My Perspective of Life and Religion


Leaving behind normal life would only mean you would encounter fewer problems or you wouldn’t face any problem you face in normal life. In a way it is like running away from your life because you cannot deal with it. I was born in a Buddhist society and I believe too strongly in the karmic consequences. I feel that, being away from normal life would mean leaving behind the desires. Whenever I get time, I get down at the Buddhist Stupa and circumambulate it. I go there with my mother during weekends. (She goes there everyday).



When you are away from the entire desire invoking world, I think you get an inner view from within your mind that makes you realize what life really is. Probably, then you know that life is not about fancy cars and parties, neither about your loved ones and relatives. It is about how you look at life and how you tackle with things that come with it. I read but haven’t read extensively to understand anything worthy. But from my personal view, I think that life is not about what religion you follow, what kinda of family you are born to and which country you are from, but it is about your attitude that looks at and binds other people and things with respect to you and yourself with respect to them. Only when you feel that everything is independent and relative do you get the feeling of care, love, guilt and pain.



Note* it is a conversation I had with one of my friends.

My Home is no more

My parents worked so hard to first get a land where they could farm. Then they worked so hard to build a house of their own. Their hard work paid. They made a name for themselves. They built two houses; more if we are to count the houses they help build for their children. But for what?

We could argue that if they did not work that hard, their children -- my siblings and I could be doing something different, and earning our living in a different way. They worked hard--all for us. They taught us humility. One thing that rings in my mind still to this day is that, we are humble people and we should always remain humble. I could say we have lived it.

What hit me hard was this picture that my eldest brother sent me from my village:



I cannot believe that the place that I called home and the place that lives in me has become like this. I had to look at this picture again and again -- closely. The landscape itself looks changed and it is nothing like I remember from my childhood. Our home, t…

Dechen in K2

Dechen was in K2, Kuensel on August 2, where daycare centres and early childhood development was covered. I just thought putting about it here would help me keep record about it.

So bogged down to add anything more at the moment. I can only say that I am a proud mother.

But first you must have this contact list in excel format or in some form of list on your computer.
1. If you have the contact list in the excel format, convert it into csv format 2. Now convert it into VCF format online on this link: http://www.artistec.com/pages/CSV2vCard.html
2. Follow the instruction on this link
3. Once you have the output of your contact list on that link in the VCF format, copy and paste it in a notepad
4. Save it with the file extension .vcf
