25-Jul-2011 Journeys on the silk road

Monday 25 July 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I went along to this function this evening, “Join Joyce Morgan, senior arts writer for The Sydney Morning Herald, as she discusses her new book. Journeys on the Silk Road follows the remarkable discovery and journey of the world’s oldest printed book, the Diamond Sutra.

Sealed for a thousand years in a cave in the Gobi Desert, its emergence has illuminated the spread of Buddhism along the Silk Road and coincided with the growing appeal of this ancient tradition in the West.

I was interested as I went there (Dunhuang, China) back in 1987 even before the authors of the above book! Also its good top support the local community – lots of people there!

Didn’t go swiming (still haven’t been since getting over the cold) but there was a good article in the Guardian about “Wild Swimming“.
