“Seeing the happiness in the eyes of the Syrian refugee children is just priceless. We started our journey to happiness with making others happy.”
Why not celebrate and share this? You might just inspire someone to do some good today! ^_^
Below is a video by National Geographic on the ouija board.
The ouija (/ˈwiːdʒə/ WEE-jə), also known as a spirit board or talking board, is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0–9, the words “yes”, “no”, “hello” (occasionally), and “goodbye”, along with various symbols and graphics.
So what moves the planchette? Is it really spirits from beyond? Ghosts of our loved ones, demons, gods? Some religions consider the ouija board to be occult and dangerous and have even banned their followers from using it. Is it really dangerous? Who are we reaching out to with the ouija board?
Watch the video clip below and find out.
A Hindu temple in Nepal has ended a centuries-old tradition of animal sacrifice, thanks to animal activists, India’s supreme court and the temple management’s wisdom.
Compassion: 1 Animal Sacrifice: 0
Nepalese temple authorities agreed to cancel the centuries-old Hindu tradition following a campaign from Humane Society International (HSI) and Animal Welfare Network Nepal (AWNN).
In a statement, Gadhimai Temple Trust Chairman, Mr Ram Chandra Shah, said: “The time has come to transform an old tradition. The time has come to replace killing and violence with peaceful worship and celebration.”
Ullambana is just around the corner, and every year, kind and thoughtful devotees would do offerings to the sangha to support us in our basic amenities and in our Dharma work.
One item that is often donated is shavers. In most cases, it is better to simply donate the refills, ‘cos we most likely already have the handle and just need shaver cartridge refills.
If you look at the packing, look out for the one with refills. Else we end up with a lot of spare handles and limited shaving cartridges.
Thank you so much!
