My new #Tattoo is a symbol called #UNALOME. ✨☸️💟☮️✨In the #Buddhist tradition, Unalome represents the #path each person takes throughout their #life. That road can be straight, circular, or winding. It might be filled with anxiety, fear, terror, happiness, or love. This path begins at the center of a spiral, which represents the way we're trapped in our own weakness, fear, and uncertainty. As the path unfolds, the mind finds clarity, eventually freeing itself from the cycles of suffering. When you learn to see yourself from a more objective standpoint, you'll realize you're attached to a web of emotions that cloud your mind. However, since we are merely human beings who tend to commit the same mistakes over and over again, it is not easy to abandon that cycle. That's what the spiral represents, that inability of letting ourselves go completely. The pursuit of #enlightenment is what straightens the line of the spiral. This symbol is a visual metaphor of that journey: the ultimate goal and culmination of our search for #awareness.
This tattoo shouldn't be a cheap attempt to portray your #spirituality, but a reminder of our human condition and how we, metaphorically, keep moving forward to become better humans. #Namaste #inkedgirls #concoiusness #like4like #likeforfollow #instalike #l4l #F4F

A wee timelapse of the way down from the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. I could write PAGES about my #struggle trying to film this walking down the steep hill and not falling or jogging my phone or how many times I had to start again 😂. It’s not the best, but it’s the best I could get out of my dwindling patience. So much to see, so little time and so many buddhas. 🏃‍♀️ #namaste #hk #hongkong #hkiger #hkig #hkigers #explore #explorer #tourist #buddha #buddhism #buddhist #monastery #girlswhotravel #travel #wanderer #wanderlust #timelapsevideo #timelapse #hill #walk #green #gold

Buddhist Koan:

One day, Chan Master Nanyue Huairang of the Tang Dynasty paid a visit to Chan Master Songshan An and asked him, “What is the meaning of the patriarch coming to the West?” Songshan An asked in return, “Why don’t you ask yourself?” Huairang then asked, “What is the meaning of self?” Songshan An replied, “Pure contemplation and wondrous function.” Huairang inquired, “What is the wondrous function?” Chan Master An instructed him by opening and closing his eyes.
At that moment, Huairang had a great awakening.
