Featuring - The Tibetan Mastiffs

Tibetan Mastiffs are – you got it – massive! They average about 25 inches tall at the shoulder, and on rear legs stand nearly as tall as people. A solid weight range for Tibetan Mastiffs lies between 85-140 pounds, and their sumptuous thick hide just adds to their size. This breed looks more like a lion than a canine; and in all honesty, demonstrations more like a lion or bear than a dog as well.

The Lion canines

Like bears or the lions, the Tibetan Mastiff’s demeanor is frequently depicted as standoffish. He cherishes his personal space and is profoundly defensive of his den. He’s a guard dog, above all else, and will frequently go off individually to patrol. He has his own schedule and doesn’t appreciate being instructed. As a result, these majestic canines require firm handlers.

With enough practice, and forbearance, Tibetan Mastiffs will work with their masters to come to a compromise. At the point When your Mastiff at last becomes your companion, he’ll be your defender or safeguard for life.

Ancient War Dogs

Tibetan Mastiffs have a long, storied history. Their precursors accompanied the Persians amid the rule of their empire. They vanquished landmasses by the Romans and the Huns, and antiquarians speculate Tibetan Mastiff forerunners were praised as war dogs to the point when they settled in Tibetan valleys.

In the wake of remaining detached for a considerable length of time, they became more domesticated. This shouldn't imply that they were lap puppies! In actuality, these dogs remained in homes amid the day and roamed free during the evening for the village’s protection. After some time, they became trusted and revered by villagers throughout Tibet and the Himalayas.

Twofold Layer Coats

Tibetan Mastiffs have a generally high maintenance coats. They are thick, with twofold layers, for surviving frigid climates. Some Tibetan Mastiffs have significantly thicker hair close to their neck that resembles like a lion’s mane! 

They should be brushed a couple each week to control shedding and washed when required. Furthermore, their regular shedding, sometimes called “molting”, is so immense to the point that you may need to take them to a groomer.

Tibetan Mastiffs are fierce companions that guard and secure with all that they have. Try not to give their independent nature a chance to trick you – they are the most content when close by their families.

New Year Aspirations - Confession

Medicine Buddha’s Confession Prayers
DIK TUNG KUN SHAK GE WA JANG CHUB NGO
NE DON DUK NGELDREL WAY TRASHI SHOK
JIK TEN PA NAM RANG NE BENZA MU
YE SHE DAM TSHIK LHA NAM DAK LA THIM
KA DAKKUN ZANG LONG DU. E MA HO.

English translation - Medicine Buddha’s Confession Prayers
I confess all wrong and downfalls and dedicate all virtue to awakening.
May there be the most auspicious of freedom from sickness, harmful spirits and suffering.
The worldly ones return to their own places, BENZA MU.
The Jnana and Samaya Sattvas dissolve into me.
I dissolve into the expanse of all goodness, primordial purity. E MA HO.
Purifying negativity is a basic theme of Buddhist philosophy and practice. According to the teachings of Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha of our era, each being has a mind, the basic nature of which is purity, goodness, compassion and wisdom. This basic nature, often called “Buddha Nature,” is the basis for the experience of perfect compassion and wisdom called enlightenment.

But while all beings possess this “seed of awakening, it is often obscured by negativity such as; conflicting, emotions, habitual tendencies, and the belief in a solid, permanent and 
unchanging “self ” and environment. 
These obscurations lead us to commit negative actions, which (according to the Buddha’s teachings on karma) bear fruit as the suffering of cyclic existence (called “Samsara.”). To uncover our basic nature and to stop accumulating negative karma, the Buddha taught that we should:

1. Do away with negative actions;
2. Practice virtuous actions; and
3. Tame the mind (through meditation).

On a daily basis, Buddhists strive to become more aware of their thoughts and actions and to see how those thoughts and actions shape their experience and their world. They also strive to stop performing negative actions and to purify negative actions they have already done, while at the same time strengthening positive actions, and expanding the positive actions they already are performing. 

By doing this, they eliminate negative karma (and its attendant suffering) and increase positive karma (and its attendant happiness). They also remove obscurations, allowing the Buddha nature to become more manifest.
The Practice of Confession
One of the most powerful means of purifying past negative actions and eliminating future negative actions is the practice of Confession. Shakyamuni gave teachings to his followers on the power of confession, and confession was a regular feature of the daily prayer life of his followers.

