Dalai Lama is coming to Bodh Gaya in early January.
But we are going to Dharmsala by May on foot.
I think it is proper for us to meet him at Dharmsala.
After Gotama Siddhartha achieved enlightenment, it is said he receive a milk soup from a young lady from Suzata village. It is said he crossed this river and went to Sazata village to express his thanks.
I crossed the river by walking the bridge.
This is road band on the other side of the river which Buddha might have crossed over.
While I walked the same road where Buddha might have walked, I recorded the landscape by smartphone.
Wide and white sandy plain.
I crossed the river reversely and came back to Bodh Gaya.
From now on, I am walking to Gaya. There is a road along the river.
This is an old Hindu temple.
A want ad for students of Islamic school.
Today I walked 17 km.
Today is the last day of 2017. For me, 2017 was a golden time. Early in tomorrow morning I am going to Sarnath and Varanasi. Sarnath is one of the 8 sacred places of Buddhism. Varanasi is a holy place of Hinduism.
