Tripundra (Sanskrit: त्रिपुण्ड्र tripuṇḍra "three marks") is a Saivite tilaka, and a body art with origins in South India. It consists of three horizontal lines on the forehead, usually with a dot made from sacred ash, and has spiritual meaning in Shiva tradition within Hinduism. A Vishnu tradition related mark consisting of vertical lines is called Urdhva Pundra.
The Tripuṇḍra, three horizontal lines, on the forehead as well as other body parts are symbols during rites of passages, and for some a daily practice. These lines, states Antonio Rigopoulos, represent Shiva’s threefold power of will (icchāśakti), knowledge (jñānaśakti), and action (kriyāśakti). The Tripuṇḍra described in this and other Shaiva texts also symbolizes Shiva’s trident (triśūla) and the divine triad of Brahmā, Vishnu, and Shiva.
Tripundra, to those who apply it, is a reminder of the spiritual aims of life, the truth that body and material things shall someday become ash, and that mukti is a worthy goal. Tri means three, pundra means one which is released. There are three horizontal lines of vibhuti (holy ash) on the brow, often with a dot (bindu) as the third eye. Holy ash, usually produced from burnt cow dung, is a reminder of the temporary nature of the physical body and the importance of spiritual attainment and closeness to Shiva (Atman-Brahman). Chapter 2 of Kalagni Rudra Upanishad explains the three lines as various triads: sacred fires, syllables of Om, gunas, worlds, types of atman (Soul), powers, Vedas, the time of extraction of the Vedic drink Soma, and Mahesvara (a form of Shiva). ✨🌙🕉 Source: Wikipedia 🔱📿🙏
i haven’t dealt with a whole lot of rejection before, but the last couple months ive had one rejection after the other.
i got rejected by the school i spent a whole year working towards getting a 4.0 for, i got waitlisted then rejected by my second choice, and i got accepted then had my offer RESCINDED just 6 weeks before classes start at my third choice and had already turned down my other options, because apparently that can happen.
i was shocked and anxious for days when i realized i wouldn’t be going back to school for a while. but instead of asking why me, which could’ve been soo easy, i looked at it as a blessing, because the universe was REALLY trying to keep me away from something. rejections are just a redirection to the path you need to be on, so really it‘s saving you from wasting time on what isn’t meant to be.
i have absolutely no idea where i’m going to be 6 months from now, and it’s going to be weird not being in school for a little bit, but i can really feel something big coming. even though i was repeatedly rejected by the things i thought were my only choices, the possibilities of my next steps are actually endless. these rejections are an absolute gift, and i plan to use them well🌅

Con esa foto me despido de mis 20 añitos para dar la bienvenida a mis 21.😍
En esos últimos meses me han pasado cosas maravillosas que me han cambiado literalmente la vida.
He crecido, me he despabilado, me he caído, me he levantado, me he equivocado, he aprendido mucho y seguiré aprendiendo mucho más, pero NUNCA dejaré de ser mi mismo. Nunca perderé esa sonrisa preciosa que tengo siempre esculpida en mi cara; Nunca perderé esas ganas que tengo de vivir y de descubrir el mundo con mis propios ojos.
He tenido la suerte de conocer personas exquisitas y me gustaría llevármelas conmigo siempre en cualquier sitio yo esté. ❤
A partir de ahora cambiaré mi chip y me concentraré solamente sobre lo que más quiero realmente: realizar mi grande sueño. Ha llegado la hora de abrocharme el cinturón porque estoy listo para despegar y empezar esa nueva etapa de mi vida! ✈🌍
