The tiger is a symbol of strenght. In Buddhism, the tiger skin represents the transmutation of anger into wisdom and insight, also offering protection to the meditator from outside harm or spiritual interference....#thailand🇹🇭 #thailife #buddhism #beautifulseasia #tiger #buddhisttemple #buddhistteachings

А teacher is not important, only the teaching itself matters. ⠀ ⠀ 
If someone tells you that smoking is bad for your health but smokes himself/herself, the fact that cigarettes are detrimental for your body doesn’t change from that.
⠀ 
So instead of being disappointed with a public figure who promotes piece, love, or whatever else, but doesn’t live up to her or his own standards, remember that the message is more important than the person in this case. Don’t make an idol from anybody, we are all imperfect and may slip back into bad behavior.
⠀ 
P.S. I don't know this guy. He just joined in 😆
⠀ .🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️
⠀ 
DETRIMENTAL – tending to cause harm ⠀ 
IDOL – a greatly admired person

On my journey ... "When the weather is hot, keep your mind cool. When the weather is cold, keep your heart warm." - Ajahn Brahm

I LOVE fostering puppies!! I love watching them grow and explore. I love seeing their personalities develop, and love giving them a safe place to thrive. This little guy was from our last litter. He stole my heart. I was not in the space to adopt him, it wasn’t the right timing. Letting him go was difficult, but I knew it was what he needed. It was what I needed as well. 
Learning more about impermanence and allowing all to be what it is, not being attached to anything is difficult but brings more joy and peace in the long run. I am practicing impermanence with puppies, then I can work on impermanence of death. 😂😬 #pemachodron #thichnhathanh #puppies #puppiesofinstagram #buddhistteachings #impermanence #fosterpups #iinhealthcoach #intergrativehealth #mindfulwellness #cutepuppy #letitgo

Listen to this Tibetan folk song from Nubri Valley, Upper Gorkha collected by an American ethnomusicologist, who grew up a Buddhist, during his research. 
His recordings have songs from Tibetan celebrations, festivals, weddings, and contain Buddhist references. This is very different from European music where sacred songs have a particular time and place, and religious references rarely find their way into ballads. 
In this song, Lama Pema Gyamtsho evokes an image of Kathmandu Valley’s holy sites and in doing so orients the people of Nubri towards Kathmandu, rather than Lhasa: “Seeing pilgrimage places at the wedding
I vividly encountered Kathmandu
An amazing spectacle arose
I received great blessings at the stupa...”
Full lyrics and article linked in the bio. Enjoy!

Sometimes people really get to me. The mean ones, the rude ones, the impatient ones. 🙄 The people who think their lives are the busiest, the most drama-filled, much more difficult than anyone else’s life. 🤦‍♀️
.
.
But more than that, we get stuck in our own little melodrama in our heads of our lives. What’s happened in the past, what could happen what should happen, we replay all of it over and over, walking around in a haze. How much of life do we miss just because we’re stuck in this trance?🤔
.
.
I worked at the entry to a grocery store just out of grad school, and it amazed me how many women looked absolutely pissed off. 😡 (Yeah, it’s usually women. We’re the worriers, y’know?) No good reason, just walking into the grocery store. Full on frown, pursed lips, squinty eyes. They looked miserable, truly sour. After many months of watching people look very unpleasant for no particular reason, I decided to really check my expression. Cause I didn’t want to be an old, pissed off looking grama someday. 😂
.
.
So let’s try to remember this week, while shopping or taking the kids to wherever or eating out, that the people around us are PEOPLE. ❤ We all have our histories, our problems, our failures and successes. Yes, life is stressful and a little scary. But maybe we can humanize each other a little bit, and make the world a more welcoming place.

Compassion in action. We should develop loving-friendliness within then we can bring it out. When it comes out it becomes compassion. 
Yesterday early in the morning novice monks and a boy rescued this baby monkey. It was so vulnerable and terrified when we found it. It was beaten and injured by its adult monkeys. It’s the nature. 
This innocent little guy was looking at me in a way that asking a chance to live and see the beauty of the world. This baby touches the bottom of my heart. Without second thoughts we took it to a vet sergeant. It was also very difficult to find a doctor as it was a Saturday finally we found one. He kindly check little patient and clean it gave injections and medicine. 
Now the baby monkey 🐒 is at the Monastery waiting to be cured. 
Dear friends, do at least very small act daily out compassion. It will bring you joy and happiness. 
May beings be well happy and peaceful.
Those who are in fear be free from fear.
Those who are in dangers be free from dangerous.
Those who are in miseries be free from miseries. 
Those who are in worries be free from worries.

Spent this morning in the Island's little Buddhist temple. Meditation, chanting and listening to the monk's teaching. And then the food, oh the food.... Community, joy and devotion. I love this place.

