A trip to Gaya then BodhGaya.
I had just attended a friend’s wedding; and was heartily accompanied by my friend’s friend.
So I visited the Buddha Temples and main temple as well.
As I was completely in calm & peace even though it was summer, I was thoughtful on a sight. After doing the Darshana, I saw a couple/wed doing the Darshana as well.
Of course with me the friend was with his wife as well.
I expressed my thoughts with them that The Buddha I mean Gautama Buddha taught for detachment and he himself left the Family Sansaar as we know.
And what we see is having a Sansaara, couple! (In fact so many couples, mainly!)
And they smiled and agreed yes!
As aI waited at the railway station, the Great Buddha’s quotes and wisdom were on the walls. Literally writings on the wall.
I wondered, so what Buddhism/ Boudha Dharma is then having family and children so as to propagate Boudha Dharma and gyan! Irony!
Well, well, would I have been born as a being on the earth if it was not for my own family and theirs and so on!
