Japanese proverbs include 四字熟語 (Yojijukugo Four-character idioms), ことわざ (Kotowaza proverbs) and 慣用句 (Kanyouku Common idioms). Japanese love proverbs and use them in everyday life frequently. Because traditional Japanese culture was tied to agriculture, many Japanese proverbs are derived from agricultural customs and practices. Many of them contain commentary on the behavior of women as well as natural phenomena. Some are from the Go game and Buddhism and many four-character phrases are from Chinese philosophy. The heavy employment of proverbs enables Japanese language to be compact, quick and simple. Among them are: 挨拶は時の氏神 (Aisatsu ha tokino ujigami) -- (lit.

Lojong (Tib. བློ་སྦྱོང་,Wylie: blo sbyong) is a mind training practice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on a set of aphorisms formulated in Tibet in the 12th century by Geshe Chekhawa. The practice involves refining and purifying one's motivations and attitudes. The fifty-nine or so slogans that form the root text of the mind training practice are designed as a set of antidotes to undesired mental habits that cause suffering. They contain both methods to expand one's viewpoint towards absolute bodhicitta, such as "Find the consciousness you had before you were born" and "Treat everything you perceive as a dream", and methods for relating to the world in a more constructive way with relative bodhicitta, such as "Be grateful to everyone" and "When everything goes wrong, treat disaster as a way to wake up." History of the practice[edit] Atiśa journeyed to Sumatra and studied with Dharmarakṣita for twelve years. Geshe Chekhawa is claimed to have cured leprosy with mind training. 1. 2. Lojong Lojong

Wie ein Londoner versucht, ohne Internet ein Date zu finden Wie ein Londoner versucht, ohne Internet ein Date zu finden Der Fortschritt unserer Gesellschaft lässt sich wohl daran ablesen, wie wir einen Partner kennenlernen. Im Mittelalter musste es noch die Cousine sein – man hatte keine Wahl –, heute finden wir unsere Partner online. Für unsere Kinder ist das vermutlich schon völlig normal, für die Generation vor uns völlig unverständlich – und auch für uns teilweise noch so neu, dass wir anscheinend noch viele Artikel und Filme brauchen, um das zu reflektieren. Wie zum Beispiel der Kurzfilm “Offline Dating“. Ob man nun online oder offline die Liebe seines Lebens findet, ist im Grunde egal.
Visit the Top 10 Happiest Countries in the World Visit the Top 10 Happiest Countries in the World Looking for a travel destination with great views and friendly people?

The same 13 countries have dominated the top of the list since the reporting began in 2012. While the results do not take into account the experiences from visitors of a country, the report serves as a great benchmark for travelers. 10.

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world by area. 8. The island of New Zealand has only been occupied by humans for about 800 years. 7.

Diese elf Grafiken zeigen uns, wie kurz das Leben wirklich ist Unser Leben ist oft so vollgestopft mit Arbeit und Verpflichtungen, dass wir ganz vergessen, wie kurz es doch eigentlich ist. Wir wissen zwar, dass die wirklich wichtigen Dinge im Alltag oft viel zu kurz kommen, unternehmen aber nur selten etwas dagegen. Wir sollten uns daher bewusst Zeit für Menschen und Dinge nehmen, die uns am Herzen liegen. Die Grafiken von Tim Urban von „Wait But Why“ können hier wie ein Weckruf sein. Denn Tim Urban hat die Lebensspanne eines Menschen in mehreren einfachen aber wirkungsvollen Bildern dargestellt. Er geht dabei davon aus, dass wir im Durchschnitt 90 Jahre alt werden. Aber seht selbst. So sieht das Leben eines Menschen aus, wenn man jedes einzelne der durchschnittlich 90 Lebensjahre als Raute darstellt. Und so sieht es aus, wenn man jeden einzelnen Monat des Lebens als Kreis darstellt. Und leider trifft das selbst dann noch zu, wenn die Lebenserwartung nicht in Jahren oder Monaten dargestellt wird, sondern die Wochen gezählt werden.
