The Gravity of Peace – Nalanda, Rajgir and Bodhgaya

Zooming in to a distant place, that stands near a hill, you travel through a mosaic of sugarcane and mustard farms.

As the haze of day is cleared by the sun on a winter afternoon, the picture of the busy city fades in to a calm, serene landscape.

The ruins of once a place of global education to the temple of Lord Buddha atop a hill overlooking the city; the incessant breeze and the balm of winter sun pushes you as if carelessly in a state of meditation.

You sit and observe, like many others around you overpowered by a force that relaxes the mind as you gaze in a vacuum of thoughts under the gravity of peace.
