- Optina Pustyn Monastery, Russia (1) Optina Pustyn, officially Svyato-Vvedenskaya Optinakaya Pustyn, is a male monastery near Kozelsk which was the most important spiritual center of the Church of Russia in the nine***th century. The monastery was famous for the monastic renewal movement in Russia based on the hesychastic tradition that had been largely lost in the Russian monastic experience in the eigh***th century. It is not clear when the hermitage was established. Optina as a monastery had existed since at least the six***th century. The monastery is located about 80 miles from Moscow. It had fallen in disrepair in the eigh***th century under the anti-monastic policies of Peter I and Catherine II. In 1790, Metr. Platon of Moscow undertook the restoration of the monastery. During the late eigh***th century monasticism in Russia enjoyed a revival, significantly influenced by the works and spirituality of the Elder Schema-monk Paisius Velichkovsky, which was spread by his many monastic disciples. At Optina his works found a 'headquarters' from which his spirituality expressed in the hesychastic tradition spread throughout Russia. A visible manifestation this spirituality at Optina was conveyed by the lineage of divinely enlightened spiritual fathers, startsy, plural of starets, who served as spiritual guides for the many people who came to the monastery for holy counsel during the nine***th century. In addition to counseling, the monastery, through the initiative of Elder Macarius, began publishing ...

- Sanahin monastery (Arménie/Armenia) Sanahin is a village in the Northern Lorri province of Armenia, now considered part of the city of Alaverdi (the cable car that connects it with the Alaverdi centre is supposed to have the steepest climb in the whole former USSR). The village is notable for its monastery complex, founded in the 10th century and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with monasteries in Haghpat. The name Sanahin literally translates from Armenian as "this one is older than that one", presumably representing a claim to having an older monastery than the neighbouring Haghpat. The two villages and their monasteries are similar in many ways, and lie in plain view of each other on a dissected plateau formation, separated by a deep "crack" formed by a small river flowing into the Debed river. As with Haghpat, Sanahin is frequented by an increasing number of tourists, due to its recent inclusion on the itineraries of numerous Armenian tour agencies, the beauty of its monastery complex matching that of Haghpat's. The complex belongs to the Armenian Apostolic Church with numerous khachkars (stones with elaborate engravings representing a cross) and bishop gravesites scattered throughout it. Sanahin was also the birthplace of the two well-known Mikoyan brothers. Artem Mikoyan was a well known airplane constructor, and one of the "fathers" of MiG. Anastas Mikoyan was the politician with the longest career of any member of the Soviet politburo. He was involved in negotiating the Molotov ...

Entry from: Gyumri, Armenia Entry Title: "Exploring Gyumri and trying to find monasteries" Entry: "So I stayed two night in a home accommodation in Yerevan. The apartment was in a high floor in a huge soviet style run-down apartment block. I did get my own room, there was breakfast included and the familiy was very nice, so it was good place to stay - although two nights were enough as there was basically no shower. It was time to leave Yerevan behind and I took a morning train from the majestetic Yerevan Station to Gyumri, the second largest city in Armenia about 120km north from Yerevan. Gyumri has a population of about 160 000, so the difference between the first and second city of the country is huge. Gyumri is one of the oldest towns in Yerevan, inhabited since 5th century BC by some estimations. It has been inhabited by dirrenrent nations and had many names, such as Alexandropol before soviet era and Leninakan during the soviet era. Historically it was Gyumri and that it is again. For an ancient city, theres really nothing ancient in the city, but a tremendous number of 18th & 19th century buildings. It is a great place to see colonial and russian history, some more recent history than the ancient monasteries.

