Somewheres between Lumbini and Kushinagar layeth Bodh Gaya and Sarnath and that’s where it happened. Like Captain Marvel zapped between the eyes… What follows is unedited and in the style of what may be akin to the sumi ink drawing style of the Japanese where the pen sketches in one continuous motion not to be picked up until the ink has finished and the pen has to get refilled. This isn’t an academic or historic retelling of anything. I’ve read various books and dug into accredited sources along the way and in far-flung locales, so there may be some conscious or unconscious reliance on these. But, this is meant to explore the notion of Taking Refuge. Through a voice that may have been lucky enough to have discovered some noble truth about this life or the next… if even for just an instant.

      Hi Kay,
      Yes, my brother has mentioned that you love Burma! Thanks for taking an interest in my blog and travels. The Shrine of Bahadur Shah is very interesting and is tucked on a small street off to the right of the main road that leads up to the Schwedagon’s South Entrance. December should be a great time to visit!
      best, sid
