I met those two Buddhist monks under the Bodhi Tree behind the Mahabodhi Temple which is the place of Gautama Buddha’s attainment of nirvana (Enlightenment), in Bodh Gaya (बोधगया), in the Indian state of Bihar.
They filled my soul with happiness and I’ll never forget those moments of bliss spent in this holy place…
