Pad-ma dKar-po's Amitayus Tradition opens fresh ground by applying phenomenological research methods to discern transformative aspects of contemplative experience using emic reports elicited directly from contemporary practitioners from the Drukpa tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. After a thorough historical introduction and analytical presentation of the practice text Tshe dpag med zhi ba lha mangs kyi cho ga 'chi med 'dod pa'i re skong nag 'gros su bkod pa bzhugs so (Ritual of the abundant peaceful deities of Amitayus satisfying the wishes of those desiring immortality), this work portrays direct experiences of performing Kun-mkyen Pad-ma dKar-po's 16th c. ritual in a practice tradition attributed to the 12th c. female Indian teacher Siddharajñi. Preliminary spiritual care and contemplative factor models are presented along with a detailed theoretical process analysis of positive psychospiritual development through the contemplative action of the communally-enacted mandala ritual practice.

DHL Receiver’s Guide to Duties and Taxes, Goods Purchased Online for Personal Use
You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something purchased online because:

Duties and taxes are most typically not included in the price of the goods you purchase online, and might not be included in the overall shipping costs you pay to the online retailer.
When purchasing goods online, some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in, therefore are subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders.
When goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate.
To ensure the DHL courier can deliver your goods in shortest possible time after entering your country or customs union, DHL pays the customs authority on your behalf for any duties and taxes that are due on the goods.
Once the duties and taxes are fully repaid to DHL the goods will be delivered to you What is payable, if anything, depends on where the goods are sent from, the type of goods, their transactional value and the weight of the package
