    No it is not dangerous.. but thoughts behind built this step you have to touch by hand, fill lord vishnu power & blesses. Unique construction.. we have to understand engineer's sentiments

    Not everyone should just climb around here. Westeners mostly do not have the respect and love needed.

    What happened for you make a comment like that +Sofie Løve Forsberg? may I ask? I have been there twice and not seen any disrespect from westerners. I did however get abused by two young Cambodian girls because I refused to pay US$30- for a book that was for sale inside the Temple grounds at US$10-.

    +Barry Schwind It was an indirect reference to the caption to this posting. You can also change the term "westeners" to "people". My experience from visiting sacred places.

    +Barry Schwind I've been to secred places of the socalled westeners in the west and seen to lack of respect by westeners.
    My belief is that people are thee same wherever you go – good and bad in everyone.
    So happy to hear that you have other and more positive experiences, Barry.

    This picture makes me remember what my mom said about her trip there with my dad when they were young. I can't believe that they have not installed a handrail even now.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
