Transformative, yes. But the transformation had been happening for me slowly for many years. So, you could say I was well and truely primed by the time I was in the Hall of Dhamma Mandala.
It was in Myanmar that the great Ayerwaddy of saddha and gratitude began to flow like it never had before and my life had changed forever.
Anyway, enough about me...
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
