Each morning in Yangon (Rangoon) begins before sunrise with meditation
at Shwe Dagon. During the meditation the sun rose over this beautiful
Myanmar, previously known as Burma, is also called the land of gold. In January 2003 I went on a yatra with my Vipassana meditation teacher S N Goenka and about another 500 of his students. This is a pictorial account of that trip, which was a truly wonderful experience.
