10 Most Terrifying Places on Earth

Mar 9, 2011 | Views: 6,454

Below are 10 locations that are said to be the top few most haunted places on Earth, extracted from listverse.com. It’s not surprising that some places like cemeteries are haunted… but what about below the streets of Paris? At Leap Castle is an elemental spirit. Elemental spirits are created by negative rituals/negative energies (they say) that manifest to disturb people of the area. Very interesting. Watch the video on Leap Castle and hear about the copycat walking or chantings are heard…

The ghosts that linger around these areas are the type who are mainly attached to a certain place. Due to their deep attachments, when it’s their time to pass, they are unwilling to leave and therefore remain in this ghostly state… unable to move on. These beings suffer tremendously, and we should feel empathetic towards them… instead of fear.

The suffering that went on inside buildings such as the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is unfathomable. All of these terrible things should not be forgotten, but studied and learned from. Motivation for Dharma is much easier when you don’t ever take your human life for granted.

Keep coming back to the thought of your mortality. Don’t forget about death because you want to avoid the idea or make excuses. The more you wish to avoid death, the more suffering you will have when you do die, due to your aversion. Your problems and fears will amplify when you try to avoid them.

Remember, if we consistently push ourselves to reduce our attachments, this will create the causes for ourselves not to be reborn in such an unpleasant realm.

#10 Riddle House

The History

The Riddle House in Palm Beach County, Florida, was originally a funeral parlor. The Victorian house was dismantled and rebuilt in Yesteryear Village at the South Florida fair grounds. In the 1920’s, the house became privately owned by Karl Riddle.

The Terror

Joseph, one of Riddle’s former employees, committed suicide by hanging himself in the attic of the house. Joseph, for whatever reason, hated men, and displays this hatred by attacking men who enter the attic. One man had a lid flung at his head, and men are now no longer allowed in the attic. Other places in the house are haunted as well, with furniture being frequently moved.

#9 Helltown

The History

The Northern part of Summit County in Ohio is known by the eerily blunt moniker, Helltown. In the 70’s, Boston Township was the site of a government buyout, and subsequent mass eviction of citizens. The houses were intended to be torn down and the land used for a national park, but the plans never quite manifested. Legends spawned wildly, and who can blame the legend mongers? Driving through the dark, wooded landscape was enough to give you chills even when it was populated, let alone when you have to drive by boarded up houses standing next to the burnt out hulks of others (the local fire department used some buildings for practice).

The Terror

Whether based on a kernel of truth or cooked up in the heads of creative visitors, the persistent legends of Helltown add to the creep factor. The steep Stanford Road drop off, immediately followed by a dead end, is aptly named The End of the World. If you get stuck at this dead end for too long, according to ghost story enthusiasts, you may meet your end at the hands of many members of the endless parade of freaks patrolling the woods. Satanists, Ku Klux Klan members, an escaped mental patient, an abnormally large snake, and mutants caused by an alleged chemical spill proudly march in this parade. And if you stray from the roads, you may find Boston Cemetery, home to a ghostly man, grave robbers and, the quirkiest of all, a moving tree.

 

#8 Stull Cemetery

The History

Stull, Kansas, is a tiny, unincorporated town in Douglas County. Ten miles west of Lawrence and thirteen miles east of Topeka puts it far from anything resembling a large population center. The population of Stull is approximately 20 people. But, don’t let the deceptively quaint village fool you. A darker side lurks behind the bushes and in the shadows.

The Terror

In the early 20th century, two tragedies rocked the tiny settlement (please observe, these are not legend or folklore, but fact). First, a father finished burning a farm field, only to find the charred corpse of his young son in the aftermath. The second incident to occur was a man went missing, and was later found hanged from a tree. As far as legends go, the infamous cemetery is where you can find your fill of supernatural lore. The book Weird US has this to say on Stull Cemetery:

“There are graveyards across America that go beyond merely being haunted and enter into the realm of the diabolical. They are places so terrifying that they say the devil himself holds courts with his worshippers there. The cemetery on Emmanuel Hill in Stull, Kansas, is one of these places.”

Rumors exist stating that Stull Cemetery is one of the 7 gateways to Hell. While the old church is now demolished, many attempt to sneak in at night for a peek at the unsavory goings-on. But be warned, the police patrol heavily, especially on Halloween and the spring equinox. The place is supposed to be so unholy, in fact, that some claim Pope John Paul II refused to allow his plane to fly over eastern Kansas, on his way to an appearance in Colorado. The validity of this last claim is up for debate, but none can deny that legends or not, Stull Cemetery is a terrifying place to be.

