Read Cyber23Pardon me for the delay of this circle. I'm going to be very busy until next week, and starting... now. Lol, really. I guess things will go back as they were by early December hopefully. :D Well great people, if you want to get included, just simply follow these steps :)1. Share this circle publicly/or in a community (and no 'playing games', a'ight?)  Note: If you're sharing this circle with a page or another profile (a page which is intended only for sharing circles), I will only include you, not the page.2. It's optional but after you share the circle,  you may comment and +1 to make sure you will be included. And make it sure it's in the original post so i can easily see you :-)  3. If you're included already, just keep sharing the circle! Because that would be great ... and awesome. (and also because this is a snowball circle)  4. If you're a blue head (no profile picture) , please, ""have a face"" :-) So if i missed you, i'm sorry, it's my bad! And it would be appreciated and an honor to be called an idiot, i mean really.... :-DAnother Note: If you got excluded and if you think i made a mistake, just tell me :-)This circle usually rolls on the weekends.#Circle   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #shared   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #sharing   #sharingcircles   #sharingiscaring   #sharingmeansthankyou   #add   #addcircle   #addpeople2014-12-03 02:33:30501686

Rinpoche Prays for Those Suffering after Second Nepal Earthquake
A second big earthquake has hit Nepal. Ven Roger Kunsang writes:


“The earthquake hit near Everest and Namche. The first measured 7.4, and then there was another soon after. I have talked to Kopan and others in Nepal, and in brief this is what we know so far in relation to FPMT …



Kopan and Khachoe Ghakyil monks and nuns are all fine (the ones who were at the monastery and nunnery); buildings have more damage … cracks are bigger in some place but nothing actually collapsed.
Lawudo- Ani la Ngawang Samten (Rinpoche’s sister) and others, no serious harm but shaken up a little. Ani la said a lot of damage this time in Khumbu area. The main gompa at Lawudo has collapsed … the wall on the kitchen side, other damage also in other areas of Lawudo. Now the place is in a pretty badstate.... more »

The main gompa at Lawudo has collapsed … the wall on the kitchen side, other damage also in other areas of Lawudo. Now the place is in a pretty bad state.
Ganden Yiga Chozin, Pokhara – Drolkar says she and others are fine.
Thame area … more houses collapsed, so far have not heard of serious harm or deaths.
Other areas … Tsum, Jalsa and HBMC … haven’t got updates yet.
Kathmandu has had a lot of houses and buildings collapse … initially they are saying that there seems to be more damage than the first quake … they say many of the houses that got damaged but didn’t collapse now have collapsed.

People were just starting to get moving again … now they are really shaken up .. the reality of possibly more to come is strong.”


Ven Fran writes from Kopan Monastery:
“We are all okay, sitting in the garden and making jokes how we are now earthquake qualified.
But it was scary again, nearly as strong as the first one. No more additional damage at Kopan, but in Kathmandu, a lot of half broken houses now completely collapsed. We could see the dust clouds rising directly after the earthquake.”


Lama Zopa Rinpoche has been doing prayers with students in New Zealand.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Teaches at Mahamudra Centre [Video]

Lama Zopa Rinpoche began teaching in New Zealand over the weekend at Mahamudra Centre. Rinpoche taught on “Working for Peace – Pacifying Inner and Outer Turmoil.”


Rinpoche also reconsecrated the stupa at Mahamudra Centre. Due to water leaking into the central chamber of the stupa and creating serious damage to the contents, the stupa had to be repaired and resealed as well as completely refilled and redecorated in 2012.  


Video of Rinpoche’s teaching at Mahamudra Centre is available for streaming.

Mama Cat Adopts an Orphaned Squirrel Baby

When animal rescue workers introduced an orphaned squirrel to a mother cat and her family of kittens, the cats’ reaction was hardly something you’d expect. Instead of hissing at the squirrel or acting out aggressively, the mother cat takes the baby squirrel in as one of her own!

The little fur family seems to not only accept the squirrel’s presence, but they also don’t seem to notice that he is any different than they are. When it comes to caring for a fur-baby in need, species simply does not matter.

Thanks to the care of his adoptive mother, this little squirrel will grow up nice and strong. We can only hope that he will be able to return to the wild soon!

Orange Tulips Bloom

Day 3/5 of #fivedaysbokehchallenge to which I was kindly invited by my dear friend +Fior de' Alba who brings love and light to the world through her photography and personality.
I'd like to invite my talented and inspiring friend +Wayne Lu to take and continue the challenge for sharing some of his wonderful bokeh photos :).
This photo is dedicated to all my friends that have followed me and especially to +Fior de' Alba for inviting me to participate in this challenge.

