Young Buddhist monks during the early morning procession around Luang Prabang to collect their daily alms. ----------
Observing this colorful ritual was certainly one of the highlights of my visit to Laos! Have you witnessed an alms procession here in LP or elsewhere?
A couple of young monks play with each other in the residential area of the Tawang Monastery on November 4, 2017. Most of the monks are boys who belong to the Monpa community. According to a past custom, in a family of three sons, the middle son was conscripted to the monastery and in a family of two sons the youngest son was inducted into the monastery.
Born in the mountains & brought to the beach with many stops in between...
Although esoteric in nature, it serves as an invitation to move forward, regardless of skin color, nationality or language. We do this by showing love, compassion & understanding for each other. It is by practice that this comes to light.

August 30, 2011 - The Dalai Lama, Panchen Lama, Karmapa and other Lamas protect and bless the small nomadic settlement along the banks of Namucuo (Lake Namu). For those of you that are familiar with China, may recognize this tent as not a Tibetan style tent but the thick green military style tents that the army and migrant workers use. *
When I had arrived to the small settlement, this picture was actually sitting on top of the the tent to dry.
In celebration of the rising of feminine authority around the anniversary of last year's women's march, let's honor:
"As the Great Mother, she takes us into her #womb of Perfect Wisdom and guides us through the great #mystery of life for the birthing of our own #awakening . She comes as the Great Liberator separating reality from unreality. She shows us how to let go of our inordinate desires. Her wisdom brings us to the understanding of the bodhisattva vow and why anyone would cultivate self-sacrifice for the sake of helping others.
#Prajnaparamita teaches us to develop right speech and the mind of the Buddha. She shows us how to weave the #Buddha nature of #compassion into our mantle, our garment of light. She teaches us the path of selflessness and how to empty ourselves through the act of giving. As we do this, God fills us with his Light.
Lord Buddha achieved his #liberation after many lifetimes of pursuing and cultivating the qualities of a Buddha. Through adoration of the Mother and the raising of the sacred fire called the #Kundalini , he attained #enlightenment . As we raise this #sacred energy through each of the #chakras (spiritual centers), it eventually "merges in the heart as the Christ, and flowers in the crown as the Buddhic enlightenment of the thousand-petaled lotus" ~Djwal Kul, "The Sacred Fire Breath"

I am a grateful shadow of the man I've been after viewing the changes in scenes this teams been long boarding around about Boulder and some seeing. While learning how to humble the bumble in our worlds previously felt entitlements lost for the enlightenment as our hearts have embraced the sharing of our true selves found in love and compassions grounding.
We know you can see us but can you honestly hear what we're screening? We're tired of feeding the empty spaces with this race placing so many people off balance in a chase to heal who the hell we are.
It make no sense to guess when we know with in where our resources exist and how painful without it a life is to get start it ..we need not risk tisk tisk this dismissal of wisdoms heart's earned freely handed with this up cycle from our higher being..we say cheers to those making changes without taking from another beings path the eye view equal too which we from here now see solutions with every soul we're so grateful to surf our sea across.
I never realized I was such a gambler till I gambled with my life to survive then to see why others gamble so which way with theirs. I seek to build more realistically for free more than ever I had hoped to earn before as I see what love and compassion does beyond the curtains pulled over the spirits who dance without this balance. @redhotaussie #shadow#shadows#bumble#humble#poetry#adventure#soulsurfer#healing#alchemy#builder#infrastructure#renovation#heartwork#dogsofinstagram#outwardhound#ruffwear#australianshepherd#family#homeiswheretheheartis#love#compassion#harmony#upcycle#buddhist#balance#namaste
