Mystical Laos

Mystical Laos

“Householders, the homeless  and  monastics
in mutual dependence
both reach the true Dharma….” _ the Buddha

Mystical LaosMysticism is at the heart of all religions, including Buddhism. To many Buddhist in Laos, the act of alms giving is a daily ritual that connects the average individual to a spiritually developed person or mystic, a Buddhist monk. It is a symbolic connection. Each is showing respect and humbleness for the other as well as for the alms giver’s deceased loved ones.

The above Image is a composite of seven photographs I took during an early morning “Alms Walk” in Luang Prabang, Laos recently.

There is a lot more Mystical stuff going on in Ailsa’s Backpack.
