A Pilgrimage Special: Quiet Moments

At Bodhgaya, especially at Mahabodhi temple, there were many Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world. But the crowd was not as impressive as the one you see in Mecca where people seem to be swarming and swirling round and round the Kaaba. In Bodhgaya, the Buddhists on pilgrimage went about their own business; most were just meditating...enjoying perhaps their own quiet moments...

...when have they time to work? I have not too much desires, but when I see the persons that make their life from piligrimages, I envy them.

I believe they take some time off. Unless they are monks who give up everything to lead a holy life, people like take some time off. And because of that too, monk need to be supported by the public.
