What is the Buddhist perspective on health and safety? A thread.🍎
Buddhism is reason. It teaches that faith is not relying on an external entity to protect us.
Rather, the daily Buddhist practice of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, draws forth our inherent potential, or Buddha nature, to take action that creates value.🌱

Meaning of Swastika.

Swastika linguistically means "good existence" or "condusice to well being.
Some people consider it to be negative because of Nazis. But this is not the actual. Can we blame Max muller and his entire team? Let's first jump on to the history of Swastika.
Swastika is Indian dharmic symbol
Of #hinduism #buddhism #jainism and used in entire south east asia.
But also long before nazis it was used by westerners too as a good will. Finnland air force still used the symbol & they were a part of WW2 against nazis. So what is swastika?
We should not care much about the western interpretation coz we should always see the origin not the end. Swastika has an origin which is the origin of universe.

Emily (@emilyjmayo) here, back to introduce the focus of my next 2 threads: Emperor Kōken/Shōtoku (r. 749-758; 764-770), whose handwriting is carved in the plaque below. Here I’ll be talking about her accomplishments & textual engagement through #Buddhism. #Japan #womenshistory
The plaque at Tōshōdaiji temple 📿 (with characters “tō,” “shō,” “dai” and “ji”) shows her beautiful calligraphic hand. It appears in Kiyoko Takagi’s book (linked), part of which was translated by your resident Tweetistorian for this week, @paularcurtis
Tōshōdaiji was founded by the priest Jianzhen (688-763), who came to Japan from China in 754. He went blind before reaching Japan, but Emperor Kōken sponsored him to construct the temple, which now has a figure of Jianzhen (below) that is only open for public viewing once a year.

After much contemplation, I finally wrote about my experience with #Vipassana meditation.…

Sharing some quotes/excerpts/concepts in the thread below.
#Vipassanā in Pali means “#insight” or “seeing deeply”.

The practice of Vipassanā meditation, thus, revolves around training your mind to observe reality as it is, and not as you wish it to be. And in the process, overcome #suffering.
It is a #meditation technique that the #Buddha mastered over time and found to be the most effective in eradicating all kinds of suffering in the world.

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...

1/ I'm toying with the idea of a final stage of Progressive Summarization. #BASB
2/ Currently, the final stage is to incorporate what you've learned from your notes into a "remixed" deliverable of some kind - such as a tweet, a blog post, or a book.
3/ Of course, that's not really final within your own PKM, because the deliverable and the materials that you used to create it circulate back into your PARA notebooks.
