At the nunnery in Sagaing


To learn more about Buddhism – keyword holistic approach – we (accompanied by Z. and T.,  both local anthropologists) went to some nunneries in Sagaing. The idea is to find a nunnery that I can visit in the next days and talk to the nuns. In this manner I want to learn more in general about choices in the lives of women, the    buddhist way of life (the precepts, customs and general behavior towards nuns and at temples and pagodas) and improve my Myanma of course.
A secondary thought here was also to find a spot to sleep over once in a while. But I think the location-problematic deserves another blogpost.

PS: check for the cat in the picture – trying to distract the nun. She was climbing all over her…
