 수행을 하고 있다는 것은 흥미로운 일이 아닐 수 없다.

The first building was the auditorium where the monks have studied. I could feel some dignity. There was a spinning bible which was looked like Tibet’s. Suddenly the strong desire stroke me to go to the Tibet.
제일 먼저 우리를 맞이한 건물은 강원이었다. 스님들이 공부하는 장소였다. 건물이 높아서인지 위엄이

Breath! You are already calm and happy

Every present moment is the happiest moment. It is only to be realized. Happiness is already knocking at the door, we just have to open the door and windows of our heart to let it enter. It is already within us; it is waiting at our door, but how to connect with it, how to experience it, and finally how to let it enter our lives.
The simplest and easiest way to feel the happiness within us, and make our-self instantly calm and happy is through conscious breathing. I do not call it meditation because it can be practiced anywhere and anytime, no matter whatever you are doing. It is simply breathing, nothing else but mindful breathing.It makes us aware of the present; it makes all worries go out of our mind and calms us, relaxes us. There is no past, no future but only present awareness. It is a channel, a bridge to connect....Click the link below for full story:

Boredom: The Gateway To Freedom...?

Boredom has gotten a bad rep.

All my life, I've looked at it as something negative. This week, my perception shifted.

I was visiting family in my hometown and accompanied my mom to a meditation and discussion session at the Shambhala center. It was excellent. So I went the next week as well. And in the discussion group, an article was read that contained a small nugget of wisdom that created quite a powerful mindshift in me. Namely, that boredom can serve amazingly.

When discussion time came, I shared my ah-ha, and the lady leading the group proceeded to talk about the concept of 'hot' versus 'cold' boredom - 'hot' being that usual boredom people most think of when lacking stimulation/excitement, 'cold' boredom being significantly more useful as an exhaustion of attachment to that which no longer serves us.

Boredom with our neuroses. Boredom with old habits. Boredom with our own bullshit.

Yeah.

Who knew.

Looking around the Buddhist temple. The beauty of the History.

Somebody told me that there is a beatifule temple near my office.
He told me that I can get someting what I want if I pray for it in that temle.
I dont belive in the superstitious, but It was interesting.

Yesterday was perfect.
Sky wss blue, birds were singing.

From the parking place, It took a more than 30 minuits to meet a stone showing me there is a temple.

image

Passing to the stone, I found the Portal.

image

Inside if the portal was very colourful.

image

More than 20 mins needed to walk

image

On the road the stone Buddha welcome to me.

Silence is a virtue

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/28/Pause_%28silence%29.svg/326px-Pause_%28silence%29.svg.png

It was Ben Franklin, (1706-1790), who said that Silence was a virtue in his autobiography, and described the virtue as, Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.

With young children and a noisy open-plan office environment, I crave silence in all its forms. The absence of sound, the inner stillness that comes from meditation, yoga and retreat and times of solitude is an antidote.

I once attended a 10-day silent retreat at a monastery in the countryside. It was quiet, with woods and fields for walking meditation and silent contemplation. It had a powerful effect upon me, particularly when we were permitted to talk again with other participants and all speech appeared to lack harmony.

For spiritual growth and transformation, a silent mind, free from thought is considered essential in Buddhism and has been common practice since the rainy season retreat

4 things to do if you want to become a Buddhist monk

Phurba-me-588x516.jpg

Ever thought about leaving everything behind and become a Buddhist monk?

Have you, at some stage in your life, felt inspired by devoting yourself to meditation and helping others?

I’m always happy when I hear that someone is considering to walk that path. It can be a unique way to deepen one’s understanding and to help people.

However, let me share a few things I learned on the way (I was a Tibetan buddhist monk for 10 years). I summarized them in 4 tips that you might want to consider before making a decision.

Here are 4 important aspects of a monk’s life, I’ll start with the rough ones. If you are a woman considering to become a nun, the very same applies.

## Personal tranquility? Just forget it.

The mass media has fed us pictures of serene meditators, facing gorgeous Himalayan landscapes.

You’ll probably have moments like that if you chose to become a monk, but tha

The Root Cause: Social Oppression and the 4 Noble Truths

https://i.imgsafe.org/3cb83c1f57.jpg

It is no secret that freedom can cease to exist. Far beyond the dogma of religious institutions, we find that our social architectures can reflect our spiritual traditions. If the ideas and actions of Mother Teresa, Simone de Beauvoir, Noor Inayat Khan, Vandana Shiva, Pema Chodron, and others, were supported to the same degree as our banking and real estate systems are, how different would our world appear!? Pope Francis, Abbie Hoffman, Muhammed Ali, Ghandi, Lama Garchen Rinpoche, and countless others, have expressed their spiritual values in respect to social philosophy. Political philosophy and social activism exemplify an evolutionary process. Like all relative matters in an objective and ever changing duality, a time-based reality of what was, is, and is to come, socioeconomic action has causes and effects. These causes and effects are secondary to our internal observation of our external identity. Even to a Tibetan monk, while emolliating himself, the primary issue a

Slow Saturday: Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, by Chogyam Trungpa


In an ideal world, Saturdays will be reading days. There will be laws stating the exact amount of cosiness of your coach, the exact amount of coffee in your cup sitting handy on the coffee table and the exact amount of hours dedicated to reading in this context: minimum 6. And we should all obey these laws, otherwise we will be punished by working, instead of reading.