Tulips, one of my most favorite flowers just because they have so many shades of various colors. Bokeh are especially nice and most commonly used on flowers for the separation of a bunch of them. It is also a normal output effect of the lens as we get into macro range and close to the subject, it is actually harder to get greater depth of field so that the whole flower is... more »

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Begins Teaching Tour, Emergency Relief Arrives in Thame

After completing the Most Secret Hayagriva initiation late at night on May 3, Lama Zopa Rinpoche departed from Kopan Monastery in Nepal on May 4 to begin a worldwide teaching tour. Rinpoche travels first to New Zealand’s Mahamudra Centre, where he is scheduled to teach May 9-10.


The Most Secret Hayagriva initiation at Kopan Monastery had been scheduled for April 27-30. Even after the devastating earthquake of April 25, Rinpoche decided to offer the initiation, which was given in the main gompa at Kopan Monastery, beginning on the evening of May 2.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Begins Teaching Tour, Emergency Relief Arrives in Thame

Kopan Monastery monks continue to lead emergency relief efforts, going out to offer aid packages to people in villages outside of Kathmandu. They are coordinating their efforts with Losang Namgyal Rinpoche’s organization and together hundreds of families are receiving emergency aid in a direct and organized way.


On May 1, the first shipment of aid arrived in Thame, the birthplace of Lama Zopa Rinpoche located near Lawudo Gompa in the remote Solu Khumbu district. Five Kopan monks traveled with the supplies, which were flown to Lukla and then helicoptered to Thame. The monks helped organize the distribution of tents for 190 families. Most structures in the area received significant damage making them uninhabitable. 



Lama Zopa Rinpoche offered US$50,000 through FPMT’s Nepal Earthquake Support Fund for emergency relief in Thame. Cherok Lama Sherpa, who is also from the area, is raising money and contributing to this relief effort as well. A second shipment of food is being organized and will be delivered as soon as possible. Cherok Lama Sherpa will be arriving in the area this week to personally offer help and view the destruction.

..:: Natures Window ::..

I have just returned from spending a couple of relaxing nights in the Blue Mountains with my family. Of course I couldn't just chill out the whole time so I done some exploring and discovered some new locations to shoot up here during the next workshop I host in August. It's no secret I am a sucker for caves and natural windows so I was pretty stoked to spend some time in this beautiful location overlooking the Kings Tableland. I am so grateful for photography which has revealed to me many moments such as this.

Video of Kopan Monastery after the Earthquake

Phil Hunt, coordinator for the Animal Liberation Sanctuary, a project of Kopan Monastery, was enroute to Nepal when the earthquake struck on Saturday, April 25. He arrived safely in Kathmandu on Sunday, April 26, and traveled up to Kopan Monastery. 


“At Kopan Monastery the monks and international visitors were outside, most gathered at the open stupa garden in a mini tent city,” Phil wrote for the organization Tree of Compassion. “Damage was minimal but several of the older buildings had some serious cracking and slipping and were no-go areas.

“At Kopan Monastery the monks and international visitors were outside, most gathered at the open stupa garden in a mini tent city,” Phil wrote for the organization Tree of Compassion. “Damage was minimal but several of the older buildings had some serious cracking and slipping and were no-go areas.


“I found Pema the Animal Liberation Sanctuary manager and he confirmed our earlier email notification that the animals were fine and the structures unharmed. I visited the cows, who had just started to come into the shed, including Kalden, the calf who we rescued from the street in January and who had a most amazing recovery from terrible wounds after being attacked by dogs.


“I put my bags away and found a place in a tent for the night ahead. Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the founder and spiritual director of the monastery and the international Buddhist organization FPMT, not to mention the rescuer of the majority of the animals at the ALS, was sitting on a chair under a tree talking to visitors and later gave a teaching. …”


Phil shared a short video of Rinpoche and the enlightenment garden at Kopan on the day after the earthquake on YouTube:

Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground.
This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.
The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

There are two polar vortices in the atmosphere of planet Earth, one around the North Pole, and one around the South Pole. Each polar vortex is a persistent, large-scale cyclone, circling the planet's geographical poles. The bases of the two polar vortices are located in the middle and upper troposphere and extend into the stratosphere. They surround the polar highs and lie in the wake of the polar front. These cold-core low-pressure areas strengthen in the winter and weaken in the summer due to their dependence upon the temperature differential between the equator and the poles.

