Sindhu Darshan.

Sindhu or The Indus is one of the largest river system in the world, originating from Tibet and flowing through regions of Ladakh, Kashmir, India, and Pakistan.

Sindhu means a body of trembling water. Rigveda gives a feminine gender to all the rivers mentioned therein but Sindhu is the only river that is given a masculine gender, which implies that Sindhu is a warrior.

Even the word Hindu is believed to be derived from ‘Sindhu’. More about Sindhu river will be in my next post.

Maitreya is typically pictured seated, with either both feet on the ground or crossed at the ankles, on a throne, waiting for his time. He is dressed in the clothes of an Indian royalty. As a bodhisattva, he would usually be standing and dressed in jewels. Usually he wears a small stupa in his headdress that represents the stupa of the Buddha Sakyamuni's relics to help him identify it when his turn comes to lay claim to his succession, and can be holding a dharmachakra resting on a lotus. A khata is always tied around his waist as a girdle. .
