Join the conversation about In the Buddha’s Light: The Temples of Luang Prabang, which contains photographs by Jack Parsons, an essay by Joanna Hurley, a foreword by Joan Halifax, and a preface by Stuart Ashman

This engaging memoir, illustrated with 75 color images, takes the reader on a journey into the heart of one of Southeast Asia’s most beautiful and enchanting small cities. Lush, exotic, and full of contradictions, Luang Prabang sits at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers in Laos. Formerly the capital of the ancient royal kingdom of Lane Xang, “home of 1000 elephants,” it is now a World Heritage site that hosts nearly half a million visitors a year. It is also home to more than 35 Buddhist temples, and the center of spiritual life in a communist country that is the most-bombed place in history.
