"Prayers are the very highest energy of which the mind is capable." Samuel Taylor Coleridge Sacred to the Tibetians & the Bhuddhist followers ,the prayer flags hold a lot of significance in their spiritual life. The mantra "OM MANI PADME HUM" is extremely powerful and frees oneself of greed, jelousy, pride & aggression. Contrary to popular belief, the prayer flags do not carry prayers to the Gods,rather, the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. . . . Other facts about the Prayer Flags : . . . - Each color on the flag symbolises a force of nature. 🌍🌊🌞💨 . . . - The flags should never be still - they should embrace the wind at all times . . . - Keeping the flags on the ground is considered disrespectful. . . - The fading of the flag colors overtime is considered auspicious symbolising that the winds have carried the prayers to the Gods. . . . - The Best time to place these flags is around the new year because it is the time when the soul has the maximum capacity to purify itself of all evils. . . . #nofilter #travel #travelbug #travelstoke #traveljunkie #travelblogger #travelogue #traveladdict #traveldiaries #bhutantravel #globetrotter #travelphotography #photooftheday #instagood #lonelyplanet #instamood #instadaily #hills #earthpix #doyoutravel #beautifuldestinations #igers #tripotocommunity #fromwhereistand #welltravelled #lifewelltravelled #prettylittletrips #mytinyatlas #beautifulmatters #travelcommunity at Bhutan

#Repost @bob__thurman with @get_repost ・・・ "I understand “Buddhism” to be the matrix of a civilization, in its full form, new to the West. It consists of ethics, politics and a wide array of sciences, as well as religious methodologies and perspectives. I have been most attracted to its sciences, especially its “Inner Science” of philosophy / psychology. Through “Inner Science” one can come to understand reality better — reality of the world and of the self. I have not yet mastered all of this, since it requires (and enables) perfect enlightenment, but I have worked through enough to have a healthy respect, even awe, for the accomplishments it represents. Even from the little I have learned, I am a much more cheerful person than I was, or than my ancestors seem to have been. I am less angry, less frustrated and less confused than I would have thought possible. At the same time I am still open and learning, not fanatical in conviction and more and more astonished as I notice new things about life and about Buddhism every day." Robert A.F.

Reposted from @nomadandmad - This shot is a very simple shot. But it all that the moment matters. Here uou will meet Krishna who walked us through the culture and lifestyle in Bhutan. ———————————————————— Bhutan was an exceptional experience for me. It almost felt like visitong a distant brother where things where very similar at the surface but as we dived deep into understanding there lifestyles everything seemed so different. One of their uniqueness that I enjoyed thoroughly was, their love for traditional outfit. Walking down the lanes in the city you could always see men and women sporting their traditional outfit. ———————————————————— #nomadandmad #travel #travellove #traveldairies #travelgram #travelogue #girltraveler #bhutan #bhutantravel #bhutandiaries #bhutantourism #bhutanese #bhutneseoutfit #freespirit #likeforlike #like4likes #likeforlikeback @amazing_bhutan #amazing_bhutan @simplybhutan @bhutan_awaits @landofthe_thunderdragon @bhutanmajestictravel #instaindia1 #instaindia #igersindia #photography #photographer #photostory #thimphu #potraitphotography #potrait - #regrann

Reposted from @maphopper - LEGEND states that Guru Rinpoche—also known as Guru Padmasambhava—arrived in Bhutan by flying on the back of a tigress. He visited several caves and cliff sides in order to meditate and subdue local demons. He spent a large amount of his time on the mountainside above the Paro Valley, sanctifying the place that would later become one of Bhutan’s holiest monasteries—Paro Taktsang or Tiger’s Nest. Interesteting Facts: 1. The monastery is made up of four temples and a collection of residential shelters 2. Sometime during March or April, the Tsechu festival is held in the Paro Valley. This festival honors and remembers Guru Rinpoche as he had performed dances in the valley long ago to bring health to the king.

