There is Buddha peace and wisdom within all of us – … the secret is to find and retrieve it. There’s an old story about a clay Buddha in Cambodia, which was obstructing the construction of a new road. The tale tells of this statue being covered in thick clay to disguise it from marauders, […]

It was lightly snowing when I arrived in Den Haag, a day earlier than I should have, due to the lack of suitable flights ensuring I’d arrive on time. When I stepped out of my taxi at the hotel the first thing I noticed was the warmth of the flourescent pink light, glowing through the […]
