Nepal is a beautiful country of mountains. The customs and traditions in Nepal differ from place to place. Nepal is a country with many different cultures and religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Jainism, and Sikhism. Most of the people of Nepal are Hindu or Buddhist and they have lived together for hundreds of years. Gautam Buddha preached the importance of improving the physical and mental conditions of human life. He believes that it is the mind that must be calm and safe. Buddha is one of the great pride of Nepal and he is responsible for the initiation of Buddhism all over the world. Nepal is a country that is proud to be the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, the light of Asia. Buddhists and Hindus in Nepal revere Gautam Buddha. The Buddhist pilgrimage is a journey for a better understanding of the moral and spiritual beliefs of Buddhism. People travel mainly to learn more about Buddhism and connect with its history. To see sites where miracles happened, connect with their spirits, and receive blessings. The Buddhist pilgrimage in Nepal covers many holy places such as the Buddhanath stupa, Swambhunath stupa, Namo Buddha, World Peace Pagoda, Lumbini Buddha's birthplace, and hundreds of monasteries.submitted by alphaannapurna to u/alphaannapurna [link] [comments]
. Swayambhunath Stupa
Swambhunath is considered one of the most beautiful Buddhist stupas in Nepal. It is three kilometers west of Kathmandu. The history of the stupa dates back to ancient times. It is the oldest of its kind, surrounded by many temples and monasteries. The earliest written record of the Great Stupa of Swayambhunth is a 5th-century stone inscription. Swayambhunath Stupa, also known as the Monkey Temple, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The eyes and eyebrows painted on the stupa represent the compassion and wisdom of the Buddha. It gives peace, freedom, joy, and even spiritual liberation.
. Bouddhanath Stupa
The Boudhanath stupa is an important place of pilgrimage and meditation. It is located 11 kilometers northeast of Kathmandu. The large mandala of the Buddhanath stupa makes it one of the largest circular stupas in the world. There are many Tibetan gompas around Buddha. The large meditation monument built around the 14th century is believed to have been created immediately after Buddha's death. The Buddha Stupa has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. Devotees wander around the gleaming white dome and go to the nearby monastery for prayers.
UNESCO World Heritage site Lumbini is a famous Buddhist pilgrimage site in the Rupandehi region of Nepal. This is where Gautam Buddha was born. It has many ancient temples including the Mayadevi temple and many other new temples sponsored by Buddhist groups from different countries.
Mayadevi Temple: Maya Devi is an ancient Buddhist temple that is the main temple of Lumbini. This is the site believed to be where Queen Mayadevi gave birth to Gautam Buddha around 563 BC. The temple is located near the lake and the sacred garden.
Mayadevi Pond: It is located in front of the Maya Devi Temple. The Maya Devi Pond is a rectangular structure with steps around it to reach the water level. Also known as Puskarini, this is where Gautama Buddha's mother - Maya Devi - bathed. In fact, Lord Buddha's first bath was taken in this lake. A large temple now occupies the birthplace of Buddha, and the Maya Devi pond is in front of the temple. On special occasions, oil lamps are used to light the steps around the pond at sunset to worship the shrine. Therefore the pond has not only religious significance but also great historical significance.
World Peace Pagoda: This monument is designed and built by the Japanese. The golden statue represents the place where the Buddha is believed to have been born. It is also known as the Japan Peace Stupa which is one of the largest stupas in the world built by Japanese Buddhists.
Myanmar Temple: The Golden Temple of Myanmar is one of the oldest structures in Lumbini Park, with Burmese-style architecture. The stupa-like temple has a large shikhara (tower) inspired by Bagan temples and is painted in golden color. Inside the temple, there are three prayer pillars and the Lokamani Pula pagoda.
Ashoka Pillar: Ashoka Pillar is a 3rd-century stone pillar built by Emperor Ashoka. It was built as a symbol of respect by Ashoka when he visited the birthplace of Lord Buddha and decided to embrace Buddhism. This fact makes the column an interesting thing in the country.
Bodhi Tree: The Bodhi Tree is located next to the Mayadevi Temple and Maya Devi Pond. Buddhist monks often sit under the tree to meditate and chant spiritual scripts. The tree is a Peepal tree which is hundreds of years old and is dressed in beautiful flags, locals believe that wishes are often granted by tying beautiful prayer flags. The meaning of this tree is due to the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya where the Buddha attained enlightenment and freedom from delusion, anger, and selfishness. The Buddha's life journey is often associated with the tree - from the time he abdicated his throne, became an ascetic, gained knowledge, and taught until his death. That is why the Bodhi tree is considered very important in Buddhism.
. Namo Buddha
It is 40 kilometers from Kathmandu city center in the Kavre district. It is a beautiful place. Namo Buddha is a small town where Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery is located, one of the holiest shrines in the world. The environment is clean and pure, so the air is fresh and healthy. You can see snow-capped mountains and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Buddhism is a symbol of peace. Pilgrimage is a spiritual journey. Not only will you connect with history but also beautiful scenery along the way.

2023.05.28 05:36 JoshAsdvgi STORY OF THE MINK
submitted by JoshAsdvgi to Native_Stories [link] [comments]
STORY OF THE MINK (BORN-TO-BE-IN-THE-SUN)
Tum-Tum had been digging for clams in the sand and catching baby crabs in the pools of water left by the outgoing tide.
He was tired and was making his way to one of the whale canoes along the beach to lie down and rest.
A long shadow from a high mountain in the west which would cool the afternoon air.