Alas, there aren't such laws on this planet, at least not yet.

Well, even without these laws, I managed to do a solid block of 6 hours reading today. Minus coffee. And minus the cosiness of the coach. Because what I read wasn't a book, but code. JavaScript, AngularJS, stuff like that. Ok, I admit it: I worked almost the entire day at @zentasktic. With some moderate success, to be honest, but not with the success I was expecting. If my work would have been as effective as I wanted it to be, this post would have been generated from within

Nobody is Compassionate

"Myths tell us how to confront and bear and interpret suffering, but they do not say that in life there can or should be no suffering.

When the Buddha declares there is escape from sorrow, the escape is Nirvana, which is not a place, like heaven, but a psychological state of mind in which you are released from desire and fear ... (and your life becomes — ) harmonious, centered, and affirmative (even with suffering).

The Buddhists speak of the bodhisattva — the one who knows immortality, yet voluntarily enters into the field of the fragmentation of time and participates willingly and joyfully in the sorrows of the world. And this means not only experiencing sorrows oneself but participating with compassion in the sorrows of others. Compassion is the awakening of the heart from bestial self-interest to humanity. The word 'compassion' means literally 'suffering with.' ... compassion condones suffering in that it recognizes, yes, suffering is life. " - Joseph Campbell, [The Power of Myth](https://www.a

Consciousness Exists Eternally.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cpDDXQNZ_Q

Apparently consciousness is everywhere. And it is consciousness that re-incarnates according to Buddhism. New theories in neuroscience suggest consciousness is an intrinsic property of everything, just like gravity. buddhism and neuroscientists are on the same page.

Worth listening to these wise words of both a great scientist and the Noble Winner, Dalai Lama about what consciousness is really...

Solitary Monk sits atop a mountain in Phu Hin Ronkla, Thailand

https://s21.postimg.org/uewp9y5jr/IMG_8714.jpg

Some friends and I had traveled to Petchabun province in the north of Thailand to see how the locals celebrated Thai New Year. Nearby where we were staying there was a large National Park. The national park although not particularly well known among travellers, covers nearly 80,000 acres and stretches across 3 Thai provinces all the way to Laos. Due to the rugged terrain and isolated location, the park served as home to the CPT (Communist Party of Thailand) during most of the tumultuous late 70's and early 80's.

We were suggested to take about a 20km drive to the top of one of the mountains in the park (Phu Hin Ronkla) where we would see the rock formations of Lan Hin Taek (‘field of the cracked stones’). At this point, near the edge of the mountain sandstone knolls create a strange visual aesthetic.

Bubbles And A Butterfly

https://scratchliving.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/unnamed-file.jpg

I was into bubbles a few years ago, still like to draw and paint bubbles. I like iPad games popping bubbles too! This was done in watercolor if I remember correctly. I did a whole series of bubble paintings and sold or gave all of them away.

Phena Sutta: Foam, translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Form is like a glob of foam;
feeling, a bubble;
perception, a mirage;
fabrications, a banana tree;
consciousness, a magic trick —
this has been taught
by the Kinsman of the Sun.
However you observe them,
appropriately examine them,
they're empty, void
to whoever sees them
appropriately.

Beginning with the body
as taught by the One
with profound discernment:
when abandoned by three things

— life, warmth, & consciousness —
form is rejected, cast aside.
When bereft of these
it lies thrown away,
sensele

How To Find Peace Of Mind

https://youtu.be/Bi6vvhXfScU

This is the first video released by a project that I admire very much, called Study Buddhism. The project is coordinated by prof. Alexander Berzin (many times translator of The Dalai Lama and a very profound connaisseur of Tibetan Buddism) with whom I had the privilege to talk a few times. In February this year I also had the privilege to organize an event with him and one of his colleagues and it was a very enlightening, but at the same time natural and warm, experience.

The short video above dwells on 3 main principles that you need to understand before starting to train your mind for happiness: interdependence (everything is related to everything), impermanence (everything will cease to exist, eventually) and compassion (everybody has his own set of troubles and fighting his own battles).

It's simple advice but it just works.

Tibetan letter "A" for dream yoga.

Tibetan A is a sacred symbol that is used in tibetan practices of yoga dream. It is essential to concentrate on that symbol for improvement of awareness in lucid dreams.

The images below are drawn from tibetan script. I've made to use as a desktop background. I can make it in any resolution you wish absolutely for free. Feel free to ask.
