here are some pictures from my trip to Amaravati


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …

He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hi Manapa,

Thank you for sharing the photos. I spent a day at Amaravati in the summer and I really liked it there, it was very peaceful.

Thank you Manapa. For those who may not know the story the Sangha have taken a former Social Services childrens home and made it a place of great peace and beauty. For the benefit of anyone who lives in or is visiting the UK it is near Hemel Hempstead.

It was what I was told by one of the monks when Amaravati first opened..Of course he might have been wrong.

Im sure that you would agree that it is a place of peace and beauty whatever its origin..
