Sweet Burma…
A country rooted in the real Dhamma, the original teaching of the Buddha.
A people with such a desire for Peace and Harmony. A country so spiritually free and yet still so politically constrained and trapped! The situation is quickly changing in Myanmar : modernity is arriving fast, with it, let’s hope a real freedom for its population too!
Despite that, as a sensitive traveller, a very subtil peace and a somehow spiritual energy seems to flow in all your body and infiltrate your thoughts. The country of pure Buddhism as some say. Is it thanks to the mantras spread in the air day and night by the temples, is it thanks to the authentic faith of its people or is it thanks to the generosity of this same people? The fact remains that you feel incredibly well and simply welcomed there, if you stay open-minded and tolerant.

Having been closed for decades, with very few ways to access to the outer world, the country is still much traditional. However, It is now catching up with modernism as international compagnies and brands are rushing there to establish themselves. Globalisation seems to be finally arrived in Myanmar, for the worst and the best…
The worst, same as everywhere else in the World, is that it loses its own culture and singularity. That its Spiritual values decline with the rising of capitalism.
The best, would be more freedom and opportunities for the People. More access to Knowledge of any kind, more exchanges of people and competences. More diversity.
Nevertheless, until the dictatorship still at the head of the country, speaking about real freedom and opportunities would be unfortunately quite relative…

Yet, there, we have been won over the population’s qualities. These qualities that make a poor street food maker offer you breakfast on your first day. We will remember forever the simplicity and authentic joy in the eyes of this total stranger who fed us for a meal. For them, rules the power of Karma, or the way to accomplish as many good actions as possible in order to prepare themselves a better future. The power of being good to others. Do Good, Be Good…and have Good, back.
A simple unwritten Humanity Law that builds a healthy Community.

In Myanmar, we might have felt people being quite more introverted than in other countries in Asia, usually already quite reserved. But we felt a strong humanity a deep respect and a real compassion. I guess this is what really stands out in Myanmar : its People and its Spiritual Life, alongside its remaining traditional lifestyle, although in a modernizing contexte.
It is a great country for Portraits Photography, Street Life Photography and obviously Architectural Photography, with the beautiful temples. A good Travel Photography destination then.
