during the kora (also parikrama or pradakshina), circumambulation around the dalai lama's temple, india, i found these prayer flags next to a stupa, a place for meditation (not shown). the prayer flags are said to pass on to the wind well wishes for all sentient beings. this takes us to the "four immeasurables": (1) immeasurable love, (2) immeasurable compassion, (3) immeasurable joy, (4) immeasurable equanimity. the four immeasurables as a traditional tibetan buddhist prayer may all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness. may they be free of suffering and the cause of suffering. may they never be disassociated from the supreme happiness which is without suffering. may they remain in the boundless equanimity, free from both attachment to close onesĀ and rejection of others. more on the four immeasurables: www.padmasambhava.org/sermon/four-immesurables/ . . . #dharamshala #dharamsala #india #mcleodganj #himachalpradesh #kora #prayerflags #thefourimmeasurables #love #compassion #joy #equanimity #padmasambhava #buddhism #snapseed #withgalaxy #photooftheday
