Gruesome Photos of the recent Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar

Heavy rains head toward cyclone-devastated Myanmar

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Heavy rains and another potentially powerful storm headed toward Myanmar's cyclone-devastated delta on Wednesday. The U.N. warned that inadequate relief efforts could lead to a second wave of deaths among the estimated 2 million survivors. The International Red Cross said in a new estimate that the death toll already may be between 68,833 and 127,990......

At times, words do little to jolt our senses. We read words and we forget words. However, with pictures, they sometimes stay in our minds for a long long time. The only reason why I wanted to share this photos, albeit gruesome is just to remind us that life is fragile. We will surely and certainly die one day, only the when, where and how is unknown. These words have been spoken so many times by my Guru, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, but not often enough as many of us still continue to channel our efforts on many things which are unimportant and trival to us in our daily lives thinking that we'll live forever and loose sight of the larger things.

These pictures were sent to me this morning and some of them are indeed are rather offensive. However, please view them (if you are up to it) with compassion and understanding on the fragility of life, if nothing else. If you do not want to view them, there is enough time to close this page before the first picture even appears.

yipwt & kljs : mmm.. must check on that. got that mail from a very close friend and i thot that cyclone involved rain and high winds and yangon is very near water, it might have been true pictures. thanks for taking note of that.

dumpling & kljs: oh yes..there is more and more of these natural disasters happening... and yesterday, there were also tremors in Klang Valley..this is getting scary :(... perhaps the end is nearer .. truly

raising mercury : actually was feeling a little torn when deciding to post this up.. but a picture is worth a million words.

I can't bear to see the sight of babies or toddlers' dead bodies. Tugs at the heartstrings, really.
