At a distance of only 10-km from the famous Hindu pilgrimage Varanasi, after attaining Enlightenment the Buddha went to Sarnath. Lord Buddha had visited Sarnath looking for his five companions who abandoned him in Rajgir while they deviated from the viewpoint of Lord Buddha on self-mortification. Here in the Deer Park, he delivered his first sermon, set in motion the Wheel of Law (Maha-Dharmachakra Pravartan). The Emperor Ashoka (c 304 - 232 BC), who spread the Buddha's message of love and compassion throughout his vast empire, visited Sarnath around 234 BC, and erected a stupa here. Several Buddhist structures were raised at Sarnath between the 3rd century BC and the 11th century AD, and today it presents the most expansive ruins amongst places on the Buddhist trail. The ruins, the museum and temple are all within walking distance. Attractions Dhamekha Stupa The stupa is the most impressive structure in Sarnath. Built around 500AD the excavations have revealed that some earlier construction was present at the site. The stupa is a place where one can see the devoted Buddhists circumambulating the structure, Ashoka might have built the stupa to earmark the Dharmachakrapravartana to five ascetics. Chaukhandi: The first impression of the ancient Buddhism monuments while one enters Sarnath from Varanasi, this Chaukhandi was built to mark the meet of Lord Buddha with his five companions. Todar Mal added an octagonal tower to the structure to commemorate the arrival of Emperor Akbar to the city in 1588. Asokan Pillar - This Pillar is the national emblem of India, presents a splendid representation of art during Ashoka's period, and the Asoka Wheel down the base adorns the Tricolor national flag. The pillar also records the visit of Ashoka to Sarnath. The year of his visit is said to be around mid 3rd century BC. It is interesting to note that at one time, the Ashoka Pillar of Sarnath stood over 17 meters in height. Its capital with the four lions back to back that has been adopted as the official emblem of modern India can be seen in the museum at Sarnath. If you are in Sarnath, don't miss this pillar. The Monasteries - The Buddhist temple built only in 1931, claims to have Buddha's original relics. Moreover, the temple houses some of the most interesting mural paintings depicting the story of Buddha's life. The Digambar Jain temple - Associated to Shreyanshnath, a Jain Tirthankar, this temple famous among the Jain community and good for visualizing some interesting paintings and sculptures depicting the life of Lord Mahavira.

Ah, dimenticavo: nella customizzazione del mio amico su Vista, il Centro Protezione PC e il Firewall sono disattivati.Poi forse Windows è davvero più sicuro di Windows, ma se devo pigliare a calci lo schermo con un dual core, preferisco un sistema reattivo e un po meno sicuro.

Da appassionato di bias cognitivi e modelli mentali auto-legittimati ho molto apprezzato la lettura di questo articolo, per il quale ti ringrazio. Tuttavia mi resta ancora la curiosità di conoscere meglio Daniel Kahneman, soprattutto per quanto riguarda lopera riguardante le tecniche di difesa dal marketing (ritengo ne abbiamo tutti parecchio bisogno). Magari puoi darmi una mano?

Communication is the beginning and the end of all human problems. There are just too many things that can go wrong and too few that can go right. You cant assume anything except that you will be misunderstood.

Consignment stores run the gamut from dreadful to the best finds ever. We were in Ventura, CA, one day when a new Goodwill was just opening. We were second in line and my wife made a beeline for the shoes, and got a pair of blue-and-white polka dot heels for $2 that blow people away!

Elas podem potencializar a dieta, acelerando os resultados, porém só fazem sentido como
coadjuvante de uma rotina saudável que inclua exercícios e também
alimentação balanceada”, ressalta a nutricionista Flávia Morais, da rede de lojas Mundo Verde, que comercializa as cápsulas.
