There is always some spiritual connection made when you visit a Buddhist monastery and it was no different when we visited one of the many Wats in the city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. And this spiritual connection was made even when we were just visiting as tourists.
It was just a small Wat when compared to the other more elaborate, intricately carved and larger wats, but it was here that we got a chance to strike the large gong in front of the monastery. The sound that emanated from it was truly magnificent. It had such a soothing effect that we kept hitting it for close to five minutes. May be, this sound made an inner connection or may be it just sent the right vibrations. Whatever it was, it sure was a spiritual sound for me. I hope you can listen to it in the video and make the same connection as I did while listening to it in person.