#7 The Ridges

The History

Originally known as the Athens Lunatic Asylum, The Ridges was renamed after the state of Ohio acquired the property. The hospital saw hundreds of lobotomies, and often declared masturbation and epilepsy to be the causes of insanity in patients.

The Terror

Athens, Ohio, is listed as the 13th most haunted place in the world, as per the British Society for Psychical Research. The nearby Ohio University (which currently owns most of the property on which the Ridges is located) is said to be heavily haunted. The notorious rapist with Dissociative Identity Disorder, Billy Milligan, was housed at the facility for years. The most famous story, however, is that of a 54 year old female patient who ran away and was missing for 6 weeks. She was found dead in an unused ward. She had taken off all of her clothes, neatly folded them, and laid down on the cold concrete where she subsequently died. Through a combination of decomposition and sun exposure, her corpse left a permanent stain on the floor, which is still visible today. Her spirit now haunts the abandoned ward.

#6 Humberstone and LaNoria

The History

These two abandoned mining towns in Chile were recently featured on an episode of the SyFy Channel’s show, Destination Truth. In 1872, the town was founded as a saltpeter mine, and business boomed. However, after several heavy blows (including the Great Depression), the business declined and then collapsed in 1958, and the town of Humberstone and its surrounding towns were abandoned by 1960. Treatment of workers in both towns bordered on slavery, and now the towns are left standing derelict.

The Terror

It is rumored that the dead of the La Noria cemetery rise at night and walk around the town, and ghostly images frequently show up in photographs in Humberstone. These towns are so terrifying, the residents of nearby Iquique refuse to enter them. The former residents never left, and can be seen walking around, and children have been heard playing. The cemetery of La Noria, regardless of whether its occupants actually walk at night, contains opened graves where the bodies are fully exposed, leaving you to wonder why. Is it ghosts, or is it grave robbers? As if either prospect is very appealing.

#5 Byberry Mental Asylum

The History

The Philadelphia State Hospital at Byberry, or known simply as Byberry, was the poster image for patient maltreatment. The hospital, in its most popular form, was founded in 1907, and known as the Byberry Mental Hospital. It exceeded its patient limit quickly, maxing out at over 7,000 in 1960. It housed everything from the mentally challenged to the criminally insane. Due to its atrocious conditions, and the sub-human treatment of its patients, the hospital was closed and abandoned in 1990. It had since become a nuisance for the neighborhood, as it was a breeding ground for vandals, arsonists, Satanists, and urban explorers. It was demolished in 2006, in spite of the fear of spreading asbestos, (which is what kept it standing for 16 years).

The Terror

The terrifying aspect of this location isn’t so much its hauntings or the unsavory characters that lurked after dark (although you would have been wise to be wary of both while exploring the building). The terror here comes from the facts of how the hospital was run. Human excrement lined the hallways, which were also where many patients slept. The staff were abusive, and frequently exploited and harassed patients. One patient had a tooth pulled without Novocaine, while another killed and dismembered a female patient. Although the killer, Charles Gable, was never found, the victim’s body was found strewn across the property. Her teeth were found being played with by another patient. Even as the hospital was in the process of closing, two released patients were found dead in the Delaware River, two successive days after their release. Perhaps that gate in Stull Cemetery opens here.

#4 Leap Castle

The History

While this Irish castle is perhaps the most popular location featured on the list, it is worth recapping the long and often gruesome history. Although it was built by the O’Bannons in the late 15th century, the castle was taken over by the ruling O’Carrolls, to whom the O’Bannons were subject. After the death of Mulrooney O’Carroll, a fierce rivalry erupted, culminating in two brothers struggling for control. One of the brothers, a priest, was brutally murdered in his own chapel, in front of the family, by the other brother. This chapel is now known as the Bloody Chapel, for obvious reasons. Many people were held prisoner and even executed at the castle.

The Terror

The castle is rumored to be haunted by a vast number of spirits, including a violent, hunched beast known only as the Elemental. It is most recognizable by the accompanying smell of rotting flesh and sulphur. While renovating the castle, workers discover an oubliette, which is a dungeon accessible only through a ceiling hatch, into which prisoners are thrown, then forgotten and left to die. This particular oubliette contained three cartloads of human remains, and was filled with spikes to impale those thrown into its depths.