In order to lead a different life, you have to consume different (new) information. •
Take stock of what media you ingest on a regular basis. If we constantly consume junk food we will have unhealthy bodies. So wouldn’t it follow that if we constantly consume junk media, we risk the health of our minds? 
Invest in your mental wellness. If you’re not taking care of your mental wellness no amount of success and material wealth will matter. Seek happiness first, and watch the good things follow. 😊

SGI is Soka Gakkai International. Just  saying! Ikeda/SGI were excommunicated from Nichiren Shoshu in 1991. SGI does NOT practice Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism. They changed the tenets & practice. Most SGI members ONLY hear reasons for the excommunication from SGI. All Cult watchdog groups call SGI a CULT.  Nichiren Shoshu is NOT a cult. Donations to SGI support the Komeito Political party! There are over 300 SGI VPs (Ikeda’s Relatives & ALL JAPANESE MEN) paid $350,000/yr.

Explanation of the Juryo Chapter
by Reverend Chodo Ishibashi and Reverend Ryodo Suwa
Foreword
During this period, we will study the topic, “Explanation of the Juryo
Chapter.” Every day during Gongyo, you recite the Hoben Chapter and
this Juryo Chapter of the Lotus Sutra, so you should be extremely
familiar with them. Today, I would like to speak in an easy-to-understand way about the nature of the Juryo Chapter, its position within all the teachings of Buddhism, and the essence of its doctrines and principles.

This quote right here is my biggest struggle. I’ve spent my whole life TERRIFIED of alienating people. Even people I don’t like, I’m afraid that they won’t like me. And it just doesn’t make any sense.
.
.
We project ourselves onto others ALL THE TIME. It’s just how our brains work, how we see the world. We assume everyone thinks like we do.
.
.
And I was raised to be suspicious, to believe that people didn’t actually care about me, that they just wanted something from me. Someone want to go to the mall? Obviously it’s just cause I have a car and they don’t. Don’t ever go out of your way for anyone, cause you know they wouldn’t do the same for you. Don’t loan anyone money cause they won’t pay you back.
.
.
What if there’s more to life than that? Than to constantly believe that people are out to get me, to take advantage of me? What if someone wanted to go to the mall with me just to go shopping? What if helping people move into a new apartment is just a nice thing to do, and you don’t need to expect anything in return?
.
.
What if what if what if.
.
.
Today I’m going to write down all these strange fears I have and really look at them. Are they real? Will they hurt me? Should I just shut myself up in my house for the rest of my life and talk to noone? Obviously not. So I’m going to put these fears out there and CRUSH THEM. Because they’re NOT REAL.
.
.
I encourage you to think of one thing you want to do but haven’t yet for whatever reason, and write down what’s holding you back. Even if it’s something small, like scheduling a doctor’s appointment or saying hi to your new neighbors. Write it down, acknowledge it, then rip it up and toss it. Take back the power to control your life, your actions. Free yourself today!

Obviously it’s just cause I have a car and they don’t. Don’t ever go out of your way for anyone, cause you know they wouldn’t do the same for you. Don’t loan anyone money cause they won’t pay you back. . . What if there’s more to life than that? Than to constantly believe that people are out to get me, to take advantage of me? What if someone wanted to go to the mall with me just to go shopping? What if helping people move into a new apartment is just a nice thing to do, and you don’t need to expect anything in return? . . What if what if what if. . . Today I’m going to write down all these strange fears I have and really look at them. Are they real? Will they hurt me? Should I just shut myself up in my house for the rest of my life and talk to noone? Obviously not. So I’m going to put these fears out there and CRUSH THEM. Because they’re NOT REAL. . . I encourage you to think of one thing you want to do but haven’t yet for whatever reason, and write down what’s holding you back. Even if it’s something small, like scheduling a doctor’s appointment or saying hi to your new neighbors. Write it down, acknowledge it, then rip it up and toss it. Take back the power to control your life, your actions. Free yourself today!
In Buddhism, meditation is not about learning how to overcome the experience of emotions altogether or overcome feelings altogether or go beyond feelings, go beyond emotions, but it is about being able to distinguish what sort of experiences lead to the healthy experience of emotions and what sort of mental factors, unless they are dealt with, will
continue to support negative states of mind so therefore will encourage the negative emotions and so forth to grow.
Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX

This large praying mantis was on the electric lift right before it was taken back to the equipment rental place. It walked onto my iPhone and for its safety I took it to a willow tree where it stepped off of my iPhone onto the tree.

“The present moment is all that is, too think of the past or future, you think about it in the present. It’s hard to believe people based their actions and who they are on things that came before, rather you were someone different in that moment, like you are in this moment. You are not the same person you were ten steps ago.” #enlightenment #spiritualknowing #reasoning #buddhistteachings #zen #zazen

