Spiritual exercises

I have got into the habit of joining the locals on their morning kora - a circumamulatory lap or two of the local monastery.

I'm not a fully-signed-up Buddhist, but it's a nice way to start the day - unfurl the lungs, stretch the legs, and clear the mind, in laid-back company and the calming envelope of the background [om mani padme] hum.

Here are a pair of my fellow-koraers this morning.


  1. Sorry - before the pedants get in on the act (only a matter of time - there are lots of them out there), that should be "here IS a pair of my fellow-koraers".

  2. You do realise that you can edit your posts?