#3 Shades of Death Road

(This road is in New Jersey, my home until my late teenage years in America.)

The History

This New Jersey road winds through 7 miles of countryside, and along that stretch it gives us no definitive clues as to the origin of its eerie name (for those wondering, Shades of Death is not a nickname given by locals, but is in fact the road’s official moniker). While the explanation for this highly unusual name has been lost, many theories abound. Some say that murderous highwaymen would rob and kill those along the road. Others say the reason was because of violent retaliations by the locals against the very same highwaymen, resulting in their lynched corpses being hung up as a warning.

Some attribute it to three murders that occurred in the 20’s and 30’s. The first murder saw a robber beating his victim over the head with a tire iron, the second saw a woman decapitate her husband and bury the head and body on separate sides of the road, and the third consisted of poor Bill Cummins being shot and buried in a mud pile. Some attribute it to massive amounts of fatal car crashes, while others consider it the fault of viscous wildcats from the nearby Bear Swamp. The most likely explanation, however, is that malaria-bearing mosquitos terrorized the locals year after year, and the remoteness of the area prevented good medical attention from being prominent. This is supported by the fact that, in 1884, most of the swamps in the area were drained.

The Terror

Gruesome history and spooky name aside, you have much to fear along this byway. South of the I-80 overpass lies an officially unnamed lake, that most will tell you is called Ghost Lake. This lake is frequently the home of specter-like vapors, and the sky is supposed to be unusually bright, no matter what time of night you are there. As per the name, ghosts of the highwaymen’s victims roam the area, and they are most frequent in the abandoned cabin across the lake. The dead-end road known as Lenape Lane is home to thick fogs and apparitions, and you may be chased off the road by a white light. Wikipedia details the most disturbing aspect of the road:

“One day during the 1990s, some visitors found hundreds of Polaroid photographs scattered in woods just off the road. They took some and shared them with Weird NJ, which published a few as samples. Most of the disturbing images showed a television changing channels, others showed a woman or women, blurred and somewhat difficult to identify, lying on some sort of metal object, conscious but not smiling. Local police began an investigation after the magazine ran an item with the photos, but the remainder disappeared shortly afterwards.”

Here’s an un-edited first person account from a young woman who drove down this road. It was taken from the comment section of a paranormal website. “Me and my friend actually were just on this road. I live 10 minutes away from it, I’ve been there dozens of times. Once my friend’s car wouldn’t start under the bridge (which is one of the stories). But the other night, me and my friend turned off my car and sat there for five minutes when the windows started fogging up (which is part of the story). Hand prints didn’t show up, but when I tried starting my car, it stalled. Then when we were leaving Shades, and some black truck started following us doing about 60 mph. There was NO road he could have turned off of and we were going straight. I didn’t wanna pull over cause I was too scared. Then I sped up and did around 45-50. At night. In the woods. On a windy road. With deer and other animals. Then when we got to the end of the road, we turned and the truck turned the other way” – Kristen

 

#2 Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum

The History

Welcome to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, home of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. This former high school was converted, in 1975, to Security Prison 21 by the Khmer Rouge. The prison was used as a base to torture and murder prisoners. Most of the prisoners were former soldiers and government officials from the Lon Nol regime. However, the Khmer Rouge leaders’ paranoia soon caught up with them, and they began shipping people from their own ranks to the prison. Many prisoners were tortured and tricked into naming their family and associates, who were then also arrested, tortured and murdered.

The Terror

The ghosts of the estimated 17,000 victims of Tuol Sleng continue to roam the halls, and odd happenings around the place are often attributed to them: and it isn’t hard to see why. Most were forced to confess to crimes they didn’t actually commit. Although most victims were Cambodians, many foreigners fell victim to the death machine, including Americans, French, a New Zealander, a Briton, Australians, Arabs, Indians, Pakistanis and Vietnamese. Only 12 people are thought to have survived. To close the entry on this sad history, here are the actual security regulations, the ten rules all prisoners had to abide by. All imperfect grammar is said in context due to poor translation.

