Ступа Сваямбунатх [с неп.स्वयंभू или Swayambu или Swoyambhu] - храмовый комплекс на холме в восточной части Катманду. Включает в себя буддийскую ступу, 2 индуистских храма, а также буддийский монастырь. Местные говорят, что они уже забыли о длинном названии «Сваямбунатх» и переняли «Monkey Temple» от туристов из-за невероятного количества обезьян на территории🐒🐒🐒🐒🐒
Основная легенда происхождения ступы Сваямбунатх говорит о том, что много веков назад, этот холм представлял собой остров на озере и один из семи Будд прошлого обронил семя белого лотоса 𑁍 Когда цветок начал расцветать, Боддхисаттва, находящийся неподалеку, увидел над островом голубое свечение и был очарован его силой, разрубил скалы свои мечом, чтобы люди тоже смогли добраться до священного места. #monkeytemple#swayambunath#exploreNepal
"Jack, these bells are beautiful. They remind me of my childhood." I pointed my fingers towards the bells hanging. .
. Jack nods his head, "Yes they do, but of my school days. Do you remember the reading sessions in schools."
. "Yes I do, how can I forget good old days." I looked at Jack and replied. .
. Jack laughed and looked at me, "You know when I used to read out loud in class, it was a joy for everyone else because I would fumble and mispronounce things so badly."
. Taking a deep breath, Jack touched the bells...... "I used to try to count how many people were in front of me and then work out which paragraph I would have to read out and start trying to learn it. And I would sit there thinking, 'Please let the bell go so that it doesn't get round to me.' But it never happened." .
. Jack looked at me with misty eyes, "But one day I decided to face my fear.... I walked in the class like a warrier, determined to fight back. Took the book in my hand and started reading, I was fumbling.... and was struggling with the words... but kept on reading and repeating the words until I pronounced them correct. Tears were running down my eyes and without caring whether I am fumbling or misspelling or people looking at me. By the time I conquered over my fear it was the last work of the chapter. And that was the start of new me." .
. I looked at Jack, I was not fumbling anymore. I didn't cared about the bells to ring, didn't cared about the Start or the End. I am a warrior now.... Fighting my fear... Not counting the time for bells to ring. I am a new me.

Probably one of the best selfies I ever had. Had fun meeting my long lost family 😂
..... Luego de bajar las extensas escalinatas del templo del mono en Kathmandu encontre está Bella imagen y algunos escalones más abajo, habia una pareja humana con la misma acción que este par de primates. No pude hacer la imagen de los humanos debido a que la handycam se descargó por completo . Pero no podré desligar esos dos momentos . Esta foto con ese recuerdo.
J – Jealousy ;))
Chimpanzees share an estimated 98.6% DNA with humans which makes them our closest living relatives. They experience many of the same emotions as us including happiness, sadness, fear, empathy and jealousy. Here is young Solo Jr with Mama P giving an example of one of these emotions!

🙏 Roaming around the Swayambhunath Stupa, we found this beautiful sculpture carved out of just one piece of stone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟Apparently, the figure depicted in this sculpture is Dīpankara Buddha, one of the Buddhas of the past. He is said to have lived on Earth one hundred thousand aeons ago.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
