    My avatar is an Easter picture of the Holy Sepulchre in the church of the Ressurection Of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. Here is the story of this picture.

    Great Miracle on Easter – the Holy Fire in Jerusalem

    This ceremony takes place in the church of the Resurrection of Christ in Jerusalem in such a way that bewilders the soul of the Christians.

    ON EASTER SATURDAY, at noon, the Patriarch, or any other Archbishop, enters the Holy Sepulchre in the church of Resurrection, recites special prayers and remains waiting. Sometimes the waiting is long, sometimes short. The crowd, in the darkened church, repeats continually with a loud voice: “Lord, have mercy” (Kyrie eleison). At a certain moment the Holy Fire flashes from the depth of the Holy Sepulchre in a supernatural way, miraculously, and lights up the little lamp of olive oil put on the edge of it. The Patriarch (or the Archbishop), after having read some prayers, lights up the two clusters of 33 candles he is holding, and begins to distribute the Holy Fire to the multitude of pilgrims, who receive it with great emotion, accompanied with the pealing of bells, acclamations, and an unbridled enthusiasm.

    The Holy Fire is not only distributed by the Archbishop, but operates also by itself. It emits from the Holy Sepulchre having a gleam of a hue completely different from that of natural Fire. It sparkles, it flashes like lightning, it flies like a dove around the tabernacle of the Holy Sepulchre, and lights up the unlit lamps of olive oil hanging in front of it. It whirls from one side of the church to the other. It enters to some of the chapels inside the church, as for instance the chapel of the Calvery (at a higher level than the Holy Sepulchre) and lights up the little lamps. It lights up also the candles of certain pilgrims. In fact there are some very pious pilgrims who, every time they attended this ceremony, noticed that their candles lit up on the own accord!

    This divine light also presents some peculiarities: As soon as it appears it has a bluish hue and does not burn. At the first moments of its appearance, if it touches the face, or the mouth, or the hands, it does not burn. This is proof of its divine and supernatural origin. We must also take into consideration that the Holy Fire appears only by the invocation of this church’s Archbishop. Each time that heterodox bishops tried to obtain it, they failed.

    Once the Armenians paid the Turks, who then occupied the Holy Land, in order to obtain permission for their Patriarch to enter the Holy Sepulchre, This church’s Patriarch was standing sorrowfully with his flock at the exit of the church, near the left column, when the Holy Fire split this column vertically and flashed near the church’s Patriarch.

    A Moslem Muezin, called Tounom, who saw the miraculous event from an adjacent mosque, abandoned immediately the Moslem religion and became an Orthodox Christian. This event took place in 1549 under Sultan Mourad IV, when the Patriarch of Jerusalem was Sophrony II. (The mentioned split column still exists. It goes back to the XII c. The pilgrims embrace it at the “place of the split” as the enter the church).

    The appearance of the Holy Fire is an event which occurs every year in front of thousands of visual witnesses. Nobody can deny it. On the contrary, this miracle can reinforce those who have lack of faith.

    There are some very touching recent cases of some Jews, who believed in Christ after having seen the Holy Fire, and who said to their compatriots: “Why are you still waiting for the Messiah? The Messiah came indeed.”

    Visually, the lion male is highly distinctive and is easily recognized by its mane. The head of the male lion is one of the most widely recognized animal symbols in human culture. It has been depicted extensively in literature, in sculptures, in paintings, on national flags, and in contemporary films and literature.

    As to why I chose it, has to do wiht a different scenario of M7’s hunting expedition. He didn’t say what animals he hunted, he just said he did and no one is going to chase him from the meat. Well, he doesn’t know it, but he his trap caught him a lion, the lion is free and is undercover waiting for him to come and for his kill. Here’s some info about this animal stalking him for provoking it;

    Lion (Panthera leo) is one of four big cats in the genus Panthera .The closest relatives are the tiger, the jaguar, and the leopard.
    The exceptionally large lion males exceeding 250 kg in weight, is the second-heaviest living cat after the tiger. It is also the tallest (at the shoulder) of the felines. With powerful legs, a strong jaw, and 8 cm (3.1 in) long canine teeth, the lion can bring down and kill large prey.

