Cloister Walk Flowers

Unlike my previous visit to Mahabodhi, this time the cloister walk was decorated with flowers.Wherever I have visited Buddhist temples around the world, flowers have been used as offerings. These symbolic offerings are designed to give rise to contemplative gratitude and inspiration. I don’t quite understand the link between the offerings and the benefits to the user but I can appreciate the beauty which the flowers bring to the shrines.
