I have promised myself to read a book monthly, apart from my regular work, and as for the month of August, I decided to read a book called “Stages of Meditation”. This book was composed by Acharya Kamalashila (A Nalanda Scholar who was invited to Tibet by the King of Tibet; in the 8th century), and His Holiness the Dalai Lama has given many teachings of it. I highly recommend this book to all the friends who are interested in Meditation. This book is written for a Buddhist Practitioner however, it has highlighted many strategies and tips which could benefit even for a non-Buddhist. For example, it has mentioned about the diet you should follow and what kind of environment is suitable for a beginner etc.. At last but not least, I pray that this book will benefit you as much as it did to me.
Although I didn’t mention much about the books I read in the blog, I write quite often about it on the Facebook. And it appears to me that not many people appreciate the frequent posts of foods, places, selfies, activities etc.; and label it as a form of narcissist. However, I disagree with such form of prejudice.
If you feel not comfortable to see the posts, you can either unfriend, unfollow or even block the person from your list of friends.
In many occasion, I find much of your happiness or unhappiness depends on your own choice.
Anyhow, like I mentioned in other posts that I am going to read at least one book monthly. And “How to talk to anyone anytime anywhere” by Larry King was my chosen book for June.
Dharamsala is one of the most beautiful hill station in India. To me, this city is more like an international rendezvous avenue. Throughout the seasons you can find people from every nooks and crannies of the world. And because of their regular presence, even the restaurants around here started to serve wide range of dishes which suits the taste of the people, and I am sure this is one of the reason why many tourist says they get a sense of home away from home. Having said that if you want to order something you will have to turn at least 5 pages of menu to get what you want to have. Most funny part is that when you have decided your order, you either point your finger on the food item or let your smart device speaks for you because, many delicacies got such a tricky name that you may sound like cat got strangled if you try to pronounce it. Trust me it happened to me many times 🙂
