A book on Buddhist Pilgrimage by Chan Khoon San

Greetings,

I highly recommend this text...

Buddhist Pilgrimage
by Chan Khoon San
http://www.buddhistelibrary.org/library ... ?aipath=69

... in terms of the information and background it provides into Buddhist Pilgrimages to the Four Holy Places of Pilgrimage, the Four Places of Principal Miracles, and the general information about the significance, history and people associated with pilgrimages in the past.

I found it a nice stop-gap for activity I would really like to do one day.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Thanks for the link. It seems that the site is from the people behind Buddhanet :)

@retrofuturist: based on your avatar, are you associated with Buddhanet? :anjali:

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

No, but I appropriated the animation from someone who had in turn appropriated the same image from Buddhanet before they applied the grey background to it.