In this video Jim and Paige visit Gandan Monastery in Mongolia. Copyright Jim Rogers - provided as a special contribution to The Fenton Report. The Gandantegchinlen Monastery (short name Gandan), is a Tibetan-style monastery in the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar that has been restored and revitalized since 1990. The Tibetan name translates to the "Great Place of Complete Joy." It currently has over 150 monks in residence. It features a 26.5-meter-high statue of Migjid Janraisig, a Buddhist bodhisattva also known as Avalokitesvara. It came under state protection in 1994. The monastery was established in 1835 by the Fifth Jebtsundamba, then Mongolia's highest reincarnated lama. It became the principal center of Buddhist learning in Mongolia. In the 1930s, the Communist government of Mongolia, under the leadership of Khorloogiin Choibalsan and under the influence of Joseph Stalin, destroyed all but a few monasteries and killed more than 10.000 lamas. Gandantegchinlen Khiid monastery, having escaped this mass destruction, was closed in 1938, but then reopened in 1944 and allowed to continue as the only functioning Buddhist monastery, under a skeleton staff, as a token homage to traditional Mongolian culture and religion. With the end of communism in Mongolia in 1990, restrictions on worship were lifted. See ...
- Mardin (Saffron monastery) Mardin (Kurdish: Mêrdîn) is a city in southeastern Turkey. The capital of Mardin Province is known for its Arab-style architecture, and for its strategic location on a rocky mountain overlooking the plains of northern Syria. Mardin has a very mixed population, Turks, Arabs and Kurds all represent large groups. Mardin is an Aramaic word and means "fortresses". The earliest settlers in Mardin were Assyrian Christians, arriving in the 3rd century AD; in fact, the old Assyro-Babylonian religion existed in Mardin until the 18th century. Most Syriac Orthodox churches and monasteries in the city, which are still active today, date from the 5th century AD, such as the Deyrülzafarân Monastery shown in the video. Mor Hananyo Monastery is an important Syriac Orthodox monastery near the city of Mardin, which is better known by its nickname, the 'Saffron Monastery'. This name is derived from the warm colour of its stone. The monastery acquired its present, official name from Saint Hananyo (the Syriac equivalent of Ananias, which is its Greek form), who was Metropolitan of Kfartuta from 793 to 800. Saint Hananyo renovated the monastery 793. Founded in 493 AD, the monastery was formerly the seat of the patriarch of the Syriac Orthodox Church from 1160 until 1932 where it relocated to Damascus.

Entry from: Garni Temple and Geghard Monastery, Armenia Entry Title: "Around Yerevan, part III: Elections, Monastery" Entry: "Everywhere I went, I poked around monasteries and churches looking for centuries-old khatchkars outside and lighting candles inside. Most churches and khatchkars in Armenia, it seems, date from between the seventh and four***th centuries, after the Arabs were expelled and before Tamerlane pillaged the lands, although a few are older and many are more recent, or at least more-recently redesigned, restored, or repainted. Many of them are also located in fittingly remote or hard-to-reach places, which is another reason why the highlands of Armenia have probably remained Christian, while surrounded by Muslims. On one poke-around, I visited Garni Temple and Gegard Monastery, located 10 kilometers from one another and close to town, thus making a good day trip. Garni Temple was an ancient Roman Sun Temple, dedicated to Helios. Now fully reconstructed, about half the stones are newly-carved, though much less intricate, to hold the building in place and replace the missing pieces. Ten kilometers further was Geg********astery. As time was short and there was no marshrukas to the monastery, hidden in a canyon in the basaltic Geghama Range, I took a taxi from Garni, with a friendly local ...

- The Serenity At Amaravati Buddhist Monastery In Hemel Hempstead Amaravati Buddhist Monastery Amaravati Buddhist Monastery is a monastery in the Thai Forest Tradition of the Theravada lineage of Buddhism. Amaravati is a centre of teaching and practice. It is located in Great Gaddesden, in the Chiltern Hills, near Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England. Amaravati means "Deathless Realm" in Pāli, the scriptural language of the ancient Buddhist Pali Canon. The temple was founded by the disciples of the noted Thai meditation master, Luang Por Chah (1918-1992). Its current abbot is Ajahn Sumedho. In addition to the monks' and nuns' residences, there are accommodations for long-term lay residents and shorter-term lay guests. Amaravati has a retreat centre, where meditation retreats of varying lengths are held for lay people. Both the monastery and the retreat centre are run on dana (free-will donations). Amaravati was created in 1984 when the English Sangha Trust purchased a residential school (previously an army base) from Buckinghamshire County Council. It is linked to Cittaviveka (Chithurst Buddhist Monastery) in West Sus***, and to monasteries in Devon, Northumberland, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Switzerland, North America and Thailand. Amaravati officially opened in 1985. In the late 1990s, a temple building was constructed.

