FLUTTERING SYMBOLS

The All seeing Eyes of Lord Buddha on a Stupa in Ladakh.

Interesting to note is the Crescent Moon a Symbol used by Tantrics in Hinduism or from Islam ?

The Tantric traditions of Tibetan Buddhism borrow the Trishul of Lord Shiva worshipped by Hindus.

This is in continuation of the post yesterday titled HIMALAYAN SYMBOLS.

The Enchanting Colourful Prayer Flags are all over and are in sharp contrast to the Beautiful but Arid High Altitude Desert that is Ladakh. ( the featured image says this better than my words)

  1. ASSEMBLY OF GOD IN HINDUISM

    By Promod Puri

    Besides His numinous and varied perceptions God also offers a meaningful perspective which can be created by the assembly of good thoughts. And the divine residency begins in that on-going construction.

    Basically it is an eloquent temperament we are trying to build which gives rationality and practicality to the institution of God.

    The ecumenical concept of God of being the supreme governor who creates, sustains and destroys the universe, and everything else including what influences our lives, does not reveal the reasons behind all the puzzles and mysteries of His or Her observable deeds.

    In other words our perception of God as being a creator with His mystical powers which sustains the universe, can not comprehend many universal and natural phenomenons.

    One reason is that man is just one of the millions of creatures who in actuality is microscopic in His infinite and colossal universe. Still our imaginations and metaphysical attempts know no boundaries to fathom His magnanimity.