We can practice confession ourselves on a daily basis. Daily confession helps us confront our faults, become more aware of how our actions affect others, and short-circuit our habitual tendencies. As we do this, negative habits, lose their grip on us, our obscurations 
slowly lift, and we become more “in touch” with our Buddha Nature and our potential for spiritual awakening.
We make confession by reciting a confession liturgy, such as reciting the sacred Sadhanas, Sutras and Mantras.  A Special Means of Purification is to recite the Vajrasattva Mantra. In addition, the Vajrayana teachings of the Buddha contain a special means for purifying negativity is the 100-syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva.

The Mantra is composed of seed syllables that are the embodiment of 100 “families”—all of the deities of the Vajrayana. Vajrasattva (Dorje Sempa in Tibetan) has vowed that his mantra would have the power to purify even the most terrible misdeeds, it is among the most powerful means we have for purifying negative karma and obscurations. 

The Tibetan word for mantra is “ngak,” implies power, meaning that the words themselves are powerful. But our attitude and intention in saying them is crucial, as well. Any mantra can bring about purification, if you think it will. But Vajrasattva’s mantra is especially powerful and prominent.
The 100-Syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva
OM VAJRASATTVA SAMAYA, 
MANUPALAYA VAJRASATTVA,
TENOPA TISHTHA DRIDHO ME BHAWA,
SUTOKHAYO ME BHAWA, SUPOKHAYO ME BHAWA,
ANURAKTO ME BHAWA, SARWA SIDDHI ME PRAYACCHA,
SARWA KARMA SU TSA ME, TSITTAM SHREYANG KURU, HUNG,
HA HA HA HA HO, BHAGAWAN SARWA TATHAGATA,
VAJRA MA ME MUNCA, VAJRI BHAWA, MAHA SAMAYASATTVA, HA.

What makes us special makes us strong

What makes us special makes us strong
I choose goodness, integrity and dignity it does not make me weaker.
I understood that goodness is our human instinct, that is one cannot be evil, and if its a malicious, such ruthless act will be accountable by it’s own Karmic forces.

In today’s world, how could we ever comprehend more evidently about the general population who are living appropriate alongside of us? For the most part , these are the people who live like us, who appear like us, however they don’t act or behave like us.

Do we know why there are such a large number of merciless battles against each other, many individuals fight compellingly without any solid reasons. Everyone’s having its own one of a kind, very own unique culture, backdrop and distinctive religions beliefs.

Nevertheless, there are so many individuals engaging in a violence, hostile or aggression toward others for the sake of their religion.
These are the ideas of conviction of our present day society:
  • People will fight for their religion in all causes,
  • People will die for their religion in all causes,
  • Yet, unfortunately people never learn and practice their religion diligently.

Our Lord Shakyamuni Buddha taught us before, it’s all about the five Kleshas or the five toxic minds. The five toxins and its key standards are as per the following:
1) Desire
2) Anger, hatred,
3) Ignorance
4) Pride
5) Jealously, envy

These five key standards can be additionally integrated into the three key guideline toxic minds:
1) Ignorance
2) Desire
3) Hatred or anger

How to practice mindfulness and self-reflection ?
How to manage when a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or crisis?
An authentic and useful mindfulness and reflection techniques do not affect your works and daily life. You don’t need to mastermind time to practice, you can even practice when you are walking. You can take a shot at walking and be aware of the movement onto the foot as the body pushes ahead and to stroll around at any speed.

Watch your progression and walk gradually and breath in normally. Besides, in reality it can be balanced for strolling around the street, similarly the length of you recall to concentrate in the city lights, different people, and not taking after a machine. This is to evacuate our look and helps you look after core interest.

The practice concentrates on your breaths, breathing in and out tenderly and be mindful. Being mindfulness has helped us to acquire comprehension of how our contemplation interface with. At whatever time, wherever can fundamentally by doing 10 minute reflection and contemplation.

By doing 10 minute reflection and contemplation. Any changes of reality, its inside the methodology of contemplation. This is known as the self reflection. A reflection helps every one of us with understanding our heart, conduct and end up being more prepared and aware of the consistent changes in life.
A reflection, similar to you are taking a gander at the mirror and it mirroring your self, however the mirror itself stay untouchable by any progressions or development. What is touchable is reflecting or looking like of our contemplation.

