Serenity amidst chaos

Dharamsala, or more specifically McLeod Ganj, is a refuge for Tibetans and is the headquarters of the Tibetan government-in-exile. It’s a beautiful little town where you can get up close and personal with Tibetan culture, and can choose to volunteer or learn courses during your visit there. We were in McLeod Ganj for Buddh Purnima this year. During our visit, a peaceful protest march was held in town, which attracted participation not only from monks and Tibetans, but also from a lot of tourists. People joined in the march along ever step, as the protestors walked through the narrow lanes of the town. There was a buzz of conversation as some tourists stood on the sidelines watching the demonstration, others joined in the march, and still others were chatting among themselves, happy to be witnessing a demonstration. In the middle of all of the hullabaloo that day was a monk, calm and focused despite the general air of solemnity mixed with gaiety, walking along in prayerful meditation. A moment of pure Zen.
