    The remains of the temple building –the Mondop –is now roofless and open to the sky, and so as one approaches, the Buddha image is clearly visible within.

    A palpable presence beyond that long slit-shaped entrance.
    You feel drawn towards it, and as you get closer it is as if it focuses your mind, and you loose all sense of scale and of your wider surroundings.

      Stray a little to one side, and the resulting partial view, mysterious now, draws you back into alignment…

            …until finally you enter the temple, and look upwards into that all-enveloping gaze.

                          Dear Lady C,

                          Thank you, thank you very much.

                          Nothing more peaceful than spending time meditating and aware, in front of a Buddha.
                          With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

                            As well as the Phra Atchana I took some photographs of another Buddha image at Sri Chum (seen beyond the trees to the right of the mondop in the view in post #14)