    Lions overcome their weaknesses and become really powerful animals by usually living and hunting in coordinated groups and stalking their chosen prey. They display a planning which shows they are smart animals. Adult lions have no natural predators, the majority die from humans (who God put above them) or other lions (internal affairs).

    My motorbike is the love of my carefree life. Sometimes I live to ride and ride to live. All the time I love God and Buganda and mum and Dad. And then my motorbike.

    i changed my avatar to a Buganda’s heritage place.

    Sezibwa falls

    In the middle of the district runs river Sezibwa, believed by Buganda legend to have been born by one ‘Nakangu Tibatesa’ the wife to Mr. ‘Nsubuga Sebwaato’ in Kawuna, Ngongwe sub county around the time of the Christian biblical prophet Isaiah.

    The river flows into lake Kyoga. The nature of its birth makes the river a cultural symbol of great importance to Buganda’s heritage.
    A major tourist and cultural site along the river is the Sezibwa waterfalls situated 2.5 km off Kampala-Jinja highway at Kayanja, Kawolo sub county, 7 miles from Mukono town. The falls offer beautiful scenery for tourists and those in love of nature. Next to the falls is a spacious ground for campers and holidaymakers. The site also has a natural forest, which has forest walks ensuring the viewing of birds for bird watchers. It is believed that over 100 bird species and some wild animals including rare species of monkeys could be found in this place alone.

    As part of the Sezibwa attractions, is a cave commonly known by cultural worshipers as ’embuga ya Jajja Musoke’ (translated, the home of grand father ‘Musoke’), which is inhabited by one ‘Nalongo’, a python (snake) the mother of twins.

    The ‘Nalongo’ or python is what is known as ‘Jajja Musoke’.
    Cultural worshippers and people seeking blessing and healing visit the cave to consult with the ‘jajja’ on all sorts of matters.
    The worshippers are also blessed by one ‘Jajja Omukongozi’, a traditional healer who lacks hair on his head, a trait believed to have been born with since his childhood. On this very site is a tree, one ‘Nkalati ‘, which is said to have been planted by King Mwanga in 1889. Kabaka Mwanga and other kings are said to have held meetings with subjects and county chiefs at the site. Today the site is preserved as Buganda’s heritage. The money collected from the visitors is used to support the restoration of the place to its original setting

    Sezibwa falls is traditionally derived from the vernacular word “sezibibwa kkubo” meaning “no obstacle can stop me from moving on. The site located in Uganda about 20 miles along Jinja Road from Kampala; is a Buganda Heritage site, with an out span of sharp edged rocks and a magnificent sound of soothing waters flowing down the steep ridged stones.

    The site attracts many who seek blessings due to cultural beliefs that the river was born of a woman. It’s alleged that the 2 rivers named Sezibwa and its brother Bwanda were given birth to by a woman on her way to Kavuma Bukunja when she experienced labour pains. Nakkungu Tebatuusa whose husband was called Nsubuga Sebwato gave birth to Twins in form of water, where Sezibwa flowed west, passing many obstacles and deriving its name, while Bwanda flowed towards Nyenga in Eastern Uganda to the mothers’ homeland.

    Casually dressed men are found at the gate, and on a busy day, there are over 100 visitors including tourists, researchers, students and people seeking for peace and miracles.
    Many people come to the place for miracles as they believe the site has supernatural powers. The presence of “Mbuga ya musoke”, a cowry shrine believed to be a home of a python called Nalongo; Eggshells, Calabashes, backcloth, short spears and a coffee berry basket at the entrance of the shrine signifies the cultural, traditional and spiritual beliefs on the site.

    The beautiful green vegetation like Bamboo and Erithina, the 7 meters high waterfalls, and the harmony of Bird songs above the trees creates beautiful scenery for relaxation and enjoyment. Rock climbing and bird watching are main activities at the site, and Geologists visit the site in numbers. Wildlife includes the Bush Monkeys, red tailed monkeys and many other primates and Birds.

    The dark waters rise up to 90 feet during the rainy season, with fascinating sounds from the pouring waters, holding the secret not known to many, unique and rich traditions, acknowledged only by those who love culture and serene.
