Sky burial is a ritual that has great religious meaning. Tibetans are encouraged to witness this ritual to confront the impermanence of life. They believe that the body is nothing more than an empty vessel and the soul or spirit of the deceased exits the body to be reincarnated into another circle of life. It is believed that vultures are Dakinis, their equivalent of angels. The corpse is offered up to the Dakinis and they take the souls to the next level of reincarnation. This donation of human flesh is considered virtuous, because it saves the lives of smaller animals that vultures might otherwise catch for food. Sakyamuni, one of the Buddhas, demonstrated this virtue by feeding his own flesh to a hawk to save a pigeon. In Tibet, this ritual is just as common as funeral burials in Western countries.

this is some metal fucking brutal shit






Osamu Tezuka as a meme? That’s right, Internet. This is Osamu Tezuka.

You can call this meme douche-bag artist-multimillionaire, too.

WARNING: Extremely demotivating.

PS: In reality, Osamu Tezuka was extraordinarily kind.

And this is why I greatly respect and admire him.

Yeah dude I am not demotivated, I’m in awe.


Never liked any of his manga, but I have mad respect for the man.
