Natural flavored water

Jan 7, 2013 | Views: 39,175

Dear students and friends,

This morning, I came across this wonderful website that teaches you how to make flavored water using fruits and herbs. I thought that I’d give it a try… The Ladrang made these drinks for me, and I particularly like the watermelon and pineapple flavored water. I thought that I’d share this recipe with everyone here as it is a much healthier option than drinking soda water or soft drinks.

Do give the recipes a try – it is extremely quick and easy! You can even make it in bulk to last you for 3 days, so it saves a lot of time. I wish all my students and friends to have great health always. Share with everyone in the comment section below if you’ve tried any other different combinations of fruits and herbs!

Pictures of flavor water made by the Ladrang

William and Bryan made these for me this morning. I had some of it when I woke up this morning… very nice.

 

The fruit drinks are kept chilled so that it stays fresh.

How To Make Naturally Flavored Water

Supplies needed:

  • Fruit – Whatever kind you like (except bananas); make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor. Use all kinds of citrus and berries. Pineapple and watermelon work well for flavoring water. 
  • Herbs – These are optional, but many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors; almost any herb will work depending on your personal preference
  • Jars or pitchers – Use 2 quart mason jars primarily, but any 2 quart pitcher will do. Fruit infusion pitcher is another option if you think you’ll be making infused waters regulary; a very easy, tidy way to strain fruit from water.
  • Muddler or wooden spoon for mashing fruit and herbs
  • Ice
  • Water – Use filtered water, but regular tap water is fine if it is hygienic.

 

Fresh or Frozen fruits

When in season, it is preferably to use fresh fruit. However, when fruit is out of season, the fresh version can be tart or flavorless. Because fruit that is to be frozen is picked at the peak of ripeness, it is often the better option for the best flavor, sweetness, and nutrients. This is especially in the case with berries and peaches.

 

A variety of fresh herbs. 

Use whatever herbs you like or happen to have on hand. It’s surprising how well they blend with most fruit flavors, and they amp up the refreshing factor of the water. Mint is the most obvious herb choice. Basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, lavender, and tarragon; all good.

You can combine most fruits and herbs according to your favorite flavors and what you have on hand in your fridge. Here you will learn how to make 5 flavor combos. You can take it from there, creating endless flavor combos of your own.

 

Quantities

The quantities in the flavored water recipes are all for 2 quart jars or pitchers. You can adjust the quantity according to the jar size. 

 

Recipe

Fruit Flavored Water

1) All Citrus Flavored Water – adds refreshing tartness to water

What you need: 1 orange, 1 lime, 1 lemon, 1 two quart jar, wooden spoon, ice, filtered water

Slice 1 orange, 1 lime, 1 lemon into rounds, then cut the rounds in half. Add to jar, press and twist with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon. Press enough to release some of the juices, but don’t pulverize the fruit into pieces. Fill the jar with ice. Pour in water to the top. Stir it with the handle of a wooden spoon or a chopstick. Put a lid on it, put it in the fridge, and chill. 

You can drink it right away, but the flavor intensifies if it’s made an hour or two ahead. It’s even better the next day. 24 hours later straight from the fridge, the ice still hasn’t melted completely. The ice at the top serves as a sieve so that you can pour the flavored water without getting fruit bits in your glass.

 

2. Raspberry Lime Flavored Water – beautiful color and mildly tart

What you need: 2 limes, generous amount of raspberry, muddler, 1 two quart jar, ice, filtered water

Quarter 2 limes; with your hands, squeeze the juice into the jar, then throw in the squeezed lime quarters. Add raspberries. Press and twist with a muddler to release some of the juices (don’t pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.

 

Flavored Water with Fruits and Herbs

3) Pineapple Mint Flavored Water – a hint of minty sweetness

What you need: Mint leaves, some pineapple, 1 two quart jar, muddler, ice, filtered water.

Add a sprig of mint to the jar–you can throw in the whole sprig; or, remove the leaves from the sprig, if you prefer to have the mint swimming around and distributing in the jar. Muddle the mint–the goal is to bruise the leaves and release their flavor–don’t pulverize them into bits. Add pineapple pieces, press and twist with the muddler to release juices. Add ice to the top and then water. Stir, cover, and refrigerate. 

