I will like to share a very touching part of the teachings of compassion from the Loving-Kindness Discourse by J. Krishnamurti:
“May all beings be joyful and secure; may
they be happy within themselves.”
Whatever living beings there be,
without exception, movable or immovable,
long or huge,
medium or small, subtle or gross.
Visible or invisible,
dwelling far or near;
born or coming to birth,
may all beings be happy within themselves.
Just as a mother protects her only child,
even at the risk of her own life;
similarly let him develop
boundless Metta (love) towards all beings.
Let his thoughts of boundless Metta (Love)
pervade the entire Universe;
above, below and across,
without any obstruction, hatred or enimity.
Whether he stands, walks or sits,
or lies down, as long as he is awake;
he should develop his mindfulness towards
infinite Metta, (Love)
this is called the Brahma dwelling here
Such a person does not fall into any
he gets established in Sila (Morality) and
Insight; he removes sensual cravings,
he never takes birth in the womb again.”
The photographs were taken in The Memorial Chorten, аlsо known аs the Thimphu Chorten, іs а chorten іn Thimphu, Bhutan. The chorten, built іn 1974 tо honor the 3rd King оf Bhutan, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck іs а prominent landmark іn the city wіth іts golden spires аnd bells.I personally love this place because Bhutanese people gather every morning and evening to pray and show their devotion to the Buddha walking around the stupa with their praying wheels and bodhi seed prayer necklace. I really like they have so much faith and they are the happiest people in the world.
