The Weight Of God

Bowing Beneath the Bodhi Tree

Bowing Beneath the Bodhi Tree

She was bowed in supplication beneath the branches of the Bodhi Tree in a position my body has not been able to achieve for decades. I never have been very flexible so I am thankful my faith system does not require body contortions. Like all the devout I saw this day, she was facing in the direction of the massive trunk.  It looked to me as if she was being held down by the weight of the spiritual energy descending from the Bodhi Tree. Or, perhaps she did not want to stare into the face of her faith.
