The mainland of Southeast Asia sparkles with Buddha’s glory. Except for Malaysia, countries on this vast land are dominated by Buddhism, with Singapore and Vietnam dominated by Mahayana Buddhism originated from China, and Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Xishuangbanna of Yunnan, China dominated by Theravada Buddhism. In these Theravada Buddhist countries, stupas can be seen everywhere. The glamorous pagodas attract many tourists. Monks wearing orange and red kasaya walk through streets and lanes receiving dana from the public. In these countries, most of the males will “pabbajja” (to answer the call to Buddhist Monkhood) to become monks for a while. You can see that Buddhism is genuinely part of the locals’ lives. The journey in these Buddhist nations will be your pursuit of inner peace and a rich soul.
