This frame is from Hazrat Syed Burhanuddin Qutub-ul-Alam, the father of Shah e Alam, was the grandson of the celebrated Hazrat Syedna Syed Jalaluddin Hussaini Bukhari of Uch, also known as Makhdoom Jahaniyan Jahangasht. Attracted to the court of Ahmad Shah I, he settled at Vatva and died there in 1452. He founded the Bukhariya sect of Gujarat. The nobles of the courts of Ahmed Shah, Sultan Qutubuddin Ahmad Shah II raised a small shrine first. Afterwards a mosque, a tomb to one of his sons, a large many-sided pond, and a vast mausoleum was built Mahmud Begada. The mosque and son's tomb are in the flat Hindu style without arches or minarets. But in the large mausoleum, with a great gain in size, the arch takes the place of the beam, and the dome is raised high in air by a second tier of arches. The arch, uniformly used with one consistent design, has much beauty and propriety. The tomb is of the most elaborate workmanship surmounted by a richly inlaid canopy. But tho building is incomplete, it wants the outer aisles and has no stone trellis work in its windows.
Welcome back to Germany! It’s been a while! 🇩🇪 🏰
My beloved home country is home to countless castles and many of them have made their way onto this platform, but have you ever seen this one? Comment below if you know the name! ✌🏻
In life, everyone juggles about 5 balls. Some more, some less, some bigger, some smaller but in general everyone is constantly balancing 5 things. In my mind these are spirituality, health, career, family, and friends and you are constantly trying to keep all these things in the air. -
But as you know, sometimes things slip and even fall. If you drop your career, it’s rubber and can bounce back. If you drop any of the other 4 balls, they’re glass and shatter and cause you to get flustered and potentially drop more balls. -
The point is that sometimes we get so focused in on creating a living that we forget to create a life. Especially people like me that are super goal oriented, we become obsessed with accomplishing something just for the sake of accomplishing it while sometimes neglecting other things or people that need our attention. -
Focus is great and has a place and time, but balance is key. I find it best when I have intense periods of focus with no distraction followed by more chill downtime. Keep the balance. -
