One of the most gorgeous temples that we have seen in India. This Kailash temple devoted to lord Shiva is located in cave no. 16 at Ellora. It was built during the rule of the Rashtrakuta Empire. This masterpiece is created out of one single rock and was carved from top to bottom. The imagination, the accuracy and the architectural genius of people who built it at least a thousand years back is indeed very fascinating. Each stone and each statue carved on it makes you remember the creativity of those individuals who left such a great legacy to our rich culture.

Like you have already realised from my stories by now that I am just not being able to get over the beautiful Ellora Caves, here are some more from my solo walks in the caves.... * I was walking past this section of the caves, which are called the Buddhist caves and houses lot of Buddha statues scooped out of the mountain rocks. I noticed about a dozen of Buddhist monks marching past me in a queue and headed towards the other end of the caves. Looking at them I was reminded of my history classes from the school days, where my teacher had once explained how these caves were located on an ancient South Asian trade route and hence apart from serving as monasteries and temples, these caves also served as a rest stop for pilgrims. * Within minutes of this thought crossing my mind, I was climbing up in one of these caves, where there was this huge hall with these series of Buddha statues carved out on the walls and see what I saw right below the statues!!! The monks lined up and were seated below the statues to chant. The quiet hall was filled with the echoes of soft hums and the positive energy around was nothing less than divine. * #buddha #buddhist #buddhists #elloracaves #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia #heritage #indiaundiscovered #travelstoriesworld #travelling #travelholic #travelstories #tag_incredible_india

This is one of many meditation chambers and easily the most powerful and moving place I’ve ever sat and become quiet. I can’t fathom how many people have sat in this position right here in this meditation chamber over the last 1300 years. One of the other caves I sat in was deep in the mountain, pitch black and the harmonics when chanting inside were moving to say the least. I’ve had my mind blown exploring the Ellora and Ajanta Caves in Maharashtra this week. Carved straight out of the mountain, these collection of monolithic caves and places of worship have been used and created individually by groups of Buddhists, Hindus and Jains over a span of a thousand years beginning around 2,200 years ago. The detail and sheer quantity of rock moved is yet to be understood how it was accomplished. Although one local told me a story that monks were using special mantras to soften the rock by using a certain number of people, chanted a certain number of times, at a certain pitch and tone. I mean, the entire place has quartz, amethyst and apophalite crystal clusters busting out of the walls, literally. ————————————————————————- #india #incredibleindia #pooja #asana #vinyasaflow #vinyasa #yogabali #yoga #yogalove #yogagram #yogalife #meditation #pranayama #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #yogainspo #yogaeveryday #yogapractice #yogalifestyle #yogadaily #yogacommunity #meditation #vedanta #shiva #elloracaves #ajantacaves #omnamahshivaya #padmasana #sacredgeometry

Essa encomenda de uma amiga e pesquisadora expressa o resultado de uma ciência antiga-, o Varnika-bhanga. Diferentemente da escala das cores propostas por Le Corbusier no ocidente, as variações que seguem do Turquesa ao branco e do branco ao acajusado, remetem ao infinito. Os orientais antigos conquistaram a cor. É assim denominado-, "a conquista da cor", ou a "cor empírica". O Zinabre e o Acaju, são cores sagradas e amplamente difundidas no período clássico da arte hindu; a arte Gupta. O Varnika-bhanga é um entre oito cânones descritos nos sastras, (escritos sagrados hindus). #arteemgesso #arqueologia #artesanatocriativo #elloracaves #varnikabhanga #meditação # yoga