Making Homage to the Relics [Video]

In the Sutra of Golden Light, Chapter 18, it says:


“Then the Tathagata struck the surface of the earth with his hand, whose palm was soft as the newly bloomed lotus and marked with a thousand-spoked wheel. As soon as he struck it, the earth shook in six ways and there arose a stupa made of silver, gold and jewels. Then the Tathagata said to the Venerable Ananda: ‘Ananda, open this stupa.’ Heeding these instructions, the Venerable Ananda opened the stupa. Inside he saw an urn covered with gold and inlaid with jewels and pearls. Having seen this, he said to the Tathagata, ‘O Transcendent Lord, there is an urn made of gold.’ The Tathagata said, ‘Open these seven urns.’ Accordingly, he opened them. He saw relics whose colors were like snow and white lily. Seeing this, the Venerable Ananda said to the Tathagata, ‘OTranscendent Lor... more »

He saw relics whose colors were like snow and white lily. Seeing this, the Venerable Ananda said to the Tathagata, ‘O Transcendent Lord, there are relics.’ Then the Tathagata said, ‘Ananda, bring here the relics of the great being.’ Then the Venerable Ananda took those relics and brought them to the Tathagata. Taking the relics to the thousand bhikshus and holding them in his hand, the Tathagata addressed them in this way:


Here are the bones of one endowed with excellent virtue and supreme intellect,
Humility, meditation, delight through patience and sublime fame;
One who continually strove for the wisdom of his enlightenment;
Intelligent and possessing steadfast joyous perseverance,
He always delighted in giving.


“Then the Tathagata said this to the thousand bhikshus: ‘O bhikshus, offer homage to the bodhisattva’s relics fully charged with ethics and virtue, which are a field of merit and extremely rare to see.’ Then, their hearts filled with aspiration, those bhikshus paid homage to the relics with hands folded in reverence.”

Rinpoche's Pillar Altar

“When Rinpoche’s room at Root Institute in Bodhgaya, India, was expanded, a support pillar was left exposed in the middle of the room,” said long-time student Ven. Sarah Thresher, who has been sharing news of Rinpoche’s activities in Bodhgaya. “Rinpoche promptly designed a special altar with levels surrounding all four sides of the pillar that could hold many holy objects and be circumambulated every time anyone walks around the room.


“The finished altar also has the eight auspicious signs all around, offering bowls on each side and cupboards to store incense and other items.

Rinpoche particularly wanted the Stainless Beam mantra [Zung of the Exalted Completely Pure Stainless Light] to be put inside the small stupas since the benefits are so great. The idea is that people can carry these stupas with them as they circumambulate.”

Lama Zopa Rinpoche Visits Lawudo

On April 4, Ven. Roger Kunsang shared via Twitter that FPMT spiritual director Lama Zopa Rinpoche was boarding a helicopter bound for Lawudo Gompa and Retreat Centre, located in the mountainous Solu Khumbu region of Nepal. Lawudo is where Rinpoche’s previous incarnation Lawudo Lama Kunsang Yeshe meditated for 20 years, and it is also near to where Rinpoche was born.


Rinpoche’s visit is big news as his last trip to Lawudo was in June 2008. Not only is Rinpoche’s presence there very important to the Sherpa people in the area, Rinpoche is returning to an essential location in FPMT’s history. “Lawudo is the heart where FPMT started,” Rinpoche has said. Online, you can read the story of Rinpoche’s 1998 visit, “The Lawudo Lama Returns,” and other Mandala stories on Lawudo.

The Base, the Label and the Mind

During the 25th Kopan course in 1992 Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave a concise explanation of dependent arising, the way in which things exist:


Lama Tsongkhapa says, “By seeing the meaning of the dependent arising, emptiness, it stops the root of all the samsaric beings’ sufferings, ignorance, concept of true existence.” Whatever exists – hell, enlightenment, samsara, nirvana, I, action, object, everything – whatever exists, all these are dependent arising. By depending on the base, the mind which labels and the label, depending on these things, then the I exists, the action exists, the object exists, hell exists, enlightenment exists, samsara exists, nirvana exists, impermanent phenomena, permanent phenomena, all these things exist. All these things exist. So, depending on these three – base, mind, label – depending on these thingsthen it exist... more »

The Yoga of Going to Sleep

“When you go to bed, when you go to sleep … this is what you are about to do when you get back to your room. Or maybe here! Maybe, if I continue a little bit, then maybe here!” Lama Zopa Rinpoche joked during the 41st Kopan course in December 2008.  