Take the Dharma as a mirror and investigate yourself, take the Dharma as a scale and measure yourself well before you realize that you are good or evil, otherwise it cannot be distinguished and recognized. People are selfish arrogance, the eyes see is the shortcomings and inadequacies of others, are their own preferences, they cannot see the benefits of others, but see their own problems.

So constantly accuse others, and do not have the foggiest idea about their own missteps, will not consider each other’s emotions, only consider their own sentiments. In order to practice the mindfulness and reflection meditation, we ought to cultivate these practices daily.
For instance, in the wake of getting up in the morning, you can meditate and reflect for 10 minutes to half an hour. Sit well after the first exhaled out: Inhale, then accompanied by breath, the possibility of the toxic substance minds, such as greed, hatred, ignorance and other negative toxins thoughts from the nostrils exhaled out of the body; this row three times. At that point, unobtrusively stay quiet for some time.

Do not underestimate the more than 10-minute practice, from here to get more settled, will give you an entire day attitude input positive vitality, play a good role in adjusting.
Before going to bed at night, it’s best to meditate for a few minutes. At this time meditation, like through massage to remove the physical fatigue, gently sit for a while, the inner exhaustion and clutter vanish. It can be said that this is a psychological massage that help us to free from stress and anxiety mentally and physically.

Confronting challenges make you strong and resilient

Confronting challenges make you strong and resilient
It is difficult to in a world of increasing challenges. The world becomes more complex and changes rapidly. Sometimes it's not easy to stay calm.

Challenges and difficulties are a part of day-to-day existence. They make us stronger and without them life becomes some degree of trivial because we don't have anything to contrast the greater circumstances with. 

These challenges and difficulties come in many structures. For a few, the challenge is doing admirably at school, for others it is getting to grip with financial worries. But, paying little respect to the challenge, looking up to it is critical. 

Doing as such will influence you to feel like you can manage yourself, it will likewise influence you to comprehend the value of what you have now. Looking up to challenges and living through them gives us the experiences that make up our lives.
Everyone experiences times when their lives appear to be enormously unpleasant, or their issues unconquerable. In any case, it's critical take into consideration that, whatever the issue, there is practically often an answer. Confronting challenges in an approach to drive ourselves and see what we are capable of.

Correspondingly, when we think again about intense circumstances, we can be satisfied for how we managed the challenge and counseled ourselves that life improves and challenges don't seem to be generally offensive or dreadful. 
Preside over your challenges conventionally.
Keeping tranquil under apprehensiveness. When a situation begins to appear, you feel your emotions are furious and don't lose control. Calm down rather than escape resentfully because you can't handle it. 

When you are never again impulsive and overreacting, you have greater opportunity to measure your decisions and find the most intelligent path forward.
In the heart of 10, it looks trite, but it works. Pause, take a deep breath and think carefully before you react emotionally to something.

Composing your thoughts in a journal can help you clear things up and keep you calm. If you need to settle on an important decision, or you feel sad about something, keep your emotions in words, and then read and reflect.

Challenging yourself to achieve better on a test, run faster in a race or gain some new useful knowledge can be very amusing! Why not give yourself a fun challenge today? For what reason not give yourself a fun challenge today?

What Changed Tibet Today

What Changed Tibet Today
A journey to a mysterious Himalaya snow land and its unique Vajrayana Buddhism and the threatening culture. Tibetan culture and identity is inseparably linked to Tibetan Buddhism. 

October 1950 nearly 70 years after the invasion of China, the Chinese government has changed the iron hand, at least in public, with the silk gloves of the economical modernization. The carrot has replaced the bat, as the development could end with the Tibetans accepting the facts valid since 1951. 
The autonomous province, with estimated 3-4 million Tibetans and about four times bigger than France, has changed in the last 15 years. The mighty Potala palace, winter residence of His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama since the 17th century, has remained approximately unchanged. But Lhasa has changed.

These days, large parts of the city of Lhasa has changed rapidly and increasingly like any modern Chinese city, with hundreds of old buildings and villages knocked down to make way for new shopping malls and apartments for immigrants. 