- St.Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery, Florence, Arizona In the summer of 1995 six monks arrived in the southern Arizona desert to establish St. Anthony's Monastery, carrying with them the sacred, millenial heritage of the Holy Mountain, Athos. Since early Christian history, this steep and rocky peninsula in northern Greece proved to be a haven for ancient Egyptian, Cappadocian, and Constantinopolitan monastics. Thus, it enjoyed a direct link with the greatest monastic establishments of ancient Christianity, preserving intact the wisdom of the holy fathers and the sacred tradition of the ancient Church. Today, the Holy Mountain consists of 20 independent monasteries, and numerous sketes and hermitages, housing Orthodox Christian monks from all over the world. Elder Ephraim, a disciple of Elder Joseph the Hesychast, having restored and repopulated four Mt. Athos monasteries and having established several men's and women's monastic communities throughout Greece and North America, transferred six Athonite monks to the Sonoran Desert to start a new monastery. Upon their arrival the fathers began with the necessary construction work, building first the main church, living quarters for the monks, the dining hall, and guest facilities. A vegetable garden, a small vineyard, citrus orchards, and an olive grove dot the landscape. An elaborate system of gardens, pathways, and gazebos with Spanish fountains truly render the monastery and its extensive grounds an oasis in the desert. The monastery is dedicated to St. Anthony the Great, the ...

- Bachkovo Monastery The Bachkovo Monastery or Petritsoni Monastery in Bulgaria is an important monument of Christian architecture and one of the largest and oldest Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Europe. It is located on the right bank of the Chepelare River, 189 km from Sofia and 10 km south of Asenovgrad, and is directly subordinate to the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The monastery is known and appreciated for the unique combination of Byzantine, Georgian and Bulgarian culture, united by the common faith. The monastery was founded by Prince Gregorios Pakourianos or Grigol Bakurianis-dze, prominent Georgian statesman, military commander in Byzantine service, in 1083. During the time of the Second Bulgarian Empire, Bachkovo Monastery was patronized by Tsar Ivan Alexander, which is evidenced by an image of him on the archs of the ossuary's narthex. Since the 11th century, a school was housed in the monastery. It is believed that the founder of Tarnovo Literary School and last patriarch of the mediaeval Bulgarian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Euthymius, was exiled by the Turks and died in the monastery in the early 15th century. Although the monastery survived the first waves of Turkish invasion in Bulgarian lands, it was later looted and destroyed, but restored near the end of the 15th century. The refectory, whose mural paintings by an anonymous author bear a significant artistic value, was reconstructed in 1601 and the Church of Virgin Mary, still preserved today, was finished ...

- The Tana lake monasteries (Ethiopia) Lake Tana sometimes called "Dembiya" after the region to the north of the lake) is the source of the Blue Nile and is the largest lake in Ethiopia. Located in Amhara Region in the north-western Ethiopian highlands, according to the Statistical Abstract of Ethiopia for 1967/68, the lake is approximately 84 kilometers long and 66 kilometers wide, with a maximum depth of 15 meters, and an elevation of 1840 meters. Lake Tana is fed by the Lesser Abay, Reb and Gumara Rivers and its surface area ranges from 3000 to 3500 km² depending on season and rainfall. The lake level has been regulated since the construction of the control weir where the lake discharges into the Blue Nile, which regulates the flow to the Tis Abbai falls and hydro-power station. The lake has a number of islands, whose numbers vary depending on the level of the lake; it has fallen about 6 feet (1.8 m) in the last 400 years. According to Manoel de Almeida (who was a Portuguese missionary in the early 17th century), there were 21 islands, seven to eight of which had monasteries on them "formerly large, but now much diminished." When James Bruce visited the area in the later 18th century, he noted that the locals counted 45 inhabited islands, but stated he believed that "the number may be about eleven." A more modern geographer named 37 islands, of which he believed 19 have or had monasteries or churches on them. Remains of ancient Ethiopian emperors and treasures of the Ethiopian Church are kept in the ...

