The position of the Buddha’s arms indicates that the hands were once held in a gesture of meditation and suggests that this sculpture represents Amitabha, a celestial Buddha who presides over his Western Paradise. Devotion to Amitabha, a major component of Chinese Buddhist practice since the sixth century, promotes the goal of rebirth in Amitabha’s Pure Land, where conditions are conducive to achieving spiritual understanding. 唐 彩繪漆金夾紵阿彌陀佛像 Buddha, Probably Amitabha (Amituofo), Tang dynasty (618–907), early 7th century.

Tranquility is a state in which we are fully aware of the rise and fall of our thoughts. We know what thoughts arise at this moment and what will come up next. All these are clear in our minds. In other words, our observation is sharp.

Jiuhuashan altitude of the highest spots, and the ten king peak is the highest among all peaks. It's so amazing😱😱

The Dharma needs to be practiced by confronting real situations. Peace and concentration do not mean that one should keep a distance from real world circumstances. Rather, they mean that, while facing any situation, one’s mind generates no distractions, lethargy, restlessness or distress.

Everybody wants a happy life, but only few know that happiness is commensurate with their hearts, i.e., the more big-hearted they are, the happier they will be.

Essay on nonviolence and vegetarianism by the renowned Buddhologist David Seyfort Ruegg (in "Buddhist Studies in Honour of Walpola Rahula," London 1980), showing how vegetarianism is closely linked with the tathāgatāgarbha (or "buddha nature") doctrine expounded in several Mahāyāna scriptures, and how within the earliest body of Buddhist scriptures abstention from the consumption of meat was at first one of the doctrines upheld by Devadatta, the Buddha's evil cousin. Although Devadatta attempted to murder the Buddha several times, he never succeeded, and upon his last attempt from so doing, having caused a drop of blood to spill from the Buddha's toe, he is said to have been swallowed from the earth and to reside now in Avīci, the most relentless, and the deepest of all hells. Although eating meat was not a practice prohibited by the Buddha in the early community, it appears as if it was not one of his landmark teachings. The adherence of Tibetan Buddhists to the earliest monastic codes, and the adoption by Chinese Buddhists of the Mahāyāna rules of conduct concerning the prohibition of meat consumption, marks one of the striking differences between Buddhism as practiced in Tibetan and in Chinese history. The Tibetans, followers of the earliest rules, eat meat. The Chinese, adhering to the rules set forth in certain Mahāyāna scriptures, refrain from doing so. #buddhism #history #historyofbuddhism #tibetanbuddhism #chinesebuddhism #vegetarian #vegan #vegetarianism #veganism #plantbased #veganlifestyle

Regard the past as empty, and take the future as illusory. The future is uncertain, depending on what we do in the present.

Carefully examine your mind. When you feel lost, it is not because there isno path across the ground, but a stubborn and narrow mind restrains you from seeing other ways or traveling one even though you see it.

Compassion doesn't mean turning a blind eye to right and wrong. Instead, it means that you clearly know when people do wrong, but do not harbor any hatred towards them. Rather, you sympathize with the wrong-doers and help them change for the better, just as parents see their children make mistakes. We reject and hate those who hurt us only because of our self-centered thinking, which makes us the same as those whom we hate.

Confucius also said in The Analects that he felt lucky because there were always people who would point out his mistakes. His student Zilu was also willing to hear criticism. Learning these excellent Confucian thoughts, how could we Buddhists not pursue even nobler mentality?

It is definitely impossible to satisfy ourselves with every outward pursuit; whereas, with inward cultivation, there is no failure.

Buddhists light incense & place them before the Buddha statue. The burning of the incense is an additional element, used to purify negatives & other kinds of offerings. 👁🎎