  1. You must answer accordingly to my question. Don’t turn them away.
  2. Don’t try to hide the facts by making pretexts this and that, you are strictly prohibited to contest me.
  3. Don’t be a fool for you are a chap who dare to thwart the revolution.
  4. You must immediately answer my questions without wasting time to reflect.
  5. Don’t tell me either about your immoralities or the essence of the revolution.
  6. While getting lashes or electrification you must not cry at all.
  7. Do nothing, sit still and wait for my orders. If there is no order, keep quiet. When I ask you to do something, you must do it right away without protesting.
  8. Don’t make pretext about Kampuchea Krom in order to hide your secret or traitor.
  9. If you don’t follow all the above rules, you shall get many many lashes of electric wire.
  10. If you disobey any point of my regulations you shall get either ten lashes or five shocks of electric discharge.

#1 The Mines of Paris

The History

The seemingly infinite tunnels that run below the streets of Paris should not be confused with the Catacombs of Paris, the famous underground ossuary, although the mines are also mistakenly referred to as the catacombs. Exploring the mines is illegal, and penalties include heavy fines. The mines were used to dig out minerals from Paris’ varied sediment (the location where Paris was submerged for millions of years), and the tunnels are what got left behind.

The Terror

The mines are now unkept, unpatrolled and unsafe. As far as legends go, ancient cults and creatures patrol the depths. Spirits dwell in the infinite shadows, and if one wanders deep enough, and survives, they may even enter Hades itself. As far as reality goes, those legends can take a back seat. The tunnels stretch for close to 600 kilometers throughout the Parisian underground, and most of them are unmapped. Saying it is easy to get lost is an understatement. It is nearly impossible not to get lost. Many parts of the catacombs are hundreds of feet below street level. Some hallways are flooded, or are so narrow you have to crawl through them. There are holes that drop hundreds of feet, and manholes that are unreachable, luring unwary urban explorers in with false promises of freedom.

It’s hard to imagine that just beneath the surface of Paris are twisting mines and gigantic underground graveyards. In this underground graveyard, every skull was a living man or woman.

The infinite underground maze absorbs sound, mutes it, making it unlikely you will hear somebody yelling for help, even if they are not far away. Or, worse yet, making it unlikely somebody will hear you. Thousands of human bones litter the tunnels, due to overcrowding in many of Paris’ cemeteries. Weird paintings adorn the walls. Are they ancient? Are they new? Are they warnings? Or pleas for help? If you have claustrophobia, you will want to avoid the mines at all costs. If you don’t have claustrophobia, you probably will after a trip through the mines. Bring plenty of batteries, backup flashlights, clean water, a friend, and say a prayer before entering the mines of Paris. You will need them all.

    Haunted place are when unseen beings remain in these areas due to their deep attachments. They suffered tremendously as they can’t let go of things. Choosing to learn and practice dharma is the best choice to reduce our attachments. In turn this will create the causes for ourselves not to be reborn in the lower realm like those unseen beings. Interesting to read of these haunted places where furniture being frequently moved, man went missing, and many scary stories . Found all the stories too scary , to watch the videos yet. All the old castles and old house seem to be haunted as there many horrific happenings or death happened there. The true is there are more haunted places around too such as hospitals, graveyards , mortuaries and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  2. Edward Ooi on Nov 16, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    I realized that most of the haunted places are at hospitals, graveyards and jails. Maybe it is because a lot of people died there and, some didn’t know they are dead, some wants to revenge and some are too attach to somethings. Out of these 10 stories, the one I don’t understand the most is the second one. Their rules are really really weird, they were tortured and killed for no reason. Why would anybody force fake crimes on these peoples? And the most disturbing is that they would keep and arrange all the images and skulls of the peoples who were tortured and killed. So many innocent people were killed…… I wonder who build the entire underground? The whole place is so big that nobody truly knows how deep is it. Who and why would anyone arranged all the skeletons? What exactly happened down there long time ago? Will the scientists ever found out the truth behind of this place?

  3. Edward Ooi on Nov 20, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, if I have no idea that Riddle House is haunted and I happened to live in that house. I would already have a heart attack or mental problem. Because living in a house with furniture being moved by spirits who lives there is a life in hell. But Ithink that the spirits who lives there only do these kinds of things is because they want the people who just moved in to leave the place, after all the house is theirs.

  4. Lucas Tan on Nov 7, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    This is interesting as now i know which place not to be in the night and which university not to go to.

  5. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 26, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article with us here and so kindly put up relevant pictures as well as videos for each of these places. They certainly bring our imagination wild.

