Tibet – the highland in China

Longing to visit Tibet for the past 20 years and I finally got a chance to be there in April…

My original target was only the Potala Palace in Lhasa given that it’s the most famous place in Tibet.  Surprisingly, I’ve found there are a lot of natural beauties around areas like Linzhi: the blossom of peach trees, the thousand years glacier, the snow mountains, the lakes, just to name a few.

The Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, the religious centre of Tibet is a must go for us to understand how Tibetan worship their gods!

Last but not the least, we visited the Potala Palace, the centre of power in Tibet…  There are too many things we can learn from this palace, it’s history, it’s art, it’s culture, it’s precious collections, it’s religious background, it’s architecture…

You can only be there to taste it… 🙂

 

Good morning from Phnom Penh 

Saturday morning in Phnom Penh, there are a lot of activities in front of the Palace…

Sunrise from riverside… 
Doggie leading yoga exercise…  
Selling lotus for worship… 
People are lining up to worship in the temple, so as the birds… 😄 
Yet this guy is still sleeping… He must be exhausted!  

Edge & Alignment

One of the best example in alignment can be found in the traditional Chinese temple… This temple was built more than 100 years ago in Macau.  Gold and red are the colors for good luck and happiness.  The two soldiers on the door were here to guide the temple.  The four characters on the top is the name of the temple.  The two rhyming couplets shared the greatness and importance of the temple in this area.
