This section documents reflections on my two month journey to Thailand (and briefly, India and Nepal) February/March 2013, during which I disconnected entirely from the internet and my cell phone, joined a pilgrimage to the four places in northern India and southern Nepal where the Buddha was born, got enlightened, taught his first disciples, and died, and spent most of the rest of the time being introduced to the formal practice of Vipassana meditation as taught at the Chom Tong Insight Meditation Center.
