Inward and reflective focus on the subjective world of deeply felt values that seeks harmony through alignment of personal behavior with those values and evaluation of phenomena in light of those values.
This stunning footage may look like it’s come straight from a Hollywood SciFi film, but it’s in fact a rare scientific phenomenon. It was captured in Preservation Bay, on the remote island of Tasmania.
Take a quick look at the videos not royal related but amazing.
Super cool, something different, I’ve seen this in documentaries, please check it out. Thanks very much for the submission
(44) It also radiates a light called “Purity of Phenomena”
Able to cause all hair pores to expound Inconceivable wonderful teachings
So all who hear will joyfully understand.
What originates from causes and conditions has no origination;
The reality-body of the Buddhas is not a body;
The nature of things is eternally like space:
By explaining these meanings is there a light like this.
(45) Such incomparable gateways of lights
Are innumerable, like sand grains of the Ganges River;
All emerge from the Great Sage’s pores,
Each performing a distinct function.
As the lights emanated from a single pore
Are countless, innumerable as the Ganges sands,
So are those of each and every pore:
This is the power of the Sage’s concentration.
According to the lights attained by past practice,
Those who practice likewise, according to their affinities,
Now radiate lights therefore like this:
This is the freedom of the Sage’s knowledge.
Those who practiced virtuous deeds like the Buddha
And had appreciation and rejoiced in accord,
Who saw what he did and then did likewise,
They are all able to see this light.
If any practice virtuous deeds themselves
And make offerings to innumerable Buddhas,
Always aspiring to the virtues of buddhahood,
They are awakened by this light.
Avatamsaka Sutra 354
Note on the image: Vairocana, the Illuminator, from the Japanese tradition.
The Hesperides were the goddesses of the evening and golden light of sunset. The three nymphs were daughters of either Nyx (Night) or the heaven-bearing Titan Atlas. They were entrusted with the care of the tree of the golden apples which was first presented to the goddess Hera by Gaia (Earth) on her wedding day. They were assisted in their task by a hundred-headed guardian drakon named Ladon. The Hesperides were also the keepers of other treasures of the gods.
The three nymphs and their golden apples were apparently regarded as the source of the golden light of sunset, a phenomena celebrating the bridal of the heavenly gods Zeus and Hera.
