Tibetan Buddhist monks Create Mandalas Using Millions of Grains of Sand-The Mystical Arts

Imagine the amount of patience that’s required to create such highly detailed art such as this! To promote healing and world peace, a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks, from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India, travel the world creating incredible mandalas using millions of grains of sand. For days or even weeks, the monks spend up to eight hours a day working on one mandala sand painting, pouring multicolored grains of sand onto a shared platform until it becomes a spectacular piece of art.

its not mentioned here but after days or weeks of creating the intricate pattern of a sand mandala, the sand is brushed together into a pile and spilled into a body of running water to spread the blessings of the mandala. its a form of meditation.

im so pro-selfie like there are so many bigger problems in the world than girls who think theyre pretty

one of those problems is girls who dont think theyre pretty

One day, a long time from now you’ll cease to care anymore whom you please or what anybody has to say about you.

Things I will never get: cheating.

Cheating with someone else while you go home to your partner while pretending everythings fine.

Obviously, there’s something wrong with your relationship. You’re either lacking something, you’re not happy or you’re just an utter and complete douchebag/jerk/selfish person (I’m talking about men and women).

Ok, you’re cheating on your partner, good for you for unlocking the “I can’t control myself, I’m an ass but I don’t care cuz I’m selfish and no one will find out in my genius mind” badge. It can happen, because we’re selfish, lust seeking humans.

But what I absolutely don’t and never will get is; why cheat and continue a relationship with someone!? Why tell the world that everythings fine when it’s obviously not. It’s cool that you lie to yourself, but does your loved one deserve it? If he/she does, well.. There’s a classier way to deal with that, but ok, revenge can be very very sweet, even if it doesn’t make you the better person.

Still.

It’s disrespectful, degrading, and hurtful for your partner. If you’re not happy in your relationship, then talk about it. There’s always a solution, there’s always a better way to handle a bad relationship. And if you cheat while you’re happy in your current relationship, then you’re just a child, who doesn’t know what loving means and you need to grow up. You don’t deserve a good and loyal partner.

If anyone ever cheats on me, I’d be done with you without any hesitation. It may have been different a few years ago, but I respect myself way to much to let this pass under the excuse “I will forgive you, because I love you” Fuck that.

Genius Duke project calls out the offensive phrases we say every day

The normalization of homophobic and misogynistic language, especially among young people, is nothing new. But while there may be a growing awareness of the problem, there haven’t been many organized initiatives dedicated to eradicate these types of problematic expressions — until now. Enter Duke University’s campaign “You Don’t Say,” which is an effort to remind students that language is powerful, and that word choice has consequences. 

The Duke project uses photos to show how casual slurs like “no homo,” “tranny,” “that’s so gay” and “you’re such a pussy” target women and the LGBT community. In the series, Blue Devils students explain why they have adjusted their language.
