hitting the road

So August is a big time for weddings here (yes, those would be ‘monsoon weddings’) and my teacher has invited Sangeeta and me to attend one near his native village, about half a day’s journey from here. The village is in the general area of Amaravati, one of the earliest remaining Buddhist stupas, and the site of a Kalachakra initiation for world peace by His Holiness the Dalai Lama earlier this year. After the weddings, we will visit Amaravati, and another monastery carved into a mountain, in which the great Buddhist logician Dignāga lived.

Expect to be back in Visakhapatnam, and back online, on the 14th or 15th.
