Then it was time to return to our hotel and while we were relaxing Larry heard a faint chanting that began to get louder and louder. So we stepped out onto our balcony and there was a huge procession of monks and other folks all carrying signs and candles. We had no idea what is was about but it didn't matter-we had to join in! The vigil wandered around the town and ended up inside His Holiness's complex in front of his temple. For the next hour or so, several people spoke passionately at a podium in front of cameras and about 100 eager tourists and dedicated monks. It was a very special and spontaneous moment that we were lucky to be a part of. Unfortunately, however, we had no idea what was being said as none of it was in English. But, the feeling was enough to warm our hearts----and we left happily to Taste of India for dinner.
