The #foodogs decided to celebrate the arrival of spring with a visit to their friends the Buddha Dogs. It was a time to smell the daffodils, show off hats and bask in the sun. It's good to have friends - even if they don't say much. Scroll along to see the Foo Dogs' album - they worked hard on it.

Quan Yin is a Buddhist deity of compassion. Her spiritual archetype, however, exists across many different religions and cultures. Mother Mary within Christianity and Sophia within Gnosticism, for example, represent similiar all-loving and all-merficul qualities.
Many beautiful art pieces, theater skits, short stories and community projects were born out of Domain Day. This one, however, stands out as an intelligent integration of the creative and spiritual domains beautifying and uplifting our campus.
The Spiritual Domain Group designed and built this shrine with Quan Yin as its center piece. She had long stood by the water-feature in the outdoor classroom, before Rainbow teachers and Spiritual Domain Group leaders, Mark Hanf and Justin Pilla, spotted her and felt her to be the perfect point of inspiration from which to build a shrine.
After having smudged the area with sage, the dozen students began by placing their own personal artifacts within the center of an imaginary circle. Students then took turns placing the large rocks in a measured and intentional formation to mark the boundary of the shrine. Max had been gathering these large obelisk- and sphere-shaped stones over the course of several visits to the same enchanted forrest creek. The mindfulness with which every piece of this altar was put together cast a spell of wonder over the young spiritualists. In between building the shrine, they picked up instruments from a blanket lined with shakers and hand drums to accompany the ceremony with music.
Thank you, Spiritual Domain Group, for leaving behind this radiant evidence of your connection to spirit. You have altered our space and given us a sanctuary at which to breath and center. We invite all who stop by our campus to visit Quan Yin, and if inspired, to leave her a token of your gratitude.
I love going to garage sales because sometimes you can find some of the most interesting and beautiful things. I love this little thing. Its so intricate and beautiful and I love it. I'm working on trying to start making my art something that is more representative of me, trying to find my style. And surrounding myself with artistic, beautiful, and interesting things is so helpful for me. Also sorry about the hard to see pic, its super bright today~ #garagesale#asian#shrine#japaneseshrine#miniature#art#artist#artistlife#insperation#velius_unseen#selfdiscovery
William Dalrymple's celebrated travelogue 'City of Djinns' – a record of the year the Scottish writer spent in Delhi as a young correspondent – deeply inspired photographer Darragh Mason Field. After spending three weeks in India in 2009, he returned to the country last October to search for djinns – supernatural beings formed of “scorching fire". Every day this week we will be featuring images from the series he shot in Delhi. Here, a pilgrim leaves a donation at one of the shrines of Nizamuddin Aliya. To read more, click the link in the bio.
Fushimi Inari-Taisha is probably one of the most beautiful shrines in Kyoto. It sits at the foot of the mountain with thousands of shrines gates lined up on the pathway up to the top of the mountain. The hike is no simple task as it took us about an hour and half to get to the top.
