A UNESCO World Heritage City
Sri Maha Bodhi-The Sacred Bodhi Tree
Again, we opted to visit this site in the evening to be able to fully encompass ourselves in the sanctity of this location. We came upon a community ceremony that evening. The stupa area was lined with worshippers in their purest white outfits. A monk sat under a colorful umbrella and gave a special sermon into a microphone. The scene could not have been more perfect. As I walked around the stupa and reflected upon what it stood for, I could feel the spirituality and the peaceful energy of the group.
