I sat under a tree for shade in the hot sun at noon day when i was greeted by a monk walking to temple, Hello i said and he waved to me with a beautiful smile and continued on his way. I thought to myself what a kind man with a genuine smile and pleasant spirit, i arose and thought to myself i shall also go to the temple and maybe i can be happy as this monk was. Walking into the temple i was greeted by chants and prostrations and incense filled the air. So calm was the spirit in this holy place. I placed incense in alter and prostrated before Buddha and i felt my heart flutter, sitting up i looked into eyes of the Buddha and saw the same smile i had earlier saw on the monks face as i sat under the tree.

This story i wrote was inspired by many of the short stories i have read in a book called Tibetan Folk Tales. Though this story is completely my own writing the style of writing is inspired from this book.

Namaste!
