"Very Devout Buddhists" Top 5 Page for this destination Rangoon Local Custom Tip by cochinjew

Rangoon Local Customs: 34 reviews and 47 photos

Burmese are unlike any other group of people whom you would run into in Asia.. they are very devout but more importantly they live their belief systems.. it is heartwarming to see them accumulating merit by doing good deeds on a daily basis...
here are two photographs of a baby, who is still at his mothers breast, learning to pray without being told, at the Schwedagon pagoda..

In no country in Asia, I have felt the spiritual ambience as I have felt in Burma.. there are rituals like they have in India but the sensation is very different..
