Video of Tibetan Buddhist Monks Chanting in a Buddhist Monastery

I recorded this video of Tibetan Buddhist monks chanting in a Buddhist monastery in March 2013. This was during a special puja (act of worship involving different rituals) at the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery in Boudhanath, Nepal, better known as the "White Gompa". This special annual puja is called the Ngak-so ("Ocean of Amrita Mantric-Mending") Drubchen and it last for 9 days.

How can we attain world peace? Ahimsa: the philosophy of love

Yoga for peace

How can we attain world peace? How can we learn to live in peace and harmony? Every time that we hear news about wars, terrorism or any other sort of violence most of us probably ask ourselves these or similar questions. The ancient Indian yogis however gave us a very basic yet powerful principle to attain this peace and harmony. This principle is called ahimsa or non-violence, the philosophy of love.
