Strengthening my connections
A few months back I received an Instagram DM from Ugen, an invite to the inauguration of his own salon in Majnu Ka Tilla, majorly a Tibetan refugee settlement in North Delhi since the 1960s when the His Holiness Dalai Lama left Tibet with a lot of Tibetan refugees.
Since then, I wanted to congratulate him personally at his own salon and spend some time in Majnu ka Tilla.
This time in Delhi, meeting friends and family became an agenda. On the 19th night, it just stumbled upon me the promise I had made to myself to visit Majnu ka Tilla as Tibetan culture, Buddhism has always fascinated me. The self immolation videos of young Tibetans burning themselves on the roads in Tibet made me read a lot about HH Dalai Lama’s exile and China’s torturous attitude. Somehow, I feel connected so I sent a text to Ugen and the next day noon I boarded the metro from GK Enclave to Vidhan Sabha to get a haircut from Ugen, an artist who creates magic. He gives the right look keeping in mind the practical factors like weather conditions.
I got in touch with Ugen a couple of years back during his tenure in F Salon GK 2 Delhi as the main stylist and hair dresser.
So, if you’re travelling to Delhi or based in Delhi and looking for a change or wish to experiment with your hair take out some time to pamper yourself @yewong.salon The perks are that you get to shop curios, bags, clothes, eat Tibetan, Japanese, Korean food meet travellers, spend time in the monastery or take a room in the guest houses. This place is ideal for people travelling to Himachal as all the buses pass from this area.
Ugen is a wonderful friend in Delhi, helped me shop and ordered some amazingly yummy laping, a Tibetan savoury easily found in this area for me.
I’ll be back soon. 
Tip- Majnu ka Tilla is easily approachable via Metro. The nearest metro station is Vidhan Sabha. Take a shared e rickshaw for rupees 10 just outside the station to save time and money. 
Follow him to see his work @yewong.salon

  • Am heutigen „Tag der Muttersprache“ sind wir in Gedanken bei Tashi Wangchuk und den vielen anderen Menschen in Tibet, die von den chinesischen Behörden verfolgt werden, weil sie sich für die Bewahrung der tibetischen Sprache einsetzen.

  • Le lotus: Symbole de la pureté absolue et de l’Eveil, emblème de l’élévation spirituelle, le lotus a la particularité de prendre racine dans la vase ou la boue, sa tige baignant dans l’eau tandis que sa fleur s’épanouit majestueusement sur l’eau. Le lotus représente l’élévation de l’âme, d’abord purement matérialiste au travers de ses racines, puis goûtant l’expérience de l’eau au travers de sa tige, pour enfin parvenir à l’illumination et l’éveil au travers de sa fleur.
Les bouddhistes tibétains voient au travers du Lotus la véritable nature des Etres, la tige étant le samsara (cycles des vies et morts), la fleur symbolisant la paix et la sérénité.

  • ❓❓❓Why Does the Buddha Have an Acorn Head?❓❓❓
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯ 📚He doesn't always have an acorn head, but yes, sometimes his head resembles an acorn. There's a legend that the individual knobs are snails that voluntarily covered the Buddha's head, either to keep it warm or cool it off. But that's not the real answer.
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯ 📚The first images of the Buddha were created by artists of Gandhara, an ancient Buddhist kingdom located in what is now Afghanistan and Pakistan. These artists were influenced by Persian, Greek and Roman art, and they gave the Buddha curly hair tied into a topknot. This hairdo apparently was considered stylish at the time.
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯ 📚Eventually, as Buddhist art forms moved into China and elsewhere in East Asia, the curls became stylized knobs or snail shells, and the topknot became a bump, representing all the wisdom in his head.
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯ 📚Oh, and his earlobes are long because he used to wear heavy gold earrings, back when he was a prince.

  • #buddhists believe that a #statue only truly comes to #life when it is consecrated by a #lama through an appropriate #ritual. During this ceremony, the statue is filled with many #offerings, #relics, and rolled #mantras, which are then sealed inside the statue, imbuing it with a special power to grant blessings to those who pray to it.
