What an amazing place. I was to a Buddhit Monastery with Mary Robison in the fall of 2014 and it was so peaceful and quiet. It has a very special feeling to it. We tip toed around very respectfully enjoying the solace and beauty.

Wonderful job here, Ujjwal!

P.S. I actually just posted a funny birthday car on my gallery for Mary using the monastery. :))) #11405305
