After two months of travel I am finished for now.

I learned an immense amount things and had a lot of personal insights along the way. Travel is good for the soul.

Here is part I of my brief account of my travels.

I think it'll come to maybe three parts, maybe four. Maybe not so brief. :shrug:

Is the area in Japan where you are OK in light of recent developments?

Now I have had a vicarious pilgrimage to the mystic East!

Just spent some time reading and looking at the pics....wonderful trip. I haven't been to Kathmandu in more than a decade. Gotta get back there to Boudha, what a special place that is.

Thanks for the links, very inspiring to read!

It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Next entry is up.

http://huayanzang.blogspot.com/2011/04/ ... ale-v.html

This details my stay in China. I didn't really go too many places. I stuck around Shanghai for awhile not doing much pilgrim-related activities. My friends looked after me. Staying and talking to them I learned a lot about modern China.

Image

Though I didn't detail it in the entry, while in Shanghai I was invited to the launch party for the game Alice 2 by American McGee. It was interesting attending a party full of video game producers. What's funny though is the bar was Buddhist themed. They had statues and siddham characters all over the walls. Maitreya Buddha patiently watched all the drunkards. :smile:

Last part:

http://huayanzang.blogspot.com/2011/04/ ... le-vi.html

This details Nara and Koyasan. The last places I visited. :smile:

Image

Next place I want to visit is Mount Kailash. It is a costly trip what with permits to get into Tibet and so on, but in the future I would like to go.

I think a tour of the many temples in Sri Lanka and SE Asia would be good, too.
