How honest and dependable something visible is.
Sometimes I rewind and listen to certain sounds. And then all of a sudden, I pat my cat leaning on me.
Thinking about this, some of the stories I heard from the village I went to a long time ago come to my mind, so I want to share those.
In Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, India, there is a village called McGrath Ganz where the Tibetan government-in-exile is located in the 2,082-meter-high village and Dalai Lama, called the Living God, is living in here. You can find a Namgyal Monastery of the Tibetan Buddhist sect in the town. A long time ago, I visited the temple that had to follow the only road at the entrance to the village. At the entrance to the temple stood a line of large cylindrical prayer wheels(摩尼車) inscribed with mantra and Buddhist scriptures. prayer wheels, which was made round to be inserted and turned Buddhist scriptures, was considered to be a reading an epigram for every turn, so it was used as a representative practice and religious tools for the Tibetan people. As I entered the temple turning a few prayer wheels around like a ritual (but easily), there were ascetics laying flat and bowing and hundreds of candles to be intact on the floor. It was the place where quiet acts took place with the occasional ringing bells.
All these were considered the same behavior to seek the truth in here, and no one can judge the difference between the cheerful hands of turning prayer wheels and limbs of bowing.
In fact, you can find a sight like this everywhere very close, in the way everyone experiences it. In a world of “Mindfulness” mayonnaise comes out on the market, it may be a new realization. (Even so, it’s quite contradictory to find a response from a coin’s location to wish for a wish on a rock and a fountain. This makes me think ‘does a desire need a reasonable price?’.) People who seek deity light candles and write their names every day for their well-being and wealth. Is it just me to feel that an act of wishing like the everyday dress-up, not a desperate attempt, feels fancy? (By comparison, piling up wishing stones seems sacred) habitualized religion behavior is a kind of value exchange between a spiritual being and a believer as a consumer, putting the congregation to wear “peace”.
I feel strongly it’s a new era that divinity is becoming a fashion.
According to the teacher in my childhood, there is a hole in our heart which is no matter how great and wonderful stuffs we try but only god can fill it. Also, the Bagabard Gita one of the top three scriptures of Hinduism says, “Human is a wounded creature with nine holes”. There’s a difference between the individual methods and behavior to serve deity and absoluteity, but I think it’s a long-standing insight and deep thoughts for human beings, given the words that are human are supposed vulnerable, not to be completely filled with.
Leebinsoyeon said she often buys new spiritual products to soothe anxiety as if this era quenches its thirst with consumption. Buddhist, Catholic and Christian rosary, rings, religious symbols, etc. belong to these purchases.
She buys the stability of being in god by consuming religious products. She also said when she feels a hole in her heart, the desire for deity-or spiritual products-may be a ‘final touch’ that she sends to God or pass to her from god. Would it be our self-portrait that wanting stability or confidence in the face of anxiety? Do you also desire this touch?
As the amount of exposure to the media, the millennials are analyzed greatly and extremely than other generations, so let’s hold off judgment on them. Let’s just take a look at the scenes that have been moved like the pictures in the album.She moved the psychological landscape close to her daily life (May not be every day routine, though) to this place, as if facing a mirror. So you can call this today’s landscape.
Where is deity? A wounded heart may be the only passage in which god dwells in.
I want to ask you what’s your ‘Final Touch’ would look like in this difficult time to ‘touch’. Somehow, I think that might already be in here. I have to take a good look at it.
I light a small candle, wishing to reach you.
