Journey Home

As I prepare for the journey back to the Pure Land I find an inner peace and contentment taking shape within me. I so look forward to seeing old friends in Leh and to walking the pilgrim’s path in the rarified atmosphere of the high Himalaya, visiting monasteries and meditating in the silence. Flight to Ladakh


About Buddhist Pure Land

I have been traversing the Himalayas for half my life as a self styled Buddhist pilgrim. I have a degree in cultural Anthropology and have a deep respect for indigenous cultures and the insight that they offer those of us who did not grow up in an indigenous cultural setting. I believe that exposure to diversity can reshape one’s worldview and open the mind and heart. In the act of immersing oneself in the philosophy, architecture and landscape that has shaped a culture, we expose ourselves to the diversity that is our humanity and our universal heritage. I hope to bring that experience to those with whom I share these journeys.
