“We need a coat with two pockets. In one pocket there is dust, and in the other pocket there is gold. We need a coat with two pockets to remind us who we are.”

The Golden Rock

The Golden Rock at Kyaiktiyo, Myanmar, is a holy and important site which Buddhists frequent in large numbers. A gold leaf covered boulder precariously balances on the edge of a cliff, and pilgrims come to worship this astonishing defiance of gravity. It is said that a single Buddha hair exists under the rock.
