The Leshan Giant Buddha is the world’s largest stone Buddha statue located in the Sichuan province of China, near the city of Leshan. The monumental structure was first carved out of a cliff where the Minjiang, Dadu, and Qingyi rivers meet during the Tang Dynasty (618-907AD) and continues to stand tall today, proving to be a tourist attraction for spiritual followers and art enthusiasts.
Despite the fact that the seated Maitreya Buddha remains embedded in the natural environment, centuries since its initial construction, it has inevitably weathered down over the years. In fact, the giant figure was originally adorned with a thirteen-story, gold-plated, wooden structure meant to serve as a sort of shelter from extreme weather conditions. It has since been destroyed, leaving the 233-foot-tall Buddha to fend for itself. It is now as much a part of the environment as the mountain it is carved into. Locals even say, “The mountain is a Buddha and the Buddha is a mountain.” For pics [Read more...]

Meditation is the art of focusing 100% of your attention in one area. The practice comes with a myriad of well-publicized health benefits including increased concentration, decreased anxiety, and a general feeling of happiness.
Although a great number of people try meditation at some point in their lives, a small percentage actually stick with it for the long-term. This is unfortunate, and a possible reason is that many beginners do not begin with a mindset needed to make the practice sustainable. [Read more...]

Boner alert: Scientists/bloggers at NaturalNews recently compiled a list of sensual aphrodisiac foods that are said to improve your sex life. Surprisingly, our date night go-tos – Cheetos and Red Bull – didn’t make the list. Which is weird, because we always score, although admittedly our dates are usually NASCAR fans who burp a lot. NaturalNews indicated that oysters, bananas, chocolate, and truffles contain either amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, or scents that may help desperate dudes get lucky, but while having a fridge-full of sensual foods may help a batter round the bases to home, each aforementioned piece of produce has the potential to ruin a night of fun and fornication, big time.

We’ve all heard that food is the best medicine, but a new study out of the University of Arizona found that nutrient-dense foods could also be useful as topical applications. According to researcher Sally Dickinson, a naturally occurring compound in broccoli is loaded with chemopreventive properties. The nutrient is known as Sulforaphan, and if added to the list of ingredients in sunscreen, could dramatically increase the products cancer-preventing properties. “Sulforaphane is the kind of compound that has so many incredible theoretical applications if the dosage is measured properly,” Dickinson says. “We already know that it is very effective in blocking sunburns, and we have seen cases where it can induce protective enzymes in the skin.”

1. They’re Easy
Just choose your fruit and veggies, throw them in a blender, and drink the smoothed mixture. OK, it’s not so easy if you don’t own a blender. In fact, it’s dashed difficult. Ever tried forcing raw spinach through a sieve? If you have a blender, then it takes no more time and effort to make a green smoothie than to drink one!
2. They’re Portable
Kept cool and sealed, most green smoothies will stay fresh for 24 hours or more. So with the right container, you can take a chilled green smoothie with you almost anywhere—work, the park, the gym, the train—to keep you refreshed. Glass or stainless steel containers are often suggested as the best storage options, so a vacuum flask might be the way to go if you want to keep your smoothie cool on the move. [Read more...]
