Vincent4I would like to thank Bhante Mahinda and BMSM for giving me this opportunity to attend the Metta Convention and joined the pilgrimage trip post-convention.

Metta Convention ended with the participants joining the an awe-inspiring Pichamall Puja in the afternoon and the Global Meditation at night.

Karma brings us together to the holy places like the Maha Bodhi Tree at Anuradhapura. This place is reckoned as the oldest surviving historical tree in the world. The place is crowded and full of people all the way we walk to the Maha Bodhi Tree Temple and I never expected that I would see this kind of scene here. The offering of Jasmine flowers is unique and grand. I witnessed some of the pious Buddhists as they meditate under the hot sun with much peace and happiness. I would like to share the picture I captured on the memorable moments and these inspired me the most in the trip.