    Each of these places has its own unexplainable and sad stories.

    Out of these ten places, I feel the most towards Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, for as many as 17 thousands lives were lost in there and prior to their death these people were tortured.

    Death can come anytime, although we all tend to live our lives as if we are immortal. Ghosts stay in certain areas because of their deep attachments.

    What a great lesson for us that at the time of our death we should let go of all attachments or we will end up in ghostly state, which may last for many years and as much as I understand it will be hard for us to get out of ghost realm once we are in it.

    It is so true about what Rinpoche has said – “The more you wish to avoid death, the more suffering you will have when you do die, due to your aversion.” The more we are afraid of something, the more we need to face the truth. Similarly, the more we want to get, the more we need to give.

    I really love the bone room. I like to do a little meditation on my impermanence and watch that little video at the end there.

  9. David Lai on Mar 10, 2011 at 10:48 am

    Wow! This is sure an interesting list of haunted places. I used to think that hauntings and haunted places were more of an Eastern thing. But boy was I wrong about that one. I figured that since most Westerners are skeptical about supernatural phenomenon so that would make such phenomenon rarer in the West.

    Here in Malaysia, we have abundant haunted places and everyone seems to have a story to tell. However, with this little article I realise that if there are so many places in the West, that means that the supernatural must be pervasive in the west as well and if it exists with more skeptical people, it must simply exists. Some of these places have remarkable resemblance to some horror movies I have seen. Some of these would make a good horror movie too.

    I have great interest in collecting recipes, thanks for the sharing. Sometimes it takes a lot to think what to cook and what vegetables to buy. To me life make it easier with recipes. It helps us to achieve our goals with simple advice to do and to follow and getting a delicious, tasty meal for a day.

    Your choice of fruits and vegetables are very healthy, I loved them as well. A balanced diet is important to us because our body, organs and tissues need proper nutrition to work effectively and keeps us healthy.

    Thank you once again for your thoughtful sharing, soon will be looking for asparagus, brussels sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, butternut squash and to try your recipe on lentil stew.

    Sometimes it takes only a simple string of words to move our hearts. An act of kindness is so powerful that it can reach the hearts of those who really need help even ,the hearts of the blind as well as the deaf could feel it. And when we do something out of the goodness of our heart without asking for anything in return, we will be rewarded with that kindness as well. Never assume that any deed of kindness is futile. Rinpoche will not waste his chance to showcase or practice an act of kindness whenever Rinpoche see another human being, be it family, friends, acquaintance or even a strangers. That’s an example we should follow and always bare in mind. Even when we know that other people whom we don’t know won’t acknowledge our generosity, don’t let it stop us from being generous to them anyway. Well being kind to others can make the world a much brighter and peaceful place to live , even change the lives of others.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    All religions share a fundamental goal. All religions teach moral precepts for perfecting the functions of mind, body, and speech. To respect each other and promote compassion and loving-kindness toward others .It does not matter of what religion we are, it all the same to have our mind transform to be better.
    Wow …. Beautiful painting of Saraswati , looking at these two Indian depictions that Rinpoche particularly liked is a blessing. Truly stunning. And of the 2 Indian devotional songs is nice to hear even though do not understand the meaning of it.
    Thank you Pastor Niral for sharing.

    I not a fan of the Japanese Kaiju movie at all, first time coming across of this name…..Daimajin. Anyway glad to have knowledge of this Giant Demon God a stone warrior who protects the people against any harm. Interesting the local villagers, worshiped this mountain deity which was half-buried inside a mountain.
    The story of Daimajin movies reminds us not to engage in actions that will cause suffering in future, for ourselves and others.
    Thank you Pastor Niral for this wonderful sharing.

    In Buddhism, female deities are quite popular and powerful. Apart from Palden Lhamo, there are also other female deities who are as powerful, for examples, Saraswati, Ekajati, Vajrayogini, etc. In terms of spirituality and the potential to become a Buddha, there is no difference between men and women. If we practise the Dharma diligently, we will become a better human being.

    It is still a mystery how the Coral Castle was built. It is amazing how one man could single-handedly build a castle without using heavy machinery. There are many things science still cannot explain. Therefore, even if something has no scientific basis, it can be real, for examples, aliens, ufos, ghosts, gods, Buddhas, etc. We should always be open-minded so we can learn more.