 

4) Blackberry Sage Flavored Water – subtle, refreshing flavor

What you need: Sage leaves, blackberry, muddler, ice, filtered water, 1 two quart jar.

Add sage leaves to jar and bruise with a muddler. Add blackberries; press and twist with muddler to release their juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.

5) Watermelon Rosemary Flavored Water – lovely flavor combo

What you need: Rosemary leaves, watermelon, 1 two quart jar, muddler, ice, filtered water

Add a sprig of rosemary to jar and muddle gently (rosemary releases a strong flavor without much muddling). Add watermelon cubes; twist and press gently to release juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.

 

All five flavored water:

How long will they keep? 

Put a lid on them, put them in fridge, and they will keep for up to 3 days. It only takes a few minutes to make several varieties to keep on hand. No more boring water!

 

Pour into a glass.

When there’s still ice left in the jar, it will filter out the fruit/herb bits as you pour the water into a glass. After the ice melts, if you don’t want to drink fruit bits along with the water, use a small wire strainer to remove them as you pour the water into your drinking glass. UPDATE: Another option is to use a sprout strainer lid made to fit wide mouth mason jars.

 

Sweeten it up, if you must. 

If you have a sweet tooth and find these flavored waters undrinkable without some sweetener, go ahead and stir in some simple sugar syrup, honey, agave syrup, or whatever sweetener you prefer. 1 teaspoon of sugar only has 15 calories, so go ahead and add one to your glass. Given that a single can of soda or juice has the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar, you are still way better off drinking slightly sweetened water. If you are hooked on sweet tasting drinks and want to reduce or eliminate sugar or artificial sweeteners, you may need to wean yourself gradually. Unsweetened beverages are an acquired taste. 

 

Great for entertaining! 

Flavored waters are very popular now, as more people are avoiding soda and juice. Make a variety of flavored waters to offer at your next party. Look how gorgeous they are! Refreshing, healthy, inexpensive, and beautiful. Plus you can make and refrigerate them well in advance of the party.

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing the recipe for Natural Flavored Water. I should be great to drink on a hot and humid weather like this in Malaysia. 🙂 Thank You Rinpoche and Ladrang crew for these great recipes and pictures!

  2. CindyH on Jul 12, 2016 at 1:08 am

    Flavoured water really is a healthier alternative and a great pick-me-up on a hot day. And as seen from the post and pictures, it is really not hard to do and pretty handy to whip up when entertaining.

    My other favourite combinations include; cucumber with lemongrass (picked up this one after a trip to the spa); blackberries with lemon and ginger; orange and thyme as well as cucumber and mint. (which are all slightly sweet and zingy).

    Thank you Rinpoche for constantly thinking about our overall welfare including even minute details like encouraging us to drink sufficient water as well as opting for healthier drinks. And for doing it in a manner which will grab our attention and appeal to our senses.

  3. Sofi on Jul 12, 2016 at 12:22 am

    With so much artificial food and drinks in the market nowadays, it is wonderful for Rinpoche to share with us the natural way to flavour water which many do not like to drink plain. We usually just a piece of lemon to our water but with this simple to do recipes to try, will definitely try out and maybe expand to try others. I think pomegranate seeds will be a nice addition. Thank you so much Rinpoche.

  4. Pastor Antoinette Kass on May 27, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    The different tastes of flavoured water with the many colours look very inviting and add another healthy drinking option.

    Indeed adding only one spoon of sugar is way less compared to the soda drinks we buy. Fresh fruits have many vitamins and the choice can vary to the seasonal fruits available. So it adds more choice and variety.

    This are easy recipes to prepare and prepare in advance for when you have guest or on a day to day basis.

    Healthy and not boring!

    Thank You Rinpoche and Ladrang crew for these great recipes and pictures!

  5. Tsem Rinpoche on May 27, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    I really don’t like to drink much water. But with these flavorings in it will make a big difference. I can drink much more water if served like this daily.