Reposted from @rhapsodytadka - Typical schedule of a Buddhist monk in Bhutan is anything but chockablock . . . A typical day 👀 like . Morning 4 to 11.30 a.m.⛰ Bhutanese monks study daily for about 10 hours on an average starting their routine life at 4 a.m. to 5 a.m. with a wake-up call. After getting up early, monks perform morning prayers and start studying. Young boys who join monastery at the age of 5 to 9 learn to read chhokey, which is well-known as the sacred language of Tibetan Buddhism, Dzongkha, and English in the classroom. They continue to study and revise till 11.30 with a small break of morning tea.☕️🤹‍♂️🎻 . Afternoon 12.30 to 5.00 p.m. After having their lunch🍲they work on their handwriting daily for half an hour. Bhutanese monks also invest time in learning how to play musical instruments, English, performing rituals, and making rituals cakes in noon. Later, they do revision. . Evening 5 to 10 p.m.🌄 Bhutanese monks dine🍎early at 5 pm and perform evening prayers. From 7-10 pm, they do evening studies and go to bed early at 10 pm daily. . . . After going through this routine you will never find any one scowling or anything close. . I was almost convinced this a innate quality that people in this part of the world are born with. But to sustain these smiles after going through unyielding regimen they have got something right. Probably the only thing we need to get right.🌈🌻 . . As Buddha rightly said ~~ “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you.”🦄 . . No wonder Bhutan is the happiest country in the world. 🇧🇹 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bhutan #thelandofdragons #indiantravelblogger #punakadzong #tourismbhutan #bhutantourism #bhutantravel #bhutanese #kidsofbhutan #indiantravelbloggers #indiantravelblogger #bhutan_diaries #bhutantraveller @b.h.u.t.a.n #indianblogger #travel #mountains #peopleandplaces #beautiful #punakavalley #monks #bhutanmonks #happy #paro #instagram #tourismbhutan #punakabhutan #punakadzong #punakha #punakhadzong❤️ #punakhavalley #canon #happiestplaceonearth #instagram #happiestcountryonear

Have you ever heard of the land of dragons and happiness? If not let me introduce you to the constitutional kingdom of Bhutan I’m currently traveling. This special country only has got 700.000 inhabitants on only 38394 sq km and is such a unique country in this world for many reasons I’ll explain post by post. Let me start with geography. Bhutan is located in southern Asia in the eastern Himalayas and is bounded to the north by Tibet (China) and to the west by the Indian states of Darjeeling and Sikkim and to the west by West Bengal, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh (from west to east). More than 80 percent of the country is over 2,000 meters high. Stay tuned to find out what makes this adorable country so outstanding in this world. To keep you curious: ever heard of a value system, which is called "Gross National Happiness"? . . . . #bhutan #bhutandiaries #bhutantravel #bhutan_ig #bhutantourism #bhutanese #bhutantrip #bhutanography #bhutantraveller #visitbhutan #landofthedragons #landofhappinessbhutan #landofhappiness #travelwriter #visualstoryteller #storyteller_tribe #amazingtravelbeauty #fiftyshadesofnature #bhutannature #ruralbhutan #ricefields #sky_lovers #sky_collection at Bhutan

In Thimpu last week — this elderly gentleman, along with many others, was saying his prayer beads while circumambulating the chorten (stupa), which was built in memory of His Majesty the Third Druk Gyalpo and is dedicated to world peace. The flock of birds had been pecking for crumbs in the background but just happened to startle and take flight. 🐦🇧🇹💕 at Memorial Chorten, Thimphu

This temple is one of the holiest sites in the kingdom and clings impossibly to a sheer cliff face 900 meters above the Paro Valley. It was first built in 1692 at a cave where Guru Rimpoche meditated in the 7th century A.D. Legend states that Guru Rimpoche flew to the site atop the back of a tigress and meditated in the cave for 3 years, 3 months, 3 days and 3 hours in order to subdue evil demons residing within it. The cave has been considered a sacred site ever since and many famous saints have travelled to meditate in it. Taktsang Lhakhang is located approximately 10 km north of Paro town at an altitude of 3.120 m. In order to arrive at the temple,e visitors must trek for around 2-3 hours through beautiful, shady pine forests.
