Approaching the ruins

Monastery #4

View from the upper floor

Many of the 108 monasteries that once existed here have two or more floors, with 30 or 40 rooms per floor. Only 11 monasteries have been excavated so far. Many of the rest are thought to lie buried under the surrounding villages.

Steps and passages (more)





Well inside monastery #4

Each monastery had a well, often with an octagonal cross-section.

Shrine across Monastery #4

Across each monastery was a chaitya, or temple, with an image of the Buddha.

The local guides say that this is where the visiting scholar Hiuen Tsang meditated, in a dark corner at the end of this corridor (the end where the photographer stands).

Wood fired ovens

These ovens apparently served multiple needs -- cooking ovens, smelting copper, and other laboratory work.

Bathroom with drains

Not a toilet but a bathing / washing place. Well-designed open drains are a common sight in these monasteries.

Catwalk between
Monasteries #1 and #4

Adjacent monasteries were connected by these catwalk like constructions. A narrow corridor between monasteries (this one used as the main entrance to the ruins) is typical.

84000 Khandas  As Found in the Pali Suttas


Traditionally there are 84,000 Dhamma
Doors - 84,000 ways to get Awakeness. Maybe so; certainly the Buddha taught a
large number of practices that lead to Awakeness. This web page attempts to catalogue those found in the
Pali Suttas (DN, MN, SN, AN, Ud & Sn 
1). There are 3 sections:

The discourses of Buddha are divided into 84,000, as
to separate addresses. The division includes all that was spoken by Buddha.”I
received from Buddha,” said Ananda, “82,000 Khandas, and
  from the priests 2000; these
are 84,000 Khandas maintained by me.” They are divided into 275,250, as to the
stanzas of the original text, and into 361,550, as to the stanzas of the
commentary. All the discourses including both those of Buddha and those of the
commentator, are divided  into 2,547
banawaras, containing 737,000 stanzas, and 29,368,000 separate letters.

A team is working to translate all the Pali Suttas to
English. It will take 20 years to do so.

Each of them could be made as episodes and
video-graphed, animate pictures and moving images could be added along with
relevant chantings.

All beings in the Central Realm, and those in the Pure Lands, while moving upon
the Earth and in the Heavens, continually shower compassion upon all living
beings, affording them equanimity and peace, that they might cultivate day and
night. By constantly invoking this sutra, one is liberated from the pain of
death and birth, and freed from all the many kinds of suffering.

All the transformation bodies of Avalokitesvara
and all the bodhisattvas
have vowed to liberate every being in samsara,
and to cleanse all sufferings when called upon.

One who has non-dual faith in Buddha
will be greatly blessed with guidance.
By keeping intact the root of virtue
one will be able to practice this,
and with one thousand recitations,
the practice blends into one’s mindstream.

Then one remains unharmed by fire or weapons,
and anger is transformed into happiness.
Even those who are left for dead
returns thereby to life.
One must not doubt this,
for it is the word of Buddha.

The High King Avalokitesvara
In truth removes all obstacles.
Even in the most grave plight
One is saved from death.
This is the truth all Buddhas announce,
Therefore pay them homage.
By reciting this praise one thousand times,
One purifies the most negative of karmas.
Those fortunate ones endowed with indestructible faith
Are to always uphold this sutra.

Recite the name of the Eight Mahasattvas:

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva Mahasattva
Namo Maitreya Bodhisattva Mahasattva,
Namo Akasa-garbha Bodhisattva Mahasattva,
Namo Samanta-bhadra Bodhisattva Mahasattva,

Namo Manjusri Bodhisattva Mahasattva,
Namo Sarva-nivaraNaviskambhin Bodhisattva Mahasattva,
Namo Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Mahasattva,
Namo all venerable Bodhisattva Mahasattvas.

May these merits and virtues
be spread universally to everything.

Fully recite this one thousand times,
And serious sins will be purified.

Marjoram (Origanum
majorana, Lamiaceae) is a somewhat

cold-sensitive perennial herb or undershrub with sweet pine

citrus flavours. It is also called Sweet Marjoram or Knotted

Marjoram and Majorana hortensis.

The name marjoram (Old French majorane, Medieval Latin

majorana) does not directly derive from the Latin word maior


Marjoram is cultivated for its aromatic leaves, either green
or dry,

for culinary purposes; the tops are cut as the plants begin to

flower and are dried slowly in the shade. It is often used in

combinations such as Herbes de Provence and Za’atar.

Although considered cold-sensitive, marjoram can sometimes

prove hardy even in zone 5.

Related species

Orehellino (Origanum vulgare, sometimes listed with
Marjoram as

Origanum majorana) is also called Wild Marjoram. It is a

common in southern Europe in dry copses and on hedge-banks,

with many stout stems 30-80 cm high, bearing short-stalked

somewhat ovate leaves and clusters of purple flowers. It has a

stronger flavor and a more penetrating quality.

A member of the mint family, marjoram was often placed on the

graves of the ancient Greeks to symbolize happiness in this

and the one after. Available in many different forms, sweet

marjoram is the one most commonly used in everyday cooking.

“Wild marjoram” is actually oregano. Marjoram is a
component of

both fines herbes and herbes de Provence.

Just as marjoram looks like a more delicate version of

its flavor is also oregano lite. It’s a great flavoring in
sauces, as

well as meats. And unlike oregano, marjoram is subtle enough

pair with fish and lighter dishes. As with many of the more

delicate spices, it’s best to add it toward the end of the

period so that the flavor does not dissipate.

Dried marjoram is often used to flavor sauces, and both leaf

ground versions are good options for slow-cooking stews and