  6. Tsem Rinpoche on May 27, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    I would love have this daily for sure. Great offering to the Buddha too as it looks very inviting.

  7. Pastor Moh Mei on Apr 10, 2016 at 11:28 pm

    The kind of bottled drinks and juices we buy in the supermarket these days contain so much sugar and other preservatives. These drinks are so unhealthy. Most of us are so used to drink something with flavor sometimes plain water just doesn’t satisfy.

    These natural flavored water recipes are so easy to make and most importantly they are natural and full of healthy ingredients. A lot of people in the city these days due to time constraint usually eat out and this inevitably leads to a unhealthy diet. We think we are saving time by doing so but eventually when health problems manifest we ended up spending even more time and money on health issues which takes even longer time to heal.

    Taking the time and effort now to eat and drink healthy will ensure less time spent later on trying to deal with health problems.

  8. Chandra on Jan 21, 2015 at 4:31 am

    This seems to be the new trend among all the food bloggers! The final product with the side addition of herbs does look tempting. I might get myself to make this in the summer. Seems healthy too without the unnecessary preservatives.

  9. Liam on Jun 20, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    I was wondering how many millilitres are there in a quart jar? having never seen one and i was wondering so i could substitute the jar for something else.

  10. Giuseppe Marotta on May 29, 2014 at 1:47 am

    Hello! Does someone knows how to preserve them? If I wanted to bottle them, for example, ir there any way to preserve them? If anybody knows it would be great! Thanks!

  11. Kaitlyn on Apr 17, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    Does it matter if I forgot to put ice cubes in??

  12. RAJESHREE PATEL on Apr 12, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    I WANT TO MAKE BUSINESS OF FLAVOURED WATER KINDLY SHOW ME THE WAY HOW IT CAN BE KEPT GOOD FOR ONE MONTH OR MORE

  13. Kelsey G on Mar 5, 2014 at 10:26 am

    My boyfriend and I love these flavored water drinks. They make us feel better and is a better alternative then drinking juice. He likes it with out sugar and I like mine with 1 tsp of sugar but either way it tastes better then other things.

  14. Vinnie Tan on Oct 3, 2013 at 2:32 am

    This is just really cool, the drinks are just delicious. I really enjoy how it cools the body, yet giving you that sugar rush that you may need. The best part is that the taste from the drinks are all natural, there is no artificial flavouring. Hence, it helps one to maintain that healthy diet that they may be having.

  15. kleo on Sep 13, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    why no banana??

  16. Danie on Jul 25, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Definitely going to try this. I can’t really drink water because of how sensitive my taste buds are, and these look really good 😀

  17. Alta C.French on Jun 19, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you so much for this site & instruction for the flavored waters.I have tried a few mixtures on my own but wasn’t sure about combinations.You have made it easy for me to do.

  18. Lucas Roth on May 26, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    this is quite interesting because how the water changes color and it is natural. i am very tempted to try it because it looks very good and why not? if it is good i might even make more.

  19. Ong Moh Mei on Feb 23, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Very creative and kind of William and Bryan to prepare these healthy fruit flavored drinks for Rinpoche. They look so yummy. We can make them next time in KFR using our homegrown organic fruits and ingredients.

  20. Jean Mei on Jan 31, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    These are delicious!!

    There are lots of people who don’t like drinking water, and some are even repulsed by the thought of drink plain water. These recipes for naturally flavoured water will come in very handy!!

    I tried the watermelon and rosemary flavoured water, and although I found it really weird upon the first taste – it turned out to be very refreshing and rehydrating!

    It tastes a lot better than drinking soft drinks, and you don’t have the feeling that you just gulped down 8 spoonfuls of sugar after a glass of flavoured water.

    I’m a little adverse to water flavoured with mint, sage and rosemary – if anyone has any other recipes to share – do share! 🙂

  21. Andrew Boon on Jan 19, 2013 at 11:57 am

    What a wonderful way to get liquids into your body… especially those who dislike drinking plain water. A healthy, refreshing and essential alternative indeed.

