Sparkle #150: Buddhist Prayers for Peace

Happy Monday folks! We are soon going to enter the most wonderful time of the year, but my mind is still restless with the events of the last few days. How does one stay positive and peaceful during times of distress? I find that chanting really calms me down, and so for today’s post, I wanted to share some of my favorite chants and prayers with you, hoping they will help you find peace and positivism in the days to come. My favorite chant is a famous Buddhist mantra which I picked up during my visit to Leh called “Om Mani Padme Hum“. It is one of the easiest Buddhist chants one can practice in…

Week 39: Dragon Tales

Title: Dragon Tales Location: South Extension, Delhi, India Date: 27 September 2015 “The Dragon thunders in the sky with the sound of compassion that awakens us from delusion and increases what we can know through hearing. Dragons have the power of complete communication. Just as we do not see sound, we do not see dragons – at least not usually. Displaying a dragon banner is said to protect one from slander and enhances one’s reputation. It’s main quality is power, dominance over the sea, and the water element.” Source: View on Buddhism

Trip of a Lifetime: Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh: Part 1

Hello wonderful people and happy Sunday! I woke up feeling real good this morning. It could be because it’s Sunday, or because we have amazing (rainy) weather, or simply because today is the anniversary of my maiden trip to Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh in 2013. If I call Paris my teenage crush, then Kashmir is definitely my first love! I undoubtedly have the travel bug, I fall in love with places in an instant. I was 8 years old when I first discovered the beauty of Kashmir while participating in an art project. It was on my travel list for a long time before I finally got the chance to…

Week 25: One Day, Many Meanings

Title: One Day, Many Meanings Location: Hotel Avasa, Hyderabad Date: 21 June 2015 Today, 21st June, is International Day of Yoga, World Music Day and Father’s Day. I decided not to do a specific post on any of these themes, because for me all three should be an important part of our lives every single day! We don’t need a special day to celebrate our fathers, do Yoga or listen to music. Having said that, dedicating a day to celebrate something is a good reminder of why it is important in our lives. So I hope you took some time today to wish your dad, practice some…

Sparkle #20: Zen Living

Hello happy people! I love the month of February – the changing weather, cool air, winter blooms, and the abundance of love – it is all so magical! This time of the year makes me pause and think, slow down a little, appreciate the little things in life and cultivate hope and happiness for the year to come. So to capture this feeling of peace and mindfulness, I decided to do a round-up of top zen habits we should cultivate for a happy life. It is absolutely impossible for me to cover all the advice available on the web, so if you want your daily dose…
