Hello! It was a great day for me to host 2 experienced teachers! It was a great day of learning for me as well. I thoroughly enjoyed discussing the tenets of Buddhism and how it compared with Hinduism and Jainism which were the other 2 great religions of the day. Its very humbling to know that this was one of the best tour experiences you have had. I am grateful i got this opportunity to host you both.
