Cave no 67 has been classified as a chaitya-vihara, since features common to both spaces are observed. It is also commonly called Chitrasala (picture gallery) because of the presence of sculptural reliefs portraying various miracles performed by the Buddha during his lifetime. Once such example is the miracle performed at Shravasti that has depictions of the Buddha seated atop a lotus. In brief, the Shravasti Miracle tells a story of King Prasenajit, who had embraced the teachings of Buddha, regularly visited the enlightened one at Jetavana. His adherence was challenged by sceptics who demanded proof of the Buddha’s power. Buddha accepted the challenge on the king’s behalf and caused a mango tree to sprout within a day. Under it he created an array of representations of himself, seated and standing on lotuses and causing fire and water to emanate from his body.
Cave no 67 is also significant because of the presence of Tara, the goddess of Tantric or Vajrayana Buddhism and the Buddhism’s equivalent to the principle of Shakti or the female divine.
Is this 2002 the ultimate driver in 2018? 🤔
The common problem with classics is they often look great but drive poorly. While modern cars often skimp in the looks department but drive well. But what if you didn’t have to chose between cool looks and the driving experience. Somewhat of a quasi-European restomod, we think this 2002 might be the perfect car for the classic millennial classic enthusiast in 2018. While not exactly rare with nearly 400k produced, the 2002 undeniably one of most distinct bimmers to hit the pavement and influenced the direction of the brand up through today. Offered an RM Sotheby's Specialist, this example was restored and given a personal touch with its Golf (yellow) exterior. It also has been upgraded with a five-speed manual transmission, sport seats, 14-in. ATS five-spoke wheels, Hella driving lights, among many other tasteful additions. So for those seeking performance and practicality in 2018 - is this 2002 is the ultimate answer? 😎

Here’s my non-Bowie musical collection ! What are your favourites besides Bowie ? Recognize anything you like among those records ?
I’m glad I took those pictures, it allowed me to finally organise this parallel collection, which has been in the wrong order since about forever. I’m sorry about the quality of it all, the lighting is obviously terrible, looks like I’m no aesthetic account 😅
Well, you’ll spot some Wings/McCartney, whom I really adore. He has been one of the easiest artist to collect for me, since his vinyls are quiet cheap and weren’t a huge struggle to find here. I don’t really know why it’s like that, perhaps because he’s still alive, or not collected that much (which is a shame !) 🤔 If you’re wondering where to start, I’d strongly suggest RAM, At The Speed Of Sound, or Tug of War.
There is also some Lennon, of course. My all time favourite is the Plastic Ono Band one with Mother, God, Isolation and Working Class Hero -masterpieces, as simple as that-.
Then there’s some Beatles, indeed 😁 You probably don’t need my help for that, history knows how great they are, right ? I certainly wish I had more of them, but I’m really happy with the ones I’ve got already !
You’ll also spot Queen (you might have guessed from my username -I LOVE them-). It’s extremely weird considered how popular they were, but I’m really struggling to find Queen records. Maybe people keep them at home because it’s too good..
Another band I wish I had more of is Supertramp, they’re one of my all time favourite, criminally underrated. I’ve been lucky enough to grow up with them, since my mum’s a huge fan, and I’m also blessed with the fact that my best friend is as obsessed with them as I am ! I highly recommend them, especially the albums Famous Last Words And Crime of the Century. Masterpieces masterpieces masterpieces.
Finally, I’ve got a few outsiders, a MJ and an ELO record, which are gifts from a great friend of mine (and I love both of them 😉) and Nina Hagen and AC/DC which are gifts from me to mum, to remind her of her punk rock youth. (To be continued ⬇️)
