New temple discovered in Tarim Basin

Post by kirtu » Mon May 14, 2012 1:56 am

A previously unknown Buddhist temple, dating back some 1500 years, has been discovered in the Tarim Basin south of the Taklimakan Desert. The architecture of this temple is Indian and the art is from the Greco-Buddhist style.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

Wow that sounds rather significant to say the least. I'd love to see some pics though.
