For me the high point of our Buddhist Pilgrimage last month was up on Gridhakuta (Vulture's Peak) outside Rajgir, physically and metaphorically! This was where the Buddha formulated and gave his most significant discourses. And those rocks and caves have remained virtually unchanged for over 2,500 years. I felt overcome by the reality of the presence of the Buddha in that place. And our friend Jay was seated a few metres away from me chanting beautifully what I later found out was the Heart Sutra! There are some experiences which pass all understanding. I wonder what yours are?