    The Fourth Panchen Lama, Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen

    Soon after taking the abbacy of Tashilhunpo, Yonten Gyatso (yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1616), the Fourth Dalai Lama, visited there, arriving in Tibet from Mongolia for the first time. It would seem that Chokyi Gyeltsen played a role in the Tibetan acceptance of the Mongolian boy as the legitimate incarnation of Sonam Gyatso (bsod nams rgya mtsho, 1543-1588). The Fourth Dalai Lama requested Chokyi Gyeltsen accompanied him to Drepung, where he taught for some time, and then as he traveled to various Kadampa and Gelukpa monasteries in the region, including Reting (rwa sgreng) and various sites connected to Tsongkhapa’s activities in Lhoka.

    We are so fortunate to have a guru who can lead us in our spiritual path by giving us the right method and teaching. Guru is indeed like our Spiritual Doctor, giving us the treatment to our sickness and prescribing the medicine to us. Unfortunately, we students do not follow the instructions and neglect the kindness of our guru. Hence, when our negative karma ripen, we should not blame anyone but us, why didn’t we take the ‘medicine’ prescribed ? No point complaining if we are the one who do not want to change.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this article and explanation.

    It is simply amazing how Edward Leedskalnin can move coral stones of up to 30 tonnes by himself with simple tools. Something which I think science can’t explained like how pyramid is built during that period without machines.

    It is nice to see these warm stories of how human helped marine animals out from their life-threatening situation. There are a lot of attention given to prevent animal abuse in cases of dogs and cats. However, there are only a handful of attention given to marine animals.

    Fishes aren’t given the attention that they deserve because their cries normally went unheard. However, fishes are animals too and they do feel what a human being will feel. We should treat all animals the same and stop creating more suffering for them.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    If Dalai Lama has been worshipping Dorje Shugden for decades, consulted his oracles, composed prayers for Dorje Shugden, then how can he finally and suddenly see Dorje Shugden as negative? How could Dorje Shugden have ‘fooled’ or ‘misled’ such a high being as the Dalai Lama for so many years? That does not make sense. Since Dalai Lama is a highly realized being, he should be able to see Dorje Shugden as a superior being or a negative being from the very first time they ‘met’. This ability is inherent in highly attained beings such as H.H. the Dalai Lama. If we are to hypothetically say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can make mistakes, then this puts us all in a quandary because he saw Shugden as superior in earlier years but later as malevolent. Does this make sense? Because if he can make a mistake once, he can hypothetically make another one. So the ban and his current negative views about Dorje Shugden perhaps can be wrong? I am just presenting some hypothetics.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the mysterious part on Buddhism. I didn’t know divination is also practised in Buddhism, I have always thought divination is only practised by non-Buddhist. This shows how compassionate Buddha is, Buddha will use different ways to help people.

    Since most of us don’t have the karma or merit to connect with Buddha directly, divination is the best way to seek advice from an enlightened being. Taking refuge and asking for advice from an enlightened being is safe because Buddha is omniscient and Buddha will give us guidance that will truly benefit us.

    Dromton Gyelwa Jungne

    Dromtonpa has come down in history as both an enforcer of Second Propagation ethical standards and a holder of Atisa’s tantric lineage. According to the Blue Annals, Dromton was charged with expelling tantric practitioners from Atisa’s audience, this despite the fact that at Samye Chimpu (bsam yas ‘chims phu) Atisa gave Dromton initiation into tantric systems, including the Doha tradition of Bengal. The Blue Annals credits him with revising the translations of both sutra and tantras, including the Astasahastrika Prajnaparamita, and the Jnanasiddhi Tantra.

    The Fifth Dalai Lama, Ngawang Lobzang Gyatso

    In 1622 he was identified as the rebirth of the Fourth Dalai Lama, Yonten Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 04, yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1616) by Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen (blo bzang chos kyi rgyal mtshan, 1570-1662), who had been the tutor to the Fourth Dalai Lama. Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen gave him the name Lobzang Gyatso (blo bzang rgya mtsho) and enthroned him at Drepung Monastery (’bras spungs dgon). Much later the Fifth Dalai Lama gave Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen the title of Panchen Lama.

    Thank you for the sharing, I do agree in the article say man are responsible for everything in their life. In simply way man are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Only man use the reason and conscience with which they are endowed to act with humanity toward human, animal and planet.

    I truly agree with this article. Every single action that man has to do and done has to connect to one another for perfection in this world.

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
