(Sanskrit and Pali; traditional Chinese: 道場; pinyin: dàochǎng) a term used in Buddhism meaning the “position of awakening.” According to Haribhadra, it is “a place used as a seat, where the essence of enlightenment is present”, i.e. “seat of wisdom”. Although spelled similarly, a bodhimaṇḍa is not synonymous with a bodhimaṇḍala, which is a “circle of enlightenment.”
Etymology: Sanskrit – बोधिमण्ड.
Slavic mythology: (plural: rusalki or rusalky) a female ghost, water nymph, succubus, or mermaid-like demon that dwelt in a waterway. According to most traditions, the rusalki were fish-women, who lived at the bottom of rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the bank and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerise them, then lead them away to the river floor to their death.
- Most dreams last anywhere from five to twenty minutes.
- People don’t only dream in black and white, as was once believed.
- Even though they may not remember them, everyone dreams several times a night. In fact, during a typical lifetime, we spend about six years dreaming.
- People who have been blind from birth have dreams that are formed from their other senses (e.g., touch, smell, sound).
- When people are snoring, they’re not dreaming.
- Elephants (and some other animals) sleep standing up during non-REM sleep, but lie down for REM sleep.
