Arrow Mount Ontake

Also referred to as Mount Kiso Ontake , is the second highest volcano in Japan at 3,067 m (10,062 ft).. It should not be confused with Mount Mitake, a mountain in Tokyo written with the same kanji characters, nor with various other Japanese mountains also known by the name Ontake..Mt. Ontake is located around 100 km (62 mi) northeast of Nagoya, at the borders of Kiso and Ōtaki, Nagano Prefecture, and Gero, Gifu Prefecture..The volcano has 5 crater lakes, with Ni no Ike (二ノ池) at 2,905 m (9,531 ft) being the highest mountain lake in Japan..Thought to be inactive until 1979, Ontake underwent a series of eruptions over the following year..On Saturday, 27 September 2014 at around 11:53 AM Japan Standard Time, the Volcano erupted again...

Mount Ontake volcano erupts in Japan

5 hours ago..

Mount Ontake in Japan erupted on Saturday, sending a large plume of ash into the sky..

Local authorities have warned climbers to avoid the area.

Japan's meteorological agency raised the alert level to three on a scale of 1 to 5..

It has warned that debris from the volcano could fall up to 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) away..

Before speaking about Noble Green Tara, Jets√ľn Drolma in Tibetan, I want to ask you to give rise to the mind of awakening, Bodhicitta, and to recall that you are receiving these instructions for your own benefit as well as for the benefit and welfare of all living beings..Her Tibetan name is Drolma, often translated as “She who Liberates.” Drol means “knot” and ma is the particle for the feminine gender, so her name denotes that she helps beings in exceptional ways to untie the knot of any hindrances and difficulties that they encounter and experience..Everyone experiences problems and suffers in one way or another. So it is important to check and know which problems and obstacles are strongest in ones life. There are so many problems people have - outer, inner, and secret. Outer obstacles are those caused by the elements, e.g., through floods, fires, storms, and earthquakes that harm and kill many living beings. Inner obstacles are those brought on by blockages in ones channels that disrupt and impede the harmonious energy-flow in ones body, causing imbalances that lead to sicknesses. Secret obstacles are unwholesome thoughts. Everyone is subject to the 3 kinds of obstacles, although outer hindrances are not experienced to the same extent by everyone... firing power inside my crater is enough to annihilate a small army.. You can watch it all on TV.. It's the last program you're likely to see...