“It is mentioned by Lama Tsongkhapa that when you go to bed, first wash your feet. I think washing the feet helps the mind to be fresh, to be not heavy, not sleepy, where you can’t wake up. The mind is clearer.


“Then, you go to bed in the position when the Buddha was passing away, on the right side in the position of a lion laying down, not sleeping flat on the bed. Your two legs are stretched out, the left leg put on the right, laying down in the position of a snow lion. It is said that with this method you wake up easily, so as to not waste your life, to nothave a very drowsy, v... more »

The Yoga of Going to Sleep

“When you go to bed, when you go to sleep … this is what you are about to do when you get back to your room. Or maybe here! Maybe, if I continue a little bit, then maybe here!” Lama Zopa Rinpoche joked during the 41st Kopan course in December 2008.  


“It is mentioned by Lama Tsongkhapa that when you go to bed, first wash your feet. I think washing the feet helps the mind to be fresh, to be not heavy, not sleepy, where you can’t wake up. The mind is clearer.


“Then, you go to bed in the position when the Buddha was passing away, on the right side in the position of a lion laying down, not sleeping flat on the bed. Your two legs are stretched out, the left leg put on the right, laying down in the position of a snow lion. It is said that with this method you wake up easily, so as to not waste your life, to not have a very drowsy, very heavy sleep. It is very easy to wake up to do practice.


“When you go to bed, think of light. Generate virtuous thoughts until you fall asleep. Generate virtuous thoughts in meditation.


“Also, when you’re about to fall sleep, you have to have the intention, the motivation, not to be overwhelmed by sleep, and without the delay of getting up. That is mentioned in the teachings. It is also mentioned in the teachings that there are three parts of the night: the upper part of the night, the middle part of the night and the lower part of the night. So, for those upper and lower parts of the night, practice Dharma, virtue, don’t sleep. In the middle part of the night, sleep. That also helps with your health. In the early part of the night, practice Dharma, and also in the lower part of the night, in the early morning, get up and do practice. In the middle part, sleep. That way, you don’t waste your life.


“For example (I’m not making this definite, I’m just using an example) let’s say you want to get up at four o’clock to begin your practice, to not be overwhelmed by sleep. To be able to get up at that time in the early morning to begin the practice, you have to have that kind of motivation, to wake up at that time, to have that kind of energy, of inspiration.


“That’s what mentioned in the lam-rim teachings. It’s said that you should be like a deer living in the forest. It doesn’t have a house and there are many enemies, so when it sleeps, it is a very light sleep, it keeps its ears up. It is a very light sleep because it has to be careful. It’s explained in the teachings like that. It means to not waste your life but instead to get up early in the morning to be able to begin your practice.


“Because you went to bed remembering the Buddha’s position, even when you go to bed, you don’t forget the Buddha. That helps. When you do that every night, that helps when you die. One day when you are in the situation where you suddenly die, or even if you are gradually dying, because you have done this all the time, it is easy to remember the Buddha at that time, and you don’t get reborn in lower realms. You’re totally safe if you remember the Buddha at that time. The mind is always in virtue, it is never separated from virtue, from Dharma, so it helps with that. …”


Lama Zopa Rinpoche give more advice on sleep yoga (see Lecture 9) in the transcripts of the 41st Kopan course (http://bit.ly/41st-kopan-course), lightly edited by Gordon McDougall and made available by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive. This excerpt was further edited by Mandala for inclusion on FPMT.org.

11 Reasons Your Crazy Cat Obsession Makes You Happier And Healthier


Feline fans, rejoice: Your cat isn't just a cute and cuddly ball of fluff - he's also incredibly good for your health.

Even pet owners who prefer puppies can't deny the major benefits that come along with caring for a furry friend of either species. Science shows that pets can help prevent allergies in kids, ward off respiratory infections, improve your mood and even boost self-esteem.

Whether you're a crazy cat lady or a dude ready to publicly proclaim your obsession with your feline friend, get ready to celebrate the many pros of being a proud cat owner - all negative stereotypes aside.

                                                            * * *

Here are 11 reasons we should appreciate all of the cuddly kitties in our lives.

They keep your heart healthy.

According to a 2008 study from researchers at the University of Minnesota's Stroke Institute, cat owners are less likely to die from heart attacks. Monitoring nearly 4,500 people (three out of five participants owned a cat) for a 10-year period, the researchers were able to determine that the cat owners experienced a 30 percent reduced risk of death by heart attack than the participants without cats. A 2009 follow-up study further established that cat ownership is linked to a decreased risk of death from all cardiovascular diseases, including strokes.

