Beneath the Bodhi Tree

INDIA | Fri, 12 Feb 2016 | By davidford | Views [263]

I had agreed to meet Manidhamma beneath the Bodhi Tree at 8am and had gotten up a bit earlier to spend some time there alone. Not for the first time I found myself in an irritable mood which I tried to shake off by circumambulations and then sitting ... Read more >

Photos: My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

ETHIOPIA | Sat, 12 Jan 2013 | By leylandcecco | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

A Shit? Why Yes I Am

JAPAN | Thu, 22 Apr 2010 | By kitschey | Views [700] | Comments [2]
