      It is incredible, but Cambodia has a darker side, namely the Killling Fields and S21 prison which are featured in the travel post I’ve linked. Thanks so much.

    Thanks Keith,

    Love this series. Love the vibrant hues of saffron amidst the ancient stones.
    The ancient relics seem to have come alive with the presence of these serene monks.
    I am always awe-struck by their serene demeanour, and the calm and gentleness these monks exude.

    On a trip to Mcleod Ganj in Dharmshala, I had the opportunity to watch them closely. I wonder if I could spend a day with them- living the life they lead. Wonder how unique it would be from our grimy city lives. But then, the grass is always greener on the other side. So who knows. Ha! Ha!

    This is one of your best posts. But then I’m a biased Buddhist you see! ;-)))

      Whenever I’ve been in Asia, which is quite a often, I always find them to have a calming influence over me. On my Nepal trip, our group was accompanied by a Buddhist monk called Losan and he took us to Lumbini which is said to be Buddha’s birthplace, There we witnessed Buddhist monks meditating under the tree which supposedly marks the very spot. If you are interested, there are some pictures I took in this post – https://keithsramblings.blogspot.com/2011/04/we-travelled-by-coach-taxi-elephant.html
      Thanks so much for your comment Natasha
