Namaste from Namo Buddha Monastery !
We have been staying in the sacred hillside where the Prince, who eventually reincarnated into the Buddha, sacrificed his body to a starving mother tigress. During our time here we have been fortunate to listen to the teachings of the Lama-La (a high ranking monk) and learning about Buddhist practices. Some of the Lama-La’s teachings have included questioning our attachments and analysing our beliefs. We have been challenged in many ways during our stay, one being the meals. We have been practicing mindful eating finishing all our food and listening to the monks meal-time prayers. Today we will be participating in an afternoon of silence and are excited to see how it goes.
Sending love to everyone back home…
Phaedra, Maya and Matt