Lying down on a bear-skin blanket he soon was on his way to slumber land where his ancestors dwelt.
Tum-Tum then heard someone approaching singing a song to the rhythm of their paddle.
"Oh my paddle steer me to shore
As the times you have done before
I seek "Born-To-Be-In-The-Sun"
My boy, my boy, my only one."
He peeped from the bow of the canoe and spied a woman as she stepped on the beach and came toward where he was hiding.
As she approached Tum-Tum asked who she was, and where she came from.
"My name is Nice-to-look-at.
I am from Pleasant-places-in-the-ten-mountains.
I am the mother of Born-to-be-in-the-Sun.
"I know him, he is the mink.
Come, I will show you.
He is now waiting for the frog-woman to come down off my grand-father's Thunder Bird Totem Pole."
The pretty lady took his hand.
As they walked along she told her story.
"One morning, while I was making a sea-otter blanket, the sun came and shone on my back through a knot hole in my room.
Shortly after the mink was born, he grew up to be a man very quickly.
One day he came to me and said, "Mother, I want to marry the frog-woman."
"But you won't like her croaking."
"That is just what I like."
"Go on," I said, so they were married, and then they left in a canoe for the distant mountains far across the waters and did not come back."
Tum-Turn lead pretty lady to where the Totem Pole stood and there was the mink talking to the frog-woman.
His mother spoke gently to him.
"My boy Born-to-be-in-the-Sun".
He smiled and rolled his eyes.
"Mother, my wife and I have been resting under the protection of the Thunder Bird's spirit of goodwill.
He will be glad to meet you."
At those words, Thunder Bird flew off from the top of the Totem Pole.
Flashing his eyes like lightning and flapping his wings, making thunder.
He circled the village and came back where the visitors were standing.
He took off his feather clothing and mask and became a man.
Thunder Bird then commanded all those on the Totem to arouse themselves, come down to the ground, take off their masks and meet Mink's mother.
Some of the myth people took off their masks and became human.
Those who did not were Ho-hook.
Zoon-a-qua and Raven.
Nice-to-look-at related her story again of the sun, and she had come to seek him.
But how to get to his house in the sky no one knew .
Thunder Bird said he could fly up there.
Raven thought it best to wait for sundown then the house would not be so high in the Heavens.
Finally Tum-Tum said, "Let us make bird arrows and shoot them at his house.
If it can be hit, we can shoot another and another into their hocks, then we will have an arrow chain that will reach from earth to Skyland."
So they all got busy making arrows.
Mink made a strong yew wood bow.
When all was ready, Tum-Tum took the bow and began shooting upward making the chain like he said.
Only a blunt one was left over.
Zoon-a-qua, the Sleepy one woke up and said, "I will shoot this one to wake the sun," for a cloud had blotted out the house.
Up and up it went and was soon lost to sight.
They all stood around in wonder, waiting to see what would happen.
The sun has many tricks.
The arrow returned with such swiftness that Zoon-a-qua could not dodge and it hit him on the head leaving a big bump which amazed everyone and made them laugh.
Tum-Tum shook the arrow chain and it became a cedar rope, up which he and Pretty Lady started to climb followed by the mink with the Frog-Woman on his back.
After climbing for a long time they finally came to a big house.
From its front a great stream of light poured forth over all creation.
Standing near the doorway was a tall strong man with a broom in his hand bidding them welcome.
This was all so strange the Frog-Woman began croaking.
The Sun invited them to come inside.
He inquired of Nice-to-look-at, "I've seen you before."
The Mink spoke up and said, "This is your wife and I am your child."
To which he replied, "I remember now.
Could you loan me your feet?
I have to walk all the time, my feet get tired and if you don't keep sweeping your aunts and grandmothers (the clouds) will come and then it will get dark inside.
And all Skyland as well, if Thunder Bird knows that he will flash his lightning and roll his thunder to scare the people of the village to spill their buckets of raindrops.
You had better come in the house, the rascal may be up to some mischief right now."
The sun began sweeping again.
When the Mink and his friends went inside they saw many wondrous things.
Everything was bright and spotlessly clean.
In the four corners stood strong men holding up the beams that supported the roof.
Large cedar crests carved with the Sun's crest were piled on top of each other all around the sides of the house.
These excited the Mink's instinctive curiosity, so that he snooped around, opening and closing the boxes.
One was filled with sunrises, one had sun-beams in it, another was full of rainbows, and one had sunsets.
To open the four boxes at one time would be disastrous but the Mink did not know.
Others held the Sun's masks, rattles, dishes carved of wood and costumes for his dances. Boxes of food were stored everywhere.
In the center of the house there was a hole from which one could see the earth.
Below this was the well of life and death through which the souls from the dead departed from the earth.
Unborn souls went from here on the journey of life.
The Sun addressed the Mink again, "When are you going to lend me your feet?
My, it's getting foggy in here."
The Mink had no more than started to take them off when there was a screeching noise like a thousand owls.
The four strong men holding up the roof became frightened as the whole house trembled with a skyquake.
There was a great confusion, the Thunder Bird was outside, lightning flashed, thunder rolled—he was having fun.
The Sun's visitors slid from one end of the house to the other until they all disappeared through the Well of Life and Death.
They came floating down, down and down to the earth, landing noiselessly as a snowflake on a sandy beach, then started to make up their Totem-Pole again with the Thunder Bird on top.
Tum-Tum woke at the call of his mother. "You naughty boy, here is where you have been hiding.
Get your blanket and come in the house out of the rain."
