BODHGAYA

Buddha time

View Back Home on Irati's travel map.

The poorest state of India opened its temple doors to me and monastic life became the dwelling of my sould for a while. Pujas, talks, nuns, teachings, monks, tibetan refugees, chai and stories of horror by those why escaped the Chinese hands filled my days.
Life and death and ever changing cycles of impermanence.
Retreat time. Time of silence. Time of meditation.
I spoke tendedly with a Lama about the respect and unconditinal love for one’s parents. My emotions were huge ripples on the pond of my soul suddenly, and I became acutely alergic to telephone calls and emailing keyboards.
Shit... to late.
Once again, I feel an entire ocean between my family and myself.
Time for prayer under the Boddhi tree, the tree where Buddha sat and reached enlightement. Kaygu Monlem teachings and Bodhgaya is Tibet.
El estado mas pobre de todo India abrio sus puertas de templo a mi llegada y la vida monastica se convirtion en el refugio de mi alma durante un tiempo extenso. Pujas (ceremonias sagradas y rituales Buddhistas), conversaciones, lecciones, monjas y monjes buddhistas, refugiados tibetanos, chai e historias de horror contadas por los huidos de las manos Chinas llenaron mis dias.
Vida, muerte y los constantemente cambiantes ciclos de la impermanencia.
Tiempo de retiro. Tiempo de silencio. Tiempo de meditacion.
Hablaba com un Lama extensamente sobre el respeto y el amor incondicional por los padres de un@, y de repente, mis emociones se convirtieron en oleadas gigantes en el pozo de mi alma. Me converti alergica a las llamadas de telefono y los teclados para mandar emails a casa, como de la noche a la manhana.
Mierda... demasiado tarde.
Una vez mas, senti el oceano entero entre mi familia y yo.... y el sentimiento no era nuevo, la sensacion no era nueva.
Tiempo de meditacion bajo el arbol de Boddhi, donde Buddha medito hasta que alcanzo el Nirvana, la iluminacion. Las ceremonias sagradas y ensenhanzas del Kaygu Monlem y Bodhgaya es Tibet.
