Ba Thien Hau Temple in Saigon🇻🇳(Part4) ——————————————
Ba Thien Hau Temple in Saigon is a Buddhist temple dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess, Mazu. It’s believed that she protects and rescues ships and people on the sea by flying around on a mat or cloud. Mazuism is connected with traditions and beliefs from both Taoism and Buddhism. Mazuism is therefore an incorporation of different aspects and traditions which have merged to form a new belief.
Ba Thien Hau temple was built in 1760 to honour Mazu the ‘Lady of the Sea’ and when you enter through the iron gate you will see massive stone incense burners in front of the entrance of Mazu’s altar. The exterior is beautifully designed with the traditional curvy roof on which small porcelain figures are standing symbol for themes from Chinese religion and legends. The interior has colourful dioramas decorating the roof by representing scenes from the nineteenth century in a Chinese city. Besides this, the most prominent visible interior design items are the three statues of the ‘Lady of the Sea’ that dominate the main altar. When visiting make sure you take your time to look at all the small corners this temple has, as there are many sculptures, statues and artworks to discover.

Life is a ride. Things change, people change, but you will always be YOU; so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone or anything. You have to dare to be yourself, in this moment, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be. It’s about realizing that even on your weakest days you get a little bit stronger, if you’re willing to learn. Nurture your self-worth. Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is simply believing you’re worthy of the trip. And you are! You are worth it. Tattoo that right onto your brain… Seriously! The world starts to respond when you believe that about yourself. It doesn’t always look like you thought it would, but positive shifts begin to take place when you start to recognize and acknowledge your own self-worth. So watch your thoughts and stop any self-deprecating thoughts from discouraging you. Remind yourself more often, that you are strong, you are capable of handling just anything. Let go of all that hurts you. Let go off all that brings you down. Letting go is not giving up. Letting go is surrendering any obsessive attachment to particular people, outcomes and situations. Surrender means showing up every day in your life with the intention to be your best self, and to do the best you know how, without expecting life to go a certain way. Have goals, have dreams, aspire and take purposeful action and build great relationships, but detach from what life must look like. Surrender brings inner peace and joy, and lest we forget that our outer lives are a reflection of our inner state of being. ✨🌈👁📿🕉🔱🌷⌛️🌀🔆🐍💀🍃🌙🌸🗿🐚🔔🌈🙏🏻✨ Love, light & Peace ~ Hari Om Tat Sat ~ Om Namah Shivaya ✨🌈👁📿🕉🔱🌷⌛️🌀🔆🐍💀🍃🌙🌸🗿🐚🔔🌈🙏🏻✨
कौन कहता है कि ईश्वर नज़र नहीं आता, एक वही नज़र आता है जब कोई और नज़र नहीं आता। ~ हरहर महादेव जय भोलेनाथ !! 🌲🕉🌲 Namaste Beautiful Souls. It's time for Monday Motivation. 🌀👁🌀 When the going gets tough & you feel like you are the only miserable person in this world, when you are worried about how the future will turn out because the things are not going as you planned, turn to God!! Trust your Savior and turn to him in hard times. HE cares for u, Ease your worries by meditating on his name and praying to him. God rushes to His devotees whenever we calls on Him with sincere prayers & devotion. ; "So you think Shiva can save you from my grasp? Yama said to Markandaya." And yes indeed, Shiva jumped to rescue Markandaya even from clutches of death due to his strong devotion. Lord Krishna came rushing to save Draupadi, when she called on Him when kauravas, Duryodhan tried to disgrace her. Lord Vishnu came down to earth to protect Gajendra, the elephant from the clutches of Crocodile and awards him salvation and he goes to Vaikuntha with Shri Vishnu. Again Prahlad was saved by Shri Vishnu. ''Those who worship Me, are always devoted to Me, always meditate upon Me, Having always fixing their minds upon Me - to them, I swiftly rescue from the ocean of birth and death" ~ God certainly rescues his devotees. Don't let God slip out of your mind till you live on this earth. Do not let anything else take control of your mind. Let him always be with you in all of your circumstances, let him protect you always from all troubles of life. So take a deep breath when you’re rejected from something good. Be patient. Be positive. Gods rejection is often his redirection. When something isn’t working, be quiet. Listen to God’s direction in your heart. Perhaps HE is saying, “There’s a better relationship or a better job for you than this". Success doesn't teach you much, Only failure teach you your most powerful lessons of victory. See everything as a blessing. Its through challenges that we can draw more close to Lord. Realise now that all things work out for good. Soar High, be strong, and believe that there are better things in store for you! 📸 Pic @irina.rozhikhina
