The Ninety and Nine Buddhas of Lémisamen

Recommended Posts

Due to the Tartaric nature of some of the inhabitants of Eesdeheito, and their Mongol heritage, there is a small Buddhist community in the land. They belong namely to the Tantric school of thought (also known as Vajrayana, Mantrayana, Esoretic, or Diamond Vehicle Buddhism) like Europe’s only indigenous Buddhist people, Tibet and Mongolia. That means they have lamas and that…

 

Anyway, the Eesdeheito Buddhist community is quite active in the country’s local affairs and they have monasteries all over the place; the largest of monasteries is around the Temple of the Ninety and Nine Buddhas of Lémisamen, outside a small lake called Lémisamen. The Temple is pyramidic in shape, about five hundred metres high (it’s huge!) and includes about two thousand monks, mainly from Eesdeheito, Lontinia and Karnali.

 

I would like to invite you all to come to this temple and celebrate its restoration of the ninety-nine buddhas. Each buddha is about four metres in height and made from marble, covered in wax and textiles to make each buddha look “human”. They really look like giants!

 

The buddhas are made to look as if they could represent all of humanity. As such, one buddha looks Nordic, another like Mulatto, another Mongoloid, another Indian, and so on.

 

So let's have a celebration smile.gif

You're very welcome smile.gif

 

This tea is made from plants which are usually frozen during the winters, so the leaves taste differently than if you planted them in warmer regions. Of course, you need much more leaves of tea in one cup to get it strong enough. If not you can just drink it black. That's what I usually do.

Good Morning To You, Sir Vali,

 

Well, I guess I would normally take my tea black, then . . .

 

I prefer for my tea to be a little on the strong side . . .

 

Usually, first thing in the morning, I like to have two cups of tea with cream and sugar, then the rest of the day I drink a zillion cups of black tea . . .

 

Have an absolutely splendiferous morning . . . forthwith . . .

Sorry to interrupt the tea discussion, but I was checking out the kingdom. Very nice. What kind of well-thought out culture has Buddhists and Tartars? This one.

 

But enough about that. Let's party like it's nirvana already.
