I Bought a Brick for $ 2000

It seems that the crisis and spoke about the large U.S. electronics chain stores, but not in the sense in what you think. No, the sale is not dropped to a critical level, they have a crisis of another kind. At various American sites began to appear reports that buyers came home, are more often found in boxes instead of electronics bricks and stones!

First reported on adolescents, who instead received a Nintendo DS for a birthday a couple of stones, wrapped in Chinese newspapers. After some altercation, one of the stores Wall-Mart did behaved correctly and returned the money (138 dollars), and as compensation gave the card to $ 20. But other victims are much less fortunate - he got on much more than the amount which he has returned, no one is going. The guy I bought in Texas Best Buy Macbook Pro, instead of the box he found an ordinary brick, wrapped in packaging tape. Manager at the store said it only: " Boxes compiles and sealed Apple, and not we, like them and please", and left. Poor management of email sent Best Buy, but so far to no avail; Apple also has refrained from commenting. MDA is probably a shame to pay 2164 dollars for a brick ...

Beautiful Buddhist Sand Art

Tibetan Buddhist sand paintings are usually made of mandalas. In Tibetan, it is called dul-tson-kyil-khor ("mandala of colored powders").

The sand is carefully placed on a large, flat table. The construction process takes several days, and the mandala is destroyed shortly after its completion. This is done as a teaching tool and metaphor for the 'impermanence' (Pali: anicca) of all contingent and compounded phenomena (Sanskrit: Prati-tya-samutpa-da).

The mandala sand painting process begins with an opening ceremony, during which the lamas, or Tibetan priests, consecrate the site and call forth the forces of goodness. This is done by means of chanting, intention, mudra, asana, pranayama, visualisation, music and mantra recitation, etc.

On the first day, the lamas begin by drawing an outline of the mandala to be painted on a wooden platform. The following days see the laying of the colored sands, which is effected by pouring the sand from traditional metal funnels called chak-pur. Each monk holds a chak-pur in one hand, while running a metal rod on its serrated surface; the vibration causes the sands to flow like liquid.

Formed of a traditional prescribed iconography that includes geometric shapes and a multitude of ancient spiritual symbols (e.g.: Ashtamangala and divine attributes of yidam), seed syllables, mantra, the sand-painted mandala is used as a tool or instrument for innumerable purposes, amongst which re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants is elementary.
