A Temple by Moonlight

After the light offerings to close the INEB Conference, I stuck around the Mahabodhi temple until it closed, captivated by the serenity and golden light that night.

Lamp offerings outside the side gate.

Pilgrims bedding down for an over-night stay beside the Bodhi Tree. I have to say, I was really impressed to see these specially designed meditation nets--a must for insatiable Indian mosquitos and all sorts of free-wheeling beetles and bugs.

 Late night offerings for the Buddha inside the main temple.

A thousand Marigolds left in offering overnight.

A golden quilted lotus offering.
