The portrait presented here is essentially that of Burmese Buddhism “on the hoof”, as it is practiced by the rank and file of lay Buddhists, mirroring the world as perceived through traditionalist Buddhist eyes. For the most part it is a strange world to Western perceptions—one almost from another planet, one “a thousand lives away” from it, one of karma, endless rebirths, nats and pagodas.
