The Heritage of Wonder and Pride
‘Burma, The Land of Pagodas’ as my grandmother written, we will find pagodas wherever we go. Pagodas play a memorable part in the life of a Burmese Buddhist. We have been taught that wherever we visit, we will have to go to the great pagoda of the place first and raise our hands in prayer and make a wish that our trip be saved and sound. Yes, pagodas, how they meant to Buddhists! I believe earthquake or any other natural disaster cannot wash away our love and pride in pagodas and its glories although the earthquake wiped out the pagoda since in the past until to the present.
