Here are some photos from Doi Suthep, outside Chiang Mai, an important temple where some Buddha relics live. An incredible place!
Doi Suthep is a massive temple situated on a mountain (doi) overlooking CM. Like the other famous temples, it crawled with camera toting tourists. The vast majority were not there for spiritual reasons (at least overtly), and they jostled for the best photo-op position at key points around the sprawling edifice. I had some sweet moments there, especially at one altar where I meditated and prayed for some time, letting the crowd and noise swirl around me without resistance. It is moments like this that I choose my world. I learn from the world. I stay within my sovereign center. I am so grateful to be here!
