Asher’s Trip To China Part 2

Hello everyone, and welcome to part 2 of my China trip! I am overjoyed at the response of the first part, and hope that you enjoy this one too. Now, let’s continue this awesome journey!

Totem.jpg

  • A very cool totem that is near the Forbidden Temple. I love the use of dragons that circle around the massive structure.

Temple out.jpg

  • I love the architecture of this building, and the dragons give it a very powerful aura.

 

Trippy tiles

  • Another excellent form of architecture with very beautiful tiles.

Jade

  • This is a beautiful bowl that’s made out of white jade. In ancient China, jade was considered to be the most expensive material.

Amazing Buddhas from the Palace Museum.

Asher’s Adventures In Thailand (Temple of The Emerald Buddha) aka (Wat Phra Kaew)

One of the most amazing things about Thailand was the various temples scattered throughout the country. This particular place moved me on an emotional and spiritual level. I took many pictures there, and will be discussing them below. Keep in mind that I wasn’t able to take pictures of the titular Buddha due to the amazing importance to Buddhism and Thai culture. Now, let’s begin this spiritual adventure!

Temp of.jpg

(This was the view of the temple from the outside, and it completely blew me away. The preservation of the temple is incredible, and its elegant design makes it a very popular monument.)

Gold 

(As we travel into the temple, there are many Buddhas scattered around, and each of them look different. This photo is of one of these Buddhas, and it seems to emit a serene aura. Also, behind it is a tower made out of pure gold. It’s nearly too beautiful for words.)

Yakusa.jpg 

(This fearsome looking creature is known as a Yaksha. Yaksha are sacred guardians of temples that ward off bandits.)

More gold.jpg

(Here’s another picture of the interior. As you can see, many people came to the temple, to admire and respect the Buddhas. I absolutely adore the gold plated towers, and have never seen anything like it before.)

Grand palace.jpg

(This particular picture is of the decor of the Grand Palace. The roof looks as if it were made out of dragon scales or ribbon candy. If you look closer, you can see the dragon insignia on each arch way. 

Gold finale.jpg

(This final picture is of a golden walkway that leads to another Buddha. As you can see, the structures seem completely untouched for thousands of years.)

 

Asher’s Jukebox Part 160

Starliteby KOAN Sound & Asa from the album “Sanctuary” 2015: This has got to be one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard. It’s an immensely powerful piece that relieves the body of any stress. The piece is an amazing blend of Classical and Electronic music. It starts with a beautiful piano, and then the drum machine, violin, and synthesizer start up. The serenity and emotional power of this song can bring people to tears, and this alone made it have a spot on my jukebox. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.

Now, close your eyes, and get transported into a world of wonder!
