India Day 4:

It's only been 4 days?!? Days go by so slow here, especially today. We went to visit one of the most sacred places on Earth. The Mahabodhi Temple, the place where Buddha gained enlightenment. There were so many people praying and doing religious stuff taking it all in. The place is HUGE!!! 

Some say that you go there and dedicate merits for yourself and your loved ones and it's a time to wish for things. I think Buddha, or any other god you believe in already knows. I think He can already hear us. I dedicated anyway. To the people just outside the temple having to beg for money and to everyone else I could and couldn't think of at the moment. I hoped it does something. Personally, I don't think I'm a very religious person. So the significance of being where I am now hasn't hit me yet. Someday it might. 
Other than out adventure this morning, the rest of the day went by very slowly. I sat at a table selling CD's the entire afternoon. It's so dusty here that a few hours after I started selling, the CD's were already covered in a blanket of dust! 
It's now 5 pm...
How much more sacredness can I take? I feel terrible for being so un-faithful.