  22. Jean Ai on Jan 15, 2013 at 1:24 am

    OHHHHHHH THAT’S what we were served the other day! A few nights ago, when we were having an audience with Rinpoche, the kitchen team served the audience attendees some really lovely flavoured water. I had no idea it was this! The minty one was really delicious, and a nice change from the usual soft drinks I chug down to keep my energy levels up (what a lie hahaha let’s be honest, I drink it for the sugar). Well, it’s no surprise we’re moving in this direction as Kechara Forest Retreat is being constructed…if we’re going to be promoting mental and physical health at KFR, we gotta start practising now!

  23. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 14, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    These are great recipes. Thank you rinpoche for such recipes. Fruit drinks can be so innovative and delightful.

  24. Sean Wang on Jan 10, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    All the flavored water shown in the pictures here looked so delicious and refreshing. The one I really want to make is Raspberry Lime and all citrus. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the recipe. This is extremely useful and informational 😀

  25. Pastor Chia on Jan 10, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    All this home make fruits drink are so refreshing and healthy. Is better than always drinking soft drink all the time and contain many sugar.not good for our health. Sample of ingredient to making all the food fruits drinks are easily get the market.

    Thank you rinpoche find this interesting recipe and sharing with us.

  26. Girlie Ooi on Jan 9, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    There is this refreshing drink I love that is served in a Thai food restaurant in PJ — blended mint, lemongrass and crushed ice cubes. Soothing to the throat and great way to end a hot day.

    All the recipes provided here look delicious and with only natural ingredient and fresh fruits/herbs, the sugar level will not be high as in carbonated drinks.

  27. ERIC LEE KHJB on Jan 9, 2013 at 3:26 pm

  30. Albert Ratchaga on Jan 8, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

  31. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 8, 2013 at 2:40 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this recipe…

  36. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 7, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these health tips.

    All these drinks here look very tempting. I love things that come natural, and better still if the process of doing them does not take up too much time as I am not a good cook (yet!!), so these drinks do look very good for me!!!

    With things going too commercialised nowadays where profit is the main concern, we are getting a lot more chemicals in our stomachs than the older generations. Things that are unnatural usually do much harms to our bodies.

    These drinks definitely encourage people to drink more water. Nice!!

  37. Yee Mun on Jan 7, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    My own recipe of flavored water are

    1. lemon + honey
    2. lemon, passion fruits + honey/salt
    3. boil roselle bud with rock sugar
    4. lemon + sea salt (this drink ease bowel movement :-p )

    With Rinpoche’s sharing, I have more choices now. Thank you Rinpoche.

    • sarahyap on Feb 4, 2013 at 8:43 pm

      Yee Mun,

      Wow, cool! Thanks for sharing your recipes! Have you been drinking flavored water for a long time? Have you tried any of the above so far? =)

  38. tenzin llhamo on Jan 7, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    Slurp slurp… The drinks look yummy! With the Internet, everything is super easy and convenient. Everyone can do it at home. If one were to order outside, it will be expensive and might not be as yummy.
    Just mix a few jars of any favors you like and put them into the fridge. Every morning when we wake can choose whichever we want to drink. Better than drinking plain water. A healthy drink to start the day! Thank you Rinpoche for yet another wonderful and healthy recipes…

  39. mitra on Jan 7, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Ladrang people for posting this great recipe.may rinpoche be well and healthy always.

  40. Jessica Yap on Jan 7, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    This is sucha simple recipe to follow! I really need to stop consuming canned drinks and make this flavored water instead. Not only is it east to make, it is healtier too. Rnipoche is always so kind and shares such informative posts in this blog. A new find everyday! hehe
    Thank you Rinpoche! May Rinpoche be well and healthy always!

  41. patsy on Jan 7, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    This flavored water is good to quench our thirst on a hot day. It looks is refreshing and yummy. As I don’t take canned drinks, this will be a good alternative as it is easy to prepare.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe. Will try it out:)

  42. Sharon Saw on Jan 7, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    These drinks sound amazing! I love fruit juices or fruit based juices and teas… and i don’t like any kind of sodas like coke, sprite etc (thank buddha, otherwise my sugar-level would go through the roof), so these drinks sound perfect for me. I especially like the sound of the blackcurrant and the watermelon drinks. A must try… and definitely this post is a must share!!

