Excerpt from A Burmese Enchantment
There are hundreds of white and gold pagodas lining the bluffs of the Irrawaddy. Long white stairways descend to where lions stand in pairs beside the river. They suggest many things to the enquiring mind, and you may perhaps catch therein glimpses of the hidden beauties of Buddhism. Its inﬂuence broods over everything, hallows the repose of deserted shrines, steeps the ideas, guides the actions, supplies the motives, pervades the atmosphere, of Burma and the Burmese.
