December 8, 2000 ,22 students from WOU and 12 other pilgrims
joined together for a pilgrimage no one would ever forget.
Dr. Jerry Braza and his wife, Karen facilitated the opportunity
to experience India, Nepal and Thailand. The pilgrimage
Included learning about culture and history and the study of
Shantum Seth was not only our guide
along the way, but also a teacher and a friend. There
is a picture displayed of Shatum and his family, who welcomed
our group with hospitality and warmth.
A few sights we were fortunate
to see included the Taj Mahal, The Ganges River and an overwhelming
amount of smiling children.
Our display will hopefully give
you a sense of the beautiful experience and interesting artifacts
we encountered along the footsteps of Buddha.
There is another pilgrimage planned
for winter 2003, which I recommend everyone consider, as it
is definitely a life-changing experience."
