Traveling to a remote village in the central mountains of Myanmar, I discover a community of 1,000 monks, 416 young nuns and hundreds of civilian students.
The first to arrive are the designated sweepers of the day
Every afternoon, the 416 nuns climb a long set of steps up to a hilltop temple. Rain or shine, day in, day out, these dedicated young nuns come to meditate and pray at sunset.
The the long procession begins up the stairs
The young nuns are very happy to come up for sunset every day
Silent meditation before the prayers
As the sun sets over the mountains
And down the stairs they return to their dorms for the evening....
I am honoured to have been invited and allowed to witness this incredible event.

This truly is a place of peace and happiness.