- Simonopetra Monastery Monks - Polyeleos, Psalm 135 In recent years, the Simonopetra Monastery has become world-renowned for its high-quality recordings of traditional Byzantine chant in Greek and has a growing discography. Simonopetra Monastery or Simonos Petra (Greek: Σιμωνόπετρα or Σίμωνος Πέτρα) is one of the many monasteries that occupy the peninsula commonly called Mount Athos. It is dedicated to the Nativity of Christ. It is ranked thir***th in the hierarchical order of the Mount Athos monasteries located on the peninsula. While the origins of a monastery founded by Blessed Simon the Myrrh-flowing that may have been the beginnings of the existing monastery are clouded in the mists of time, the recorded establishment of the present monastery around 1368 is credited to the Serbian prince Ioannis (Joan, Jovan) Uglješa. The monastery has through the years experienced changing fortunes as it has weathered various political and leadership issues and natural disasters.

Easter hyms Churches & monasteries of Jerusalem 1- The Monastery of the Cross in Jerusalem, built at the epoch of Constantine the great or at the epoch of Justinian and Theodora and was rased to the ground by Persians, it was rebuilt at the 11th century by Georgians (under the patronage of Queen Tamar of Georgia), is situated in the Valley of the Cross (Georgian: ჯვრის მონასტერი, Hebrew: עמק המצלבה Emeq HaMatzlevah) ( 31°46'20.27"N, 35°12'30.96"E, 783m) overlooked by the Israel Museum and the Knesset. 2- Gethsemane (from the Hebrew "Gat Shemanim", which means "oil press", Γεθσημανι ) was the garden where, according to the New Testament and Christian traditions, Jesus and his disciples retreated to pray after the Last Supper, the night before he was crucified (see Atonement). According to Luke 22:43--44, Jesus' anguish in Gethsemane was so deep that "his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." Gethsemane was also where Christ was betrayed by the disciple Judas Iscariot. Furthermore Catholic and Orthodox tradition holds that Gethsemane is the place where the Apostles buried the Blessed Virgin Mary, after her dormition. 3- Mary's Tomb is a tomb located in the Kidron Valley, on the foothills of Mount of Olives, near the Church of All Nations and Gethsemane garden, originally just outside Jerusalem.

- Monasteries of Meteora Monk possible ALIEN GREY - UFO Sightings frequent in this Religious Holy Land Monasteries of Meteora Greece were built by hermit Monks hundreds of years ago.

- Shar Gaden Monastery, Mundgod - Following the footsteps of Dorje Shugden - Part 1 Shar Gaden Monastery With 600 Tulkus, Geshes, Masters and monks keeping the lineage alive, Shar Gaden is located in Mundgod South India. It is next to Gaden Monastery and 25 minutes away from Drepung. We can access this great institute via Bombay or Bangalore. From Bombay/Bangalore you may take train or Bus which is 8-10 hours to the nearest city of Hubli. From Hubli it is one hour away by taxi. Since His Holiness the Dalai Lama has said that all Dorje Shugden practitioners must separate from the Monasteries and the general populace of non-Dorje Shugden practitioners in all ways, this monastery was formed. All Tibetans who do not practice Dorje Shugden may not have any association with those that do was the strict decree. As a result many tulkus, geshes, senior practitioners and monks had no choice but to sadly leave their respective monasteries out of respect for His Holiness Dalai Lama's decree. They gathered and joined to have Shar Gaden Monastery. Shar Gaden Monastery was not formed to counter or oppose His Holiness the Dalai Lama in anyway, but to have the freedom to practice as they have been from the instructions of their root gurus. HH Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche's ladrang has also joined Shar Gaden leaving Gaden Shartse Monastery, where his line of incarnations have been for hundreds of years. Domo Geshe Rinpoche also has joined. This video shows Shar Gaden Monastery today alive with practice, debates, pujas, t***as, and teachings. They ...

ORTHODOXY is the only true religion! All the other so-called "christian churches" changed very very many things in Christianity.. Catholicism changes and ajusts doga every day(a metaphore, but you got the idea). Orthodoxy has remain pure and unchanged since the 7 ecumenical councils at the dawn of Christianity.

They are anathematised, because they changed the Faith.
