Library and Archives of Buddhism, Yangon

Postby Ben » Sat Nov 13, 2010 3:43 am

I found a curious reference to the 'Library and Archives of Buddhism' in a lonely planet guide. According to their travel guide, it is situated under the western arch of Shwedagon Paya. I'm interested in finding out more about it and, if you have been there, your impressions.
kind regards

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
