Two weeks of daily mediation and yoga, volunteer work, Indian cooking classes, intensive study of Hindi, silver smithing jewelry classes and discourses on Hinduism come to a smiling and sigh-worthy halt. Our time in the Holy Hindu city of Shiva sets….
And our introduction to Buddhism and Bodhgaya rises!
To the Varanasi train station, and on our way to the very town where the Buddha himself sat under the Bodhi tree and became enlightened.
(Mey Bodhgaya ja rahii hoon or mujko acha lug raha hai. Dekhiye! Mey Hindi likh sakti hoon!)
