MEDITATION

Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content, or as an end in itself.

The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts. Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way.

Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease many health concerns, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. It may be done sitting, or in an active way — for instance, Buddhist monks involve awareness in their day-to-day activities as a form of mind-training. Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of the training.

IOTD …. “Image of the Day”, #138!!


Mand

~~January 28, 2015~~ 

Mandala (‘circle’) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe. The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the general shape of a T. Mandalas often exhibit radial balance.

The term is of Sanskrit origin.

In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

BEYOND: LOVE WITHIN

TINA TURNER
Love is inside all of us – Everyone has it deep within

REGULA CURTI
My wish is to open hearts for unconditional giving and love in action

DECHEN SHAK-DAGSAY
Our wish is to give back the love and kindness of all our mothers

SAWANI SHENDE-SATHAYE
Mankind is the only true religion on earth, love and peace are its true pillars

Music3

LOVE WITHIN is a praise to the Divine Mother, to the goddesses and saints like Tara, Mother Mary and Parvati, to the female power within all of us. In mothers you find unconditional love and compassion sparkling in the purest form. Inner values like patience, tolerance, forgiveness, understanding and unconditional love are human qualities we all share, male or female, religious and non-religious.

For their album Love Within – Beyond, famous Rock- and Soul legend Tina Turner together with swiss sopranist and music therapist Regula Curti joined again with Tibetan mantra singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay and for this project for the first time also with Indian singer Sawani Shende-Sathaye. Love Within – Beyond merges prayers and chants from the Buddhist-, Christian- and Hindu-traditions in ancient languages such as Latin, Aramaic, Sanskrit, Hindi, Brij and Tibetan. The music covers a wide range of styles and instruments: from western Gospels to traditional Indian music, from Tibetan bells and soundbowls, Indian drums, Sitars and an aramaic Doudouk all the way to a swiss Alpenhorn.

WHY BEYOND RELIGION

Time has come to find a new way to experience spirituality and ethics that is beyond religion and any other belief system. Values like love, compassion, tolerance, patience and forgiveness are simply human values. Music is the universal language to bridge and to unite people.

OUR MISSION

With our music we invite and encourage people around the globe to search for the positive inner qualities of the human heart that arise from our core disposition toward love and compassion. May the Beyond music inspire people for „love in action“ for a peaceful and compassionate world.

~~BEYOND: LOVE WITHIN~~

~~Published on Apr 17, 2014~~

Beyond features four women from different faiths and cultures: Regula Curti, a Christian from Switzerland; Dechen Shak-Dagsay, a Buddhist from Tibet; Sawani Shende-Sathaye, a Hindu from India and TINA TURNER, a self-styled “Buddhist-Baptist” from Nutbush, Tennessee.

Beyond’s third album “Love Within” adds Hindu prayers and traditional Indian music to the cross-cultural combination of Christian and Buddhist music, mantras and prayers. It features a wide variety of instrumental textures – from Tibetan bells and bowls to Indian drums and sitars, an Armenian doudouk and even a Swiss alphorn.
