THE ROAD TRIP!

Back from a looooooong ROAD TRIP 😀

DELHI>DHARAMSHALA>DALHOUSIE>JAMMU>AMRITSAR>AMBALA>DELHI. 😀

So,every one can get the idea of how tired I could be! 
And here, I have got some amazing pictures to share!


DHARAMSHALA

Though GOOGLE can be a help to every one who wants a proper information here, I as it is am geographically very weak.

Dharamshala is a real popular hill station in Himachal Pradesh!
Two sections,upper and lower. My hotel was in the upper half, NADDI.


Also,Dharamshala is a kind of abode of DALAI LAMA, soon to be developed as “City of Flowers”.
Peace, this place had! You want to run away from day to day hustle? Here is where you should be!

And the locals there, are adorable! Soooooooper sweet and welcoming!


P.s.: My main attraction was the TIBETAN TEMPLE there! 
You can sit for hours there and discover your own self. Even the prayer,all the lamas chant together. Such a great feeling to just listen to it (as you can barely understand the language). 
BUDDHISM has rightly been described as the purest form of religion.


The night I reached.





The morning. 🙂
And now. The best part of the trip.
And now. The best part of the trip.

My hotel room had great view, plus the mountains by the morning were all covered by the snow, which then added more beauty to the amazing view!










The Tibetan temple.















Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. Viewing the written form of the mantra is said to have the same effect — it is often carved into stones, like the one pictured above, and placed where people can see them. 


Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel (or prayer wheel) is also believed to give the same benefit as saying the mantra, and Mani wheels, small hand wheels and large wheels with millions of copies of the mantra inside, are found everywhere in the lands influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

THE PRAYER WHEEL: SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY FROM TIBET
It is said that all the teachings of the Buddha are contained in this mantra: Om Mani Padme Hum can not really be translated into a simple phrase or sentence. 
It is appropriate, though, to say a little about the mantra, so that people who want to use it in their meditation practice will have some sense of what they are doing, and people who are just curious will understand a little better what the mantra is and why it is so important to Tibetan Buddhists. We begin in the next section with some information about the mantra itself.
