[chuck] in Dharma, Myitkyina, bo tree

Apparently, I really like to take pictures of bo trees (see Bo Trees and Another Bo Tree). This one was tucked away in the back of the main pagoda in Myitkyina. Love the little statue.  [NOTE: Was unable to find out if the tree came from a cutting from the "original" one at Bodh Gaya, but I'm inclined to think that it did. There are cuttings of cuttings of cuttings of the Bodh Gaya tree scattered throughout all of South East Asia].
