Wow those pics are amazing! I would love to go visit.

:namaste:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty. Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

Hello Will,

Thank you for posting this ~ even though it took me 10 months to discover it!!

Just goes to show that reading through the old threads is worthwhile.

Having been to most of the Theravada countries, I count Bagan, following behind the Holy Places in India, as the site which left the deepest impression on me.
Absolutely stunning - much more so than even these photos can show.

Thank you.
