❣️What is the difference between being attached to other people and loving them?❣️ 📿With attachment, we overestimate other people’s qualities, thinking that they are better than they actually are. Also, we care about them because they please us: they give us presents, praise us, help and encourage us, etc. What we ordinarily call love is usually just attachment. 📿With attachment, we do not see people for who they are and thereby develop many expectations of them: they should be like this, they should do that, etc. Then, when they do not live up to what we thought they were or should be, we are hurt, disillusioned, and blame them.
With genuine love, we care for other people and want them to be happy not because they please our ego and desires, but just because they exist. Real love does not expect anything from others in return. We accept people for who they are and still try to help them, but we are not concerned at all with how we will benefit from the relationship. 📿Real love is not jealous and possessive. Rather, it is impartial and is shared with all beings. #love#attachment#buddhism#youarewhoyouare#beyourself#selfimprovement

We should face pain. Be responsible. With pain, you see the impermanent of body and mind, the truth of six realms. Pain let you be kind to others as you have empathy.
The Bongeunsa Temple was founded in 794 during the reign of King Wonseong of the Silla Dynasty.
It became the cornerstone of the revival of Korean Buddhidm as the head temple of the Korean Seon (Zen in Japanese, Chan in Chinese) lineage owing greatly to the religious devotion of the Venerable Bowoo.
For #PeaceDay I would like to introduce you to Avalokitesvara. Avalokitesvara is a bodhisattva, or enlightened being, who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. Avalokitesvara is depicted throughout East and Southeast Asia as either male or female, and is one of the most widely revered bodhisattvas in Buddhism.
One story states that Avalokitesvara vowed never to rest until all the people of the world had found nirvana. After struggling to save so many, his/her head split into eleven pieces. Buddha, seeing his/her plight, gave him/her eleven heads with which to hear the cries of the suffering. Upon hearing these cries, Avalokitesvara attempted to reach out to all those who needed help, but found that his/her two arms were not enough. Once more, Buddha came to his/her aid and gave him/her a thousand arms with which to aid the suffering.
This painting by Pema Thendue was commissioned by Captain John Baptist Lucius Noel (1890-1989) in Tibet in 1924. Noel was a mountaineer and filmmaker who is best known for his participation in the 1924 Mount Everest expedition.
This desire, this intention(for intimate connections of love), can be intensified through meditation and visualization, so that you may see your heart chakra glowing brightly in the green-ray vibration of color, seeing this glow of green love and light expanding outward to those about one, to those closest—nearest and dearest, shall we say—moving further outward until there is a connection eventually with every other entity upon the entire planet. This is possible, because as you know, you are all One, you are like cells in the body of the One Infinite Creator. All you need do is visualize these connections that exist. It is not so much a visualization as it is realization that such is true.
Namo Sanghyang Adi Buddhaya, Namo Buddhaya.
