Chinese Man Travels Thousands of Miles to be Baptized

Another adult Baptism recently took place on the banks of the Haliacmon River, the longest river contained entirely in Greece, flowing 185 miles through the Greek regions of West Macedonia and Central Macedonia, reports Romfea.

This time the new convert traveled thousands of miles from far away China to be baptized at the humble Monastery of the Virgin Kallipetras, in Veria, in northern Greece. The monastery is a male coenobium, dating back to at least 1100 AD. The name of the monastery is connected with a huge rocky column nearby, known as “Kallipetra.” St. Gregory Palamas is among the many saints who have lived and struggled there.

The former Su, now Constantine, received the gifts of the Holy Spirit with exemplary devotion, fasting, and prayer, on Saturday, September 2, 2017. The Baptism was celebrated by the abbot of the monastery, Archimandrite Palamas, reports inveria.gr.

Three members of his family traveled to Greece together with him.

ORTHODOX ADVICES

Nilus Stryker, San Francisco, California, USA:

I had been a Buddhist for ten years. I was ordained after seven years of study with my teacher in a small family line of the Nyingma Lineage of Vajarayana (Tibetan ) Buddhism. I had a Spiritual Master in that lineage whom I loved and still love. He was, and continues to be an example of kindness in my life. It was through his instruction that I began to see the world with wider eyes and heart. I was ordained as a Ngakpa in the Continue reading “Through The Eastern Gate: Nilus Stryker, San Francisco, California, USA – From Buddhism to Orthodoxy”

What Yoga Really Is

By

Johannes Aagaard

Aarhus University, Danmark

 

The philosophy of yoga can be expressed as follows:

“Ashes are fire, ashes are water, ashes are earthy everything is ashes, mind, sight, and the other senses are ashes.” (Atharva Siras)

All things in life are transitory, and pain, suffering, and death lurk behind everything. All of life with its omnipresent suffering and death goes on and on in an eternal cycle (samsara or the reincarnation cycle) from which no one escapes. Life is an endless wandering through relentless and insurmountable suffering. The future holds only further rebirths, and whether one is inching towards a better life or sinking into worse life makes little difference.

For all life is ashes.

Hinduism in all its various forms is first of all an attempt: escape from this relentless cycle of rebirth. It is not death wish because the aim is to escape death as well as life. Hindus wish to escape from life with good reason – for life on the Indian subcontinent is Continue reading “What Yoga Really Is – By Johannes Aagaard Aarhus University, Danmark”

聖帕提克的護心鎧甲 St Patrick’s Breast Plate

今日
我奮袂而起。
我向聖三位一體,我們的上帝祈求,
我的心
憑藉著上帝的大能,
憑藉著堅定的信仰,
憑藉著深刻的告解,
向那唯一的造物主。

今日
我奮袂而起。
基督的誕生與洗禮,
基督的受難與埋葬,
基督的復活與升天,
基督下降陰府與審判,
給予我力量。

今日
我奮袂而起。
智慧天使基路伯(Cherubim)的愛使我堅強。
我在
天使的順服中,
大天使的幫助中,
復活的希望中,
得到報償。
我在
宗主教的祈禱中,
先知的預言中,
告解者的信仰中,
童貞女的潔淨中,
賢德之人的言行中,
得到力量。

今日
我奮袂而起。
天上的國度,使我振奮:
那裡陽光普照,月光四射,光彩奪目。
那裡風速敏捷,光線奔馳,
那裡海深,地穩,岩堅固。

今日
我奮袂而起。
上帝的力量為我領航:
上帝的大能支持我,
上帝的智慧帶領我,
上帝的眼睛嚮導我,
上帝的耳朵傾聽我,
上帝的口舌教導我,
上帝的雙手守護我,
上帝的道路引導我,
上帝的盾甲庇護我,
上帝是我之主,
拯救我遠離惡魔的誘惑,
無論惡魔是單或眾。
上帝是我之主,
拯救我免於敵人的詛咒,
無論敵人是近或遠。

在我與惡魔之間的諸力量,請聽我召喚。
讓我們共同
對抗假先知的惡毒魔咒,
對抗異教徒的黑邪律法,
對抗外道人士的異端邪說,
對抗偶像崇拜者的狡詐騙術,
對抗巫術法師的法術詛咒。
請助我擊敗
一切腐化人類肉體與靈魂的邪見,
一切加害於我身心的殘酷力量。

今日,基督庇護我,
使我免於毒害與猛火,
使我免於淹溺與迫害,
終有一天,我將獲得無盡的報償。

基督與我同在,或在前,或在後。
基督與我同體,或在下,或在上。
基督在我身旁,或在左,或在右。
行住坐臥之時,皆不須臾離也。
思我者,基督必存其心。
談我者,基督必存其口。
見我者,基督必存其目。
聞我者,基督必存其耳。

今日
我奮袂而起。
我向聖三位一體,我們的上帝祈求,
我的心
憑藉著上帝的大能,
憑藉著堅定的信仰,
憑藉著深刻的告解,
向那唯一的造物主。

Joseph Magnus Frangipani: 

The Impossibility of Aloneness – When Christ Found Me in the Himalayas

I’m an Orthodox Christian living in Homer, Alaska and experienced Jesus Christ in the Himalayas, in India.

I listen to the heartbeat of rain outside…

Cold, Alaskan fog blowing in off the bay, emerald hills now that autumn is here and summer chased away into the mountains. But a milky white fog spreads over the bay like a silken ghost. I used to visit Trappist monasteries, back when I was Catholic, at the beginning of high school, and searching for a relationship of love. I read plenty of philosophy then to know that knowing isn’t enough, that having a realization in the mind is entirely different from experiencing a revelation of the heart.

I spent two birthdays in the Himalayas…

Traveling along gravel roads that drop deep into icy gulches where the Ganges river rages below not yet packed with the filth and mud and newspapers of villages, not yet carrying remainders of Indians in her current, I found Christ found me. It’s a difficult and strangely compelling atmosphere to confront oneself, – – India, – – sandwiched with Continue reading “Joseph Magnus Frangipani, Alaska, USA: The Impossibility of Aloneness – When Christ Found Me in the Himalayas”