  43. Joy on Jan 7, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Very refreshing and healthy indeed… In fact because of the fruits and herbs, I’m sure it’s nutrients is in the water and it’s much more beneficial then to drink plain water I reckon. Definitely better then coco cola 🙂 Sometimes Rinpoche can add a little bit of honey or Agave if it still come across bitter.

    Anyway, since we’re on the drink healthy subject… here is an interesting site with 47 Smoothies for Summer thought I’d share with Rinpoche and all… I know Rinpoche’s not a huge fan of thick drinks, but some of them looks refreshing yet pack full of detox, antioxidants or nutritional contents for energy and healing, take a look… http://rebelwellness.com/blog/2012/06/47-smoothies-for-summer

  44. HelenaC on Jan 7, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    Yum Yumzzz, Look so delicious the flavored water hehehe, Its perfect for kids and for those whom does not like to drink water as water is tasteless, they will definitely love to drink water now with this recipe hehehe. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  45. Han on Jan 7, 2013 at 8:45 am

    All look refreshing .

    Thank you Rinpoche and Ladrang people for posting this great recipe. I like orange, watermelon and pineapple mint. will try on these combinations ….

  46. James Long on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:26 am

    看起来好好喝哦,我喜欢鲜桔子的味道,相信这些水,除了好喝,当然也包含了所有的维他命,看来有新的法宝来哄小孩子喝水了。呵呵

  47. AdelineTan on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:25 am

    All the flavored water shown in the pictures here looked so delicious and refreshing,i like blackberry sage the most and another choice is pineapple mint. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the recipe.

  48. sarahyap on Jan 7, 2013 at 3:22 am

    Wonderful recipes. It truly is indeed a very healthy option compared to soft drinks, and the best thing is, it tastes better than soft drinks! We must always ensure that our body is at it’s peak of health if we want to continuously benefit others.

    One thing good about this recipe is, even if we decide to add some honey or sugar to it, the sugar content is still less than what usually is available in soft drinks. To top it off, the flavored water is like drinking water itself! Which is essential for people to drink at least 8 glasses a day.

    Now with this recipe, parents or individuals that do not like drinking plain water will not have an ‘excuse’ to not take more fluid intake since this recipe makes drinking water more palatable.

    I’m looking forward to try other combinations of fruits to make other interesting flavored water and will share it here!

Thanks for your recommendation of the specify species of plants. Surprisingly they are easily available in our environment and also in our neighbouring garden. All this plants are considered to grow and maintain easily.

    I had a valuable information from this article especially from money plant, all my thoughts about money plant was a good feng shui plant but it is consider to remove toxins from the air. Very soon I going to have them in my house as well.

    Thank you once again for sharing of the natural way to improve the air through plants.

    Animal Rights and Human Wrongs
    “Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is ‘Because the animals are like us.’ Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are not like us.’ Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.”
    -Professor Charles R. Magel

    How would you like to wake up to a day where you have no pain, fear, anxieties, stress and you are left alone to enjoy the air, earth, sunshine, fresh foods, friends and natural environment?

    Well not only you but all animals would like this. Read this article on animal testing at http://bit.ly/32lnTac

    After years of losing her babies and pumping out milk for humans – when the cow is too tired and weak this is how her life will end —Animals in this condition are known in the meat and dairy industry as “downers.” According to the industry’s own statistics, each year, millions of chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows arrive at the slaughterhouse either dead or too sick or injured to walk. The animals be…come severely crippled or ill after a lifetime of abuse in factory farms and a very difficult journey to the slaughterhouse, during which they are shipped through all weather extremes without any food or water. Factory farms don’t provide individualized medical care or humane euthanasia to sick animals: It’s cheaper to let the animals suffer and eventually die. The suffering caused by the meat, egg, and dairy industries’ cost-cutting measures is enormous.

