Meditate in Radiance

This is our entry in The Daily Post Daily Prompt: Radiate.

We visited Bagan, Myanmar, in February 2017. On our first day there, we went on a photo shoot with a self-taught photographer named Maung Maung Bagan, whose stunning photos have won numerous international awards.  Near the end of our afternoon shoot, Maung Maung drove us, with our young hired monk, to a small square temple at the end of a small dusty road. The temple was locked, but the caretaker and two helpers were waiting for us. A 5000 kyat bill (less than $4 US) passed from our hands to the caretaker, and we all entered the temple.  On the western wall of the temple was a small alcove framing a perforated stone window, with light radiating from the setting sun. What a beautiful place for meditation!
