After 5 times traveling with ATJ since 2011, Our guide arranged to have a monk bless my prayer beads at Katargama Buddhist Temple. I had asked to have my beads blessed during the trip, but this was so much more than I had expected. All of the members of our group participated in the blessing so it was very special. Their efforts were greatly appreciated! We are looking forward to our next group trip to Burma – Land of Golden Pagoda.
