Searching for the Loch Ness Monster

The 'surgeon's photograph' of the Loch Ness Monster fooled people for 40 years before it was exposed as a hoax. However, it still continues to spark curiosity into the legends of the Loch Ness Monster. This was the picture I kept on myself for many years as a reminder of my fascination with the creature.

The ‘surgeon’s photograph’ of the Loch Ness Monster fooled people for 40 years before it was exposed as a hoax. However, it still continues to spark curiosity in the minds of those fascinated with the legends of Loch Ness. This was the picture I kept on my shelf for many years as a reminder of my fascination with the creature.

Ever since I was young, I’ve had a fascination with two things – strange and wonderful cryptid creatures (animals claimed to exist but without definitive scientific proof); and ancient mythology, especially Greek and Egyptian. My fascination with these two led to many incidents, which have since become humorous mainstays of family history.

As a child, I remember sitting next to my dad watching TV and some of the only programmes that my dad actually enjoyed were documentaries. My dad loves learning about things, whether it be building something, handicraft, or even about the natural environment or mythological creatures. One of my earliest memories is of watching a documentary about the famed Loch Ness Monster, affectionately called Nessie.

Nessie has long been a part of Scottish folklore as a cryptid inhabiting Loch Ness, a freshwater lake near the city of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. Nessie’s physical form is said to be reminiscent of a large dinosaur, with a long neck and protruding humps along its back. I remember watching people talk of this mysterious creature and seeing images flash up on the screen of Nessie rearing her head just above the Loch’s waters. I was enthralled by her and couldn’t wait to learn more.

Saint Columba saving his disciple from Nessie and banishing her to the depths of Loch Ness

Legends of Nessie have been around for hundreds of years. The first mention of her is from the life of Saint Columba (521-597 CE), an abbot from Ireland famed for spreading Christianity among the Picts of Scotland. Nessie is said to have killed a Pict after she was attacked and, in her rage, set sight upon killing one of the Saint’s disciples. But the Saint came to the rescue, calmed Nessie down and then banished her to live forever in the depths of the Loch. There have been many accounts of Nessie since then, but there has been no definitive ‘scientific’ proof of her existence. Many people, however, recount seeing her or even taking photographs of her. Learning more about her, all I could think about was that I wanted to see if she was real for myself.

The opportunity presented itself when I was around 15 years old. My parents had a long weekend off from work and were thinking of going on a short break with my elder brother and I. The problem was, they didn’t know where to go or what to do. At that time, the only thing that I could think of for some reason was Nessie. So I went around collecting travel magazines and going to various travel agencies in the town centre asking about how to go and see Nessie. I voraciously compiled a list of contact numbers and started calling around, gathering information. My parents thought I was crazy, but nevertheless I continued.

As the long weekend fast approached, I became anxious as my family didn’t really want to entertain my idea. And then, one Sunday evening, the perfect plan hatched inside my head. As an entire family, one of the TV shows we watched was called Monarch of the Glen, and I remembered that it was filmed somewhere near Inverness. I was in luck! After doing some research, I found out that the show was filmed in Inverness-shire and it is not that far from Loch Ness. So, I thought to myself that my family wouldn’t mind visiting to see the famed house and its grounds.

Ardverikie House in Inverness-shire, Scottish Highlands. It was here that Monarch of the Glen was filmed. I used visiting this place as an excuse to visit Scotland in my attempt to see Nessie. Unfortunately, it was closed to visitors at the time.

A couple of days later, I took my dad’s credit card from his wallet and proceeded to book a hotel near the Loch in his name. My parents were horrified when they found out and scolded me to no end. But once they had calmed down, they thought that visiting Scotland wouldn’t be such a bad idea. However, they informed me, that in my eagerness and youth, I had forgotten one very important factor – transport! My dad laughed and informed us that we would drive all the way there, after all, the countryside would be beautiful since it was the beginning of spring.

The weekend approached and we left before dawn, passing through rolling hills and untouched landscapes like Sherwood Forest, famed for its association with Robin Hood. We arrived at our hotel late into the night. The next morning, I ran to the reception to get as many brochures about the local attractions as possible, and guess what? The main attraction was Loch Ness! My parents acquiesced, and we ended up visiting the Loch on a bright sunny day. I spent hours sitting on the shore of the Loch, but much to my dismay, I didn’t see Nessie. My mother and brother were irritable so I suggested visiting the nearby Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition. Needless to say, I was enraptured with the history of the Loch and the legends of Nessie that surround it. I spent the rest of the day in there accompanied by my father, only to be ushered out at the closing time. When we got out, we found my mother and brother sitting, looking extremely bored on a bench. My dad smiled and took us all out for pizza in Inverness that night.

Some people believe that Nessie is said to resemble a plesiosaur, a prehistoric sea creature

The next day, I wanted to go back to the Loch, but my mother had had enough and diverted us to visit the estate that the Monarch of the Glen was filmed at. Unluckily, it was closed to visitors for renovations! My dad turned the car around and took us further along the Loch, away from the usual tourist destinations. We found a secluded area to have lunch which my mother had packed for us earlier, and we spent the afternoon talking and playing games on the shore-front. But every so often, I would peak out the corner of my eye over the Loch, hoping so badly to see Nessie. But she never did show herself to me. My family thought the trip was a failure, but we talked about Nessie the whole way back the next day, and by the time we reached home, they thought the holiday had been a success. Later on, I printed out a supposed photograph of Nessie, known as the ‘surgeon’s photograph’ and had it framed. It sat on a shelf in my family house for years.

