Ora, Labora, & Lege

I just got back from ten days of travel in Europe. We had a terrific time, visiting Prague, Vienna, and several other wonderful places, including Budejovice (the original home of Budweiser beer), Regensburg (where Pope Benedict hails from)...

...and the Benedictine monastery of Melk on the Danube River in Austria. There the monks endeavor to live the Rule of Benedict: Pray, Work, and Read. And seek God each and every day.

There is a lovely garden at Melk, designed for contemplative walks, with an interesting stone sculpture that says that the kingdom of Heaven is within you.

Not a bad approach to life, I'd say. Maybe Benedict's rule should be more widespread.

Added Note: Astha asked to see some pics. Click here.

The pictures are coming. I'll probably provide a link to them.

It was a wonderful trip. Prague is so scenic and Vienna is full of music.
