As I was wakling towards the entrance of the Mahabodhi Temple, the place of Gautama Buddha’s attainment of nirvana (Enlightenment), in Bodh Gaya (बोधगया), in the Indian state of Bihar, I saw this Tibetan Buddhist nun who was sitting along the road.
She seemed to be tired probably because of a long journey in order to attempt the International Tipitaka Chanting Ceremony and she was resting there for a while.
A young Indian girl was helping her.
I could see that she is not an ordinary woman, I believe that she is highly educated as she is an elder nun and, as I could listen that she kept on repeating mantras, I felt that she was preserved in the sincere and dedicated practice of spiritual teachings which are the heart of Tibetan culture.
