New Article in Perceptive Travel


Please enjoy my spankin’ fresh essay in the new issue of Perceptive Travel:

Nothing to Achieve: In the Place of Enlightenment, Joshua Berman learns that being a pilgrim in the Mahabodhi Temple is about more than mere religion.

The piece was written about a full moon visit to the most sacred tree in the world: the Place of Enlightenment in Bodhgaya, India, where the Buddha attained enlightenment. The series of blog postings from that visit begins with footsteps and continues with reports about our meditation retreat.

Perceptive Travel is a relatively new publication, updated bimonthly, and self-described as “a web site for independent travelers with open senses and open minds.” I’m in some pretty good company, so please also enjoy the other essays in the March/April edition.