Spread Mettā. Mettā is not of affection or carnal love, but the means of loving-kindness or goodwill. Mettā embraces all beings without exception. The culmination of Mettā is the identification of oneself with all beings. #Mondayquote #buddhistteachings #buddhism #metta #lovingkindness #onelove #oneworld #onehumanrace #sadhumovement #burmesemonks #burma #texas #dallas #seattle
Lunedì 6 Agosto, QUARTO APPUNTAMENTO con Gli otto versi sulla trasformazione della mente 😊
Ogni Lunedì, per 8 lunedì di seguito, posterò un verso con il relativo significato.
Sarei felice se questi piccoli semini potessero smuovere la coscienza di chi li legge 🙏💚😘
.
Quando vedo esseri dal carattere sgradevole,
oppressi da forte negatività e sofferenza,
possa io averli cari, perchè essi sono rari,
come se avessi scoperto un tesoro nascosto.
.
SIGNIFICATO: con questo verso torniamo al concetto basilare della #compassione. Occuparsi di chi ha bisogno, assistere le persone bisognose con #amore e #tenerezza è un gesto meraviglioso.
Noi aiutiamo loro, certo, ma loro aiuteranno noi nella nostra pratica spirituale, perchè ci arricchiranno interiormente, ci aiuteranno ad evolverci, a crescere spiritualmente 💚💜🙏
Diciamo sempre grazie a ciò che di bello la vita ci offre, ma anche a quegli ostacoli o situazioni spiacevoli, che ci mette davanti.
Ogni cosa e persona è un insegnamento 💚💜🙏

Are psychedelics a legitimate tool for mental development? Most Buddhists would say no, real insight comes from within and psychedelic insights are illegitimate. However, more progressive teachers, such as Robert Thurman, are not as hasty to ignore these substances. What’s your take?

The practice of meditation does not mean we have to stop feeling all forms of disturbing emotions and thoughts but it´s the intensity and the degree that is important. In Buddhism generally, but especially in Mahayana Buddhism, we have the notion of "dualistic attitude". A dualistic attitude is very black and white. So with meditation it´s supossed to help us to break that up so that we become a little more flexible regarding our experiences. 
Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche.

What does it mean to call yourself a cloud?

A cloud is like a wayfarer—a traveler just passing through. A cloud doesn’t stay, but it can do a lot to make the sky look beautiful when it’s there. A cloud is soft, not hard. Indeed, it is so soft, you can’t grab hold of it at all.

But a cloud is also unstoppable. A cloud can get through any obstacle with no difficulty at all.

A cloud can take any shape. It can be whatever form it needs to be.
A cloud doesn’t get pulled this way and that by the circumstances of the world. It just goes on. A cloud is free. A cloud doesn’t want or need anything. And it doesn’t waste time comparing itself to other clouds.~Daniel Scharpenberg •

Throughout our day we can pause, take a break from our usual thoughts, and wake up to the magic and vastness of the world around us. Pema Chodron, one of my teachers, calls this "to leave a gap".
_
Leaving a gap means living in the space that exists between each breath and each pulse of your heart. It means slowing down to acknowledge the existence of the most little being on Earth and honour its sacredness and its birth right to be -just be. 🌱 It also means letting flow in us and on us every tears and laugh and blood and screams you need to; because when you open, you open to the whole thing -both the sorrow and the beauty. 
_
Leave a gap to take the time and set your intentions before any deeds: breathe before sending an email, breathe before tweeting, breathe before passing by a tree or a leaf... Slow down to connect with the immediacy of your experience, to connect with the space surrounding your thoughts and the space that our heart  holds within for a boundless compassion and reverence for Life. 🙏🌳🌾

Regrann from @thewaveandtheocean -  We don’t meditate because the experience of meditation is good, just like we don’t go to the gym because we love lifting weights. We might enjoy the experience of meditation or weightlifting but really that’s a bonus. The real purpose of either activity is bigger than that.
.

In the gym it might be confidence we’re really searching for whilst pushing those weights. In meditation it could be a whole lot of different things. Maybe better sleep, anxiety or depression relief, or maybe some spiritual reason.
.

The point is that we do both of those activities for the benefits outside of the activities themselves, in our normal lives. So that is where you should keep a look out for the benefits.
.

Try to notice is you’re slower to get angry and frustrated in situations where you might have not been so chilled before. Notice if your sleep pattern improves or if you become a better listener or are able to turn down junk food more easily. Your daily life will slowly change as you meditate, if you stick at it. . .

Even after years of dharma practice, it is still quite likely that we will adhere to a strong belief that the world is solid and unchanging. Clinging to the appearances of our world, we take their reality for granted—to the point of completely forgetting the profound dharma we have learned. As simple as they are, the four reminders can reverse our habitual patterns of forgetting the preciousness of human life, ignoring impermanence and death, pretending that the immutable laws of cause and effect do not operate, and chasing headlong after pain in the guise of seeking pleasure. They are the first step in confronting our extreme beliefs about the existence of our world. Each of the reminders brings home the unerring message of change and the opportunity we have to practice meditation and study the teachings of the Buddha in order to gain insight and awakening in this lifetime.

Mindfulness is the opposite of mindlessness. ✨ 
In any given moment if you are not mindful then you are mindless. 
Mindfulness practice cultivates your awareness of the present 🎁 , thereby removing you from being dragged down by your past or being anxious about your future. 
Mindfulness practice is about appreciation, for the now, for what your blessings are today.
