Sharbaad Markanda ~ Ambala


1. A Hindu temple near the starting point.

I took a selfie with them.

This was the first time that I received donation for pilgrimage from an Indian. I was deeply moved.

When he understood my pilgrimage, he performed a big gesture and praising talk.

He raised his hands up toward sky. Then he looked at me and said, “I am proud of you.”

I heard this kind of praising words for the first time. I felt great rewarding for my pilgrimage.

He said that his cousin was studying in Korea.

Today was the 333th day of my pilgrimage. In fact, today was a smart day.

(The word ‘smart’ and ’33’ have same pronunciation in Korean language.)
