Thanks to Buddhism Asian peoples are less arrogant with unreliable materialism which leads to obvious destruction, and that's enough to be a blessing.

The series are most interesting...It is like one is sitting and watching a movie of a step by step ceremony. The notes are always wonderful...
What an experience you have had...
Superb work...

i cannot agree on this take on arrogance. if you have never seen the arrogance of the nouveau riche around here, you have simply missed the boat. yes, the devoted are humble, but not the rest of the well off.

G√ľnther, my photos are just a report of what we have seen on our trips. It doesn't mean that I agree with everything that is shown in the pictures!
I certainly agree with you that what is shown in this picture is a form of arrogance of the well-off people in Burma, but I always try to write the captions of my photos in an objective way!
By the way, our guide tolds us that monks will never say thank you to the people who offer them food or money. They consider it as a natural thing!