The entire saga has been a source of amusement for my family since then, and every time I see pictures of Nessie, I remember that trip, the trepidation leading up to the trip, the excitement of being there and hoping to catch a glimpse of her. Though I have never been back since, I do hope one day to visit again and maybe this time, she will grant me my wish of seeing her.

    Loch Ness, a place filled with mystery and legend. Well it is the home of the Loch Ness Monster and so many other wonderful Scottish myths, legends and historical happenings. In Scottish folklore, the Loch Ness monster is said to be a creature that inhabits . It is often described as large in size with a long neck appearing from the water. There have been countless sightings of the legendary creature, with many exposed as hoaxes. It is the greatest unexplained mystery with legends of the mythical beast known far and wide. So far there is not much scientific evidence to proof its existence. A wonderful experience so near yet so far, for Pastor to get a glimpse of this creature during your outing with your family.
    Thank you Pastor Niral Patel for this wonderful sharing.

    Life isn’t easy on the streets… You’re always hungry, your body is exposed to the harsh outdoor conditions, you’re embarrassed and people can easily take advantage of you.

    John Byrne is a 37 year-old man from Ireland. He has been homeless since age 14 and begs for change alongside his rabbit, Barney and dog, Roxy. Whatever he “earns”, he uses it to buy food for the 3 of them. How kind…

    At the end of last year, John was begging on Dublin’s O’Connell Bridge. An 18 year-old street bully came up to him and snatched Barney out of John’s arms and threw him over the bridge and into River Liffey. River Liffey runs through the center of Dublin and is ice cold during winter. John thought that Barney died due to the impact and water temperature, but when he looked over, he saw Barney swimming in circles. He immediately jumped over the bridge and swam to save his rabbit!

    There’s always a lot of news published about how people would torment animals, abuse them and even intentionally throwing them into the river like in John’s case…

    If we believe that animals were created by someone for men, it would follow that men were also created for animals since s…ome animals do eat human flesh.

    Animals are said to be conscious only of the present. They live with no concern for the past or future. Likewise, little children seem to have no notion of the future. They also live in the present until their faculties of memory and imagination are developed.

    Men possesses the faculty of reasoning. The gap between man and animal widens only to the extent that man develops his reasoning faculty and acts accordingly. Buddhists accept that animals not only possesses instinctive power but also, to a lesser degree, thinking power.

    In some respects, animals are superior to men. Dogs have a keener sense of hearing; insects have a keener sense of smell; hawks are speedier; eagles can see a greater distance. Undoubtedly, men are wiser; but men have so much to learn from the ants and bees. Much of the animal is still in us. But we also have much more: we have the potential of spiritual development.

    Buddhism cannot accept that animals were created by someone for men; if animals were created for men then it could follow that men were also created for animals since there are some animals which eat human flesh.

    Thousands of Californian hens have escaped being gassed after an anonymous donor provided $50,000 for some of them to be flown across the US on a charter flight to a happy retirement on the east coast.
    The hens, who have reached the end of their egg-laying life, were due to be killed – a common practice in the US.

    But after an approach from the Animal Place sanctuary in northern California, 3,000 of them will enjoy a comfortable retirement instead. Thanks to an unnamed benefactor, 1,150 of them will be flown to New York to be distributed to sanctuaries in the eastern US.

    Faces of Enlightenment by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche – a Review

    Various Buddha images and forms show us the numerous ways to travel this path. Even though they may be vastly different in form, every single Buddha bring us towards the same goal of lasting happiness and ultimately enlightenment. Therefore whichever Buddhas we have an affinity with, will lead us towards the same goal, as long as we practice consistently and with a pure motivation.

    Great news …. a new Tibetan Buddhist center was established in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province. It has proof that China has accepted Tibetan Buddhism and has open its doors to other religion as well. Chinese authority has established the monastery following the advice and proposal of H.H.The 10th Panchen Lama . Well Tibetan Buddhism is fast spreading to the other parts of China. China has invested in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries to produce next younger generation of religious leaders teaching Buddhist classics and political theories. In recent years, the growing investment and government efforts into educational resources mainly in Tibetan areas of the province have increased dramatically.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Jane Goodall a British ethologist has travelled from England to Tanzania in searched of what she loves to do. She ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees . Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Jane Goodall braved a realm of unknowns to give the world an inspiring story of protecting chimpanzees from extinction. She also shown us the urgent need to protect other species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. She was considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees and best known for her long term research on wild chimpanzees. She was dubbed by her biographer “the woman who redefined man,” has changed our perceptions of primates, people, and the connection between the two. Inspiring ,selflessness,compassionate, kindness,loving, courage lady with strong determination that’s won the hearts of many.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

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.
    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
