“The mind is everything. What you think you become”. Gauthama Buddha
He speaks about embracing the BALANCE in life, both in our action, words, and thought. They shape us and these are the little things we overlook at times.
Doing at work and doing in our personal lives, then, should be balanced by simply being who we are.
Here’s a picture of my visit to the second Golden Rock (Kyaikhtiyo) build on the hilltop in Sirey temple near Phuket town Kyaikhtiyo, which is not fully grounded. Some parts are hanging off the cliff. It’s a beautiful sight with the ocean at the back and was told that there are hippie people living at the corner of the river banks.
The first is in Mon State, Burma. It is a small pagoda (7.3 meters (24 ft)) built on the top of a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by its male devotees.
According to one of the legends, the Golden Rock itself is precariously perched on a strand of the Buddha’s hair. The balancing rock seems to defy gravity, as it perpetually appears to be on the verge of rolling down the hill. The rock and the pagoda are at the top of Mt. KyaiktiyoIt and it is the third most important Buddhist pilgrimage site in Burma after the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Mahamuni Pagoda.
Happy Blessed Vesak
