A Pilgrimage Special : White Temple

Moving into Sujata village was memorable. Our bus stopped just after it had crossed the Niranajana River and as we alighted, there in the distance, we saw the Hong Kong heart throb, Daniel Chan Hiu Tung whom we had seen some days ago shooting a documentary Journey to the West at the ancient Nalanda University. He recognized us and we waved at each other and then we were both on our way, the film star went on with his shooting and we went to Sujata village. Sujata village at a glimpse looks like an African village but then after we have visited Sujata stupa, we walked through a farm, a more Indian scenery, I suppose, to a small white temple which houses both Buddhist statues and Hindu statues. The walk there through muddy lanes was tainted with healthy but untidy children, old men with gloomy look, young men who appeared like charlatans as well as handicapped people with lifeless limbs who dragged themselves after us, asking for money...

When I see them, I count my blessings. What can a normal human being do for them when there is a compassionatae God around?