They practically invented napping.

These serious snoozers not only value the importance of sleep but also look adorable doing it! Studies have shown that indulging in a little midday shut-eye can work wonders for your alertness, memory, creativity, productivity and overall mood. So if you won't make time for a nap solo, maybe the opportunity to curl up next to your furry friend will convince you to take a cozy 20-minute rest today.

They don't let failure stand in their way.

No matter how many times they fall, cats always find the will to get up and try again. They have a resilient spirit, and probably know better than we do that just because you make a few mistakes doesn't mean you're incapable of achieving the success you envision for yourself in the long run. They have those nine lives for a reason.

Their purrs naturally calm your nerves.

Studies show that cat purrs can help lower their owner's stress levels as well as reduce their blood pressure. Additionally, cats can create purr vibrations from 20 to 140 Hertz, a frequency said to be medically helpful for a variety of illnesses, reported Scientific American. As if you needed one more reason to scratch behind your kitty's ears!

They're all about the present moment.

"I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them cats." - Eckhart Tolle

Sure, they lead far less stressful lives than their human counterparts on most days, but that doesn't discredit their innate ability to sit perfectly still, sometimes hours on end, and just appreciate the present moment. From their coveted spot on the windowsill to their reserved perch on top of the bookshelf, they watch the world before them come and go with ease. We, too, can reap the expanding list of benefits of a meditation practice should we decide to follow their lead.

They make you laugh harder than you ever thought possible.

Any cat owner will tell you that these creatures are as hilarious as they are cute. From playful mishaps to outright fails, it's impossible not to laugh (a little at their expense) and subsequently reap the benefits of such outbursts. Last year, researchers at California's Loma Linda University found that watching just 20 minutes of funny videos reduced subjects' cortisol levels substantially and assisted the short-term memory of older participants. Other research has linked laughter to a stronger heart and immune system.

They teach us the importance of strategic decision-making.

"If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much." - Mark Twain

Unlike their canine frenemies who leap at the chance to sprint out the front door, chase the tennis ball down the hallway or gobble up the bag of spilled treats off the kitchen floor, cats tend to pick and choose their battles more carefully. They take that extra moment to look, think and ponder from afar before deciding if the current attraction is truly worth their attention. They even move more intentionally as they climb to seemingly impossible heights and then find safe ways to get down. They are thoughtful, strategic and deliberate - all characteristics their owners value and even hope to embody themselves.

They can help people with autism communicate.

Children and adults who have autism sometimes struggle to communicate with the world around them. However, pet therapy has proven a helpful learning tool, as many people with autism feel a stronger connection to animals than they do other people. A 2012 French study observed 40 autistic children and their family pets and found that the children felt calmer and could socialize more easily than those without a pet. They associated this change with the increased production of the hormone oxytocin, which can be triggered by petting a cat and further increases feelings of trust and love.

Iris Grace Halmshaw, the 5-year-old British girl in the photo above, was diagnosed with autism in 2011. Her therapy cat Thula has helped her gain enough confidence to speak to others, as well as providing additional inspiration for her painting - another component of her therapy.

They support you in your battle with depression.

The soothing nature of petting a cat on your lap is not limited to stress relief. That tangible companionship is a known mood booster, and a positive distraction for those who struggle with depression disorders. Beyond their companionship, pets provide a way to add routine, responsibility and social activity to days that might otherwise not include such components. And while all pets can help play a role in improving depression symptoms, cats are particularly calm and peaceful, and those characteristics can be contagious for their owners in a rather helpful way.

They know it's alright to go berserk every now and then.

"A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not." - Ernest Hemingway

While cats are known for their calm and collected demeanor, they're not afraid to totally lose it - physically as well as emotionally - when the mood strikes. And as it turns out, that kind of expression can help their owners as well. A 2012 study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that bottling up negative emotions can actually prove toxic to the body, increasing the risk of death by heart disease and some cancers. Alternatively, psychologists have found that negative emotions like sadness, anxiety, anger and guilt can be powerfully positive when a person allows themselves to fully experience what they're feeling.

They crush feelings of loneliness with unconditional love.

"What greater gift than the love of a cat." - Charles Dickens

Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledge that one of the biggest benefits of a pet is their ability to ease our feelings of loneliness. They are often the best listeners we could ask for at the end of a trying day, and the looks on their faces as we walk through the front door remind us that there is always someone excited to see us. According to researchers from Miami University and Saint Louis University, pets can fulfill their owners' social needs in the same way other humans can.
