"There two poverties in the world. Mental poverty and physical poverty. In our country we are physically poor, but mentally are very rich because of Buddhism. Over two thousands and two hundred years ago ancient Myanmar people established Buddhism monasteries in every village. Myanmar people grow up in the credence of Buddha. So, even if we are physically poor, I don't worry, mentally we are very rich!" Venerable Ashin Nyanissara

Burma (the Republic of the Union of Myanmar) is a sovereign state in Southeast Asia bordered by Bangladesh, India, China, Laos and Thailand. Burma became an independent nation in 1948, initially as a democratic nation and then, following a coup in 1962, a military dictatorship which formally ended in 2011. Burma is a country rich in jade and gems, oil, natural gas and other mineral resources. A large majority of the population practices Theravāda Buddhism. Other religions are practiced largely without obstruction.Place London, UK. Myanmar Date December 2013 - 2014
