Temples in Imphal that have a pervading smell of fresh flowers. A bouquet of scents that overwhelm & purify your soul. Just the whiff of that scent makes you feel like you’ve entered a sacred zone of peace & reverence. I yearn sometimes for that smell of temple flowers! Sometimes it comes up as a memory & as swiftly as it arises it vaporizes leaving me lost and full of yearning for a moment.
