It ia first post of the year .What could have been better than setting up a spiritual influence for 2020.It is very common to come across statues of Buddha while exploring Luang Prabang.May be it is the factor behind the enormous spiritual energy which the place wields in itself. Thanks to Air Asia and other regional airlines, it has been easier to reach this hidden gem. This place must be on itinery of any person who is backpacking/traveling across South East Asia.
Wat Arun is one of most famous Buddist temple in Bangkok.It derives its name from Hindu God Arun ( Sun ) and depicts the aura and the radiations of the Sun at the dawn.

Elephanta Island is situated few miles north east of the Apollo Bunder on the Gateway of India , Mumbai , the Financial capital of India.
Perhaps Mahesh Murti is the most famous sculpture of Elephanta caves.The three faces corrsoond to the three functions of God ( Shiva) , the creation, the protection and the destruction.
Another striking sculpture is “Ravananugraha Murti”.it depicts the story how Shiva humbled the pride of The demon king Ravana.When Ravana made an attempt to uproot the Kailash Paravat, the sacred abode of Lord Shiva, Shiva pressed the mountain down with the toe of his left foot, crushing the arms as well as the pride of Ravana.
The concept of Surya (Sun) is a symbol of radiance.This sculpture symbolizes a deeper connection with past while looking at the future with an open mind.
