Haedong Yonggungsa Temple (해동 용궁사) – South Korea

In July of 2017, I visited the Haedong Yonggungsa Temple in Busan, South Korea.

As I was walking towards the temple, I was lured by the chanting. I stood by the temple speaker and recorded the following song:

Do you know what song this is?

He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one

This is a funny photoshopped picture I received through chain mail. It refers to Luke 22:36. However, it also reminds of me of the Matthew 10:34:

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

Ganesha – The obstacle remover

Ganesha, in the Hindu religion, is known as the remover of obstacles. I first learned about him when I was listening to Thomas Ashley-Farrand’s audio-book entitled: Mantra: Sacred Words of Power.

I love mantras and I learned his mantra:

Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha

The following picture explains Ganesha’s most famous depiction:

Time: The most precious commodity

It does not take a movie, or reading a book to realize that our most precious asset or commodity is time…

I ran into this viral video about the topic of time scarcity:

I loved the metaphor in that movie. Here’s the full transcript:

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400.
It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to used during the day.
What would you do?
Draw out every cent, of course?
Each of us has such a bank, its name is time.
Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft.
Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.
There is no drawing against ‘tomorrow.’
You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and health.
The clock is running.

Make the most of today.