    Back in 2009, Tsem Ladrang in Kuala Lumpur had an aviary which was 40ft by 7ft in the garden. It was built in a way to allow the birds to stretch their wings and fly around. The aviary had lots of fresh water, fresh food, Dharma music playing in the background, many natural wooden perches, mirrors, hanging toys, ropes, uncovered space for rain to enter etc. It was a great place to rescue and rehabilitate many, many birds… like a mini sanctuary in the city!

    The birds in the Ladrang aviary are not released as they are quite tame and would probably not survive outside. However, wild birds that come to us injured will be nursed back to health and released back to nature.

    At Kechara Forest Retreat, we have an aviary that is right next to the Ladrang. The aviary is over 15 feet in height and over 4000 sq ft!! It built in such a way that it didn’t destroy the original jungle land and trees, but it’s enclosed to protect the birds from other animals like boars, snakes and dogs. It also has some natural pools of water, and lots of toys and mirrors to keep them active, and the floor of the aviary is soft sand so if they choose to land on the ground, which is safe from predators, they don’t have to stand on hard concrete. The very best that we can do is to create a living environment that is most similar to their natural environment.

    Check out the video on the aviary, a few pictures of the birds and the aviary, and a short description of each bird for anyone who’s interested at http://bit.ly/2VPy2to

    Wonderful Korea – Gyeongsang

    This is the land where folklores, tales of heroes, and the ancient history of the Korean imperial kingdom are well-preserved. During the Joseon dynasty, Daegu was the provincial capital, and was the origin of the Silla Kingdom that ruled for almost a thousand years. Gyeongsang may no longer be the capital, but it continues to play an important role in modern day Korea, with half of the country’s presidents coming from this region.

    For the benefit of people who are elderly and also do not have time, I did a light explanation with not too much details but enough for you to engage in a daily sadhana practice.

For those of you not in Kuala Lumpur you may order the text from the translator online (Dechen Ling press). I have provided the link below also.

    This is really something that will touch your heart and you will be amazed how much love and patient some people have.

    On a daily basis, there are many stories on the Internet of how animals are abused and neglected. A few days ago, I came across a story that I wanted to share with all of you…

    A man in the UK, Leighton Naylor, felt sorry for his goldfish when he became ill and unable to swim. Instead of discarding him, and getting a new fish… he made him a life jacket!

    When I read about this story of Einstein the goldfish, I was so touched by Naylor’s kindness! I love fishes too, and have many in my Ladrang. They are very smart and will come near me whenever I’m about to feed them… very cute.

    Naylor who treats all of his pets as a family member couldn’t bear to see poor Einstein in such a state… so he did something about it. It’s amazing how true care can bring out within us strength and creativity. I guess that’s why those who care always manage to find a way to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.

    Do read this touching story of Naylor and his friend Einster at http://bit.ly/2BiZMx5

    Sometimes you come across someone so unusual, don’t complain, don’t expect others to do things for them and just get things done themselves. These types of people amaze me! This man, Mr. Leo Grillo is an exceptional human being and he uplifts my spirits. I pray and wish him a very long life and admire his compassion. Mr. Grillo is a real hero!

    Many people like dogs or animals, but rarely will they get out of their comfort zones or commitments to do something more. Some I understand have genuine commitments they can’t escape. When we don’t want to do something, we can come up with all types of excuses that seem valid or we make them valid. When we want to do something, we just get it done without blame or name.

    China is a very blessed place for Buddhists. There are four sacred places in China of the four different Buddhas. Mount Wu Tai is the abode of Manjushri; Mount Hua Yan is he abode of Ksirtigarbha; Mount E-mei is the abode of Samantabhadra; Mount Pu Xian is the abode of Chenrezig (Guan Yin).

    Throughout history, many highly attained masters had made pilgrimage trips to these sacred mountains to pray, do retreat and pay homage to the Buddhas. These places are charged with lots of positive energy.

    When we go to these places, we should make very good motivations and aspirations. The energy here might help to open our good karma to walk on the spiritual path or change our life for good.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
