Planet Burma - Burma: Land of Buddhas

BURMA: Encountering the Land of the Buddhas
by Ellis Everarda

Wherever the visitor turns in Burma he cannot but be met by the all-pervasive presence of the Buddhist faith, whether a pagoda or image, monk or procession. Here a rich and varied landscape plays host to a fun-loving colourful people, ever mindful of millennia of manners and custom, culture and tradition. Caught for ever in these outstanding images are the peace of the great Shwedagon Pagoda, and the bustle of downtown Yangon. The grandeur of the vast Irrawaddy River balances the delicate fragrance of Inle Lake. The devotional quiet of the pilgrim centre at Sagaing reveals contemporary Buddhism. A chapter on Bagan - a lost city of over two thousand staggeringly impressive monuments embodies Burma's golden age.
