Whilst not directly related to a traditional pilgrimage, it looks like I might be visiting Thailand next year... which will be very exciting as I've never had the opportunity to visit a traditional Buddhist country before.
May those who go on pilgrimage find what they're looking for!
Me too, I hope, In November.
I noticed there are flights from Bangkok to Gaya now so I hope to sample both Thailand and India.
I am of nature to decay, I have not gone beyond decay.
I am of the nature to be diseased, I have not gone beyond disease.
I am of the nature to die, I have not done beyond death.
All that is mine, dear and delightful, will change and vanish.
I am the owner of my kamma, heir to my kamma, born of my kamma, related to
my kamma, abide supported by my kamma. Whatever kamma I shall do,
whether good or evil, of that I shall be the heir.
Thus we should frequently recollect.
- Upajjhatthana Sutta, Anguttara Nikaya v.57