Nowadays, the Tibetans have to adjust and adapt to a new flood of arrivals of domestic and foreign tourists, after China opened a new train route across the high altitude Tibetan Plateau, from  Xining to Lhasa in 2006.
Tibet today

Tourists flying high to ‘the roof of the world'
The Tibet region’s airports received 3.15m visitors last year and the number of tourists has grown by as much as 30 per cent each year

Tibet is rich in tradition and  Tibetans lifestyles that have changed over the generations. It is also a modern country with many urban Tibetans living busy city lives. Communications are very important for Tibetans and the use of mobile phones and the internet is extensive, including in some of the most remote parts of Tibet. 
Lhasa, the capital of southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region, is one of 24 famous historical and cultural cities declared by the China State Council. In recent years, Tibet's tourism has expanded rapidly, especially after the completion of Qingzang Railway.

Tourism is the new engine power tool for development in Tibet. Tibet received more than 20 million tourists for the first time in 2015, representing 190-per cent growth from five years ago. Tourism revenue reached 28.19 billion yuan (£3.42 billion) in the same year, equal to 27.5 percent of Tibet's GDP.

By 2020, estimated there will be 240 million tourists coming to Lhasa, generating 29.8 billion yuan in tourism revenue. Besides, Lhasa will become the only one International tourist, cultural city of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.  
Statistics from Lhasa's tourism Bureau
  1. In 2006 -2007 Tibet received 7 million tourists, including 1 million foreigners. Tibet has generated a tourism income of 2.29 billion Chinese yuan.
  2. In 2010, Tibet received 6.85 million tourists from home and abroad, generating revenues of 7.14 billion yuan, 14 percent of its total GDP.
  3. In 2011 -2012 Tibet received 19 million domestic and foreign tourists.
  4. In 2015 Tibet received more than 20 million domestic and foreign tourists.
  5. In first half of 2016 Tibet received a record of 6.8 million tourists domestic and foreign tourists. Tourism revenue during the period increased by 32.1 percent year on year to 7 billion yuan ($1.05 billion), according to a statement issued by the regional tourism development commission. 
By 2020, there will be 240 million tourists coming to Lhasa, generating 29.8 billion yuan in tourism revenue. Besides, Lhasa will become the only one International tourist, cultural city of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
China's One Belt One Road Initiative (BRI)
Navigating a world of new opportunities through China's One Belt One Road Initiative (BRI)
Bridging the 'infrastructure gap' in Asia and beyond. The Belt and Road Initiative is expected to bridge the infrastructure gap and thus accelerate and infrastructure-driven economic growth across the Asia Pacific area and Central and Eastern Europe. 

What is Tibet and China’s 'one belt and one road initiative?
In more recent times, China’s “One Belt, One Road” (OBOR) policy – China plan to expand the reach of Chinese trade routes to Europe through a land route in Central Asia and a sea route through the Indian Ocean and around the horn of Africa – has taken center stage as a cornerstone of modern Chinese foreign policy. Access to Pakistan and Central Asia are crucial to ensure the success of these trade routes, which incidentally must start or pass through Tibet.

China’s railway expansion in Tibet. China announced plans to extend a railway line linking Tibet with the rest of the country to the borders of India, Nepal and Bhutan by 2020. China opened its 1,142 km railway line from Golmud in its Qinghai province to Tibet’s capital Lhasa in 2006. 
The 253 km Lhasa-Shigatse link, which includes 13 stations with altitudes ranging from 3,600 to 4,000 metres, is the largest investment project in the Tibet Autonomous Region in the 12th Five-Year Plan.

The Economist in June this year, published a report about over 7.5 million passengers rode the railway from Golmud to Lhasa in 2013 alone — more than the entire population of Tibet itself.  China will spend about $17.6 billion for a second rail link to northwestern Xinjiang, Uighur, its major coal production region near Tibet.

Live for it – Epic Journey

Live for it – Epic Journey 

In order to live for it , we must go for it.

Life is a journey that one should paying a notable heed to how extreme and outrageous the path could be. 

Sometimes uneventful will reliably be a serendipitous and astounding us completely, yet on the other hand when so frequently in the event that we have everything under an extensive measure of control, we are literally and essentially can't move rapidly and swiftly.
Do whatever it takes not to judge others how they have chosen their journey, in the event that you haven’t walked the comparative way yourself.
