[chuck] in Dharma, Laos, Si Saket, Vientiane

Spent some time this morning at Wat Si Saket, the oldest Buddhist temple in Vientiane. Have posted on this before (see Wat Si Saket and Collateral Damage), but this is such an amazing place full of exquisite Buddhist iconography that I wanted to share this video footage. [NOTE: Did some bowing and left a donation, perhaps to assuage the karmic repercussions of the U.S. involvement in Laos forty years ago during the Vietnam War.  Or maybe just because bowing is the appropriate thing to do at a Buddhist temple. Music is by Keith Kenniff.]
