Exquisite Ruby-Eye Buddha/Shwedagon Pagoda

Postby yawares » Mon Dec 17, 2012 3:19 pm

Dear Members,

Today my daughter called from her top-secret Air Force Base, no bad news made me/Tep feel so good. Tep always emails her how to meditate and I email her Buddha's verses. I used to cry each time she called when she was in Afghanistan for 6 months(years ago). Now I don't cry anymore, Buddha's dhamma truly helps me how to cope with departing from someone I love the most.

So today I would like to share this exquisite Buddha statues/Shwedagon Pagoda with my daughter and you all (YES..I'll email this post to my daughter..she loves Dhamma Wheel too) :heart: ...Many many pictures in this post!

Lovely photos, Yawares!
I was in Burma two years ago. One of the many highlights was meditating at Shwedagon Paya at dawn.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Dear Ben,

Oh, sadhu sadhu sadhu!! You're so lucky to visit the great Shwedagon Pagoda!

I was such a sad person, because I learned about Thai/Burma wars history in school...so I never like Burma. I only dreamed of
touring Europe/USA/Japan/Singapore ..so like heavens to me.

Nowaday, my best dhamma friend is a Burmese doctor who's so wonderful with Buddha's dhamma/Pali and because of him going to Yangon to pay homage to the Ruby-Eye Buddha/Shwedagon...I started to look into all the beautiful Buddha statues/Pagodas and posted them for all members to see. I must thank Yahoo from my :heart: for providing all the wonderful/impressive pictures !!
