Buddhist pilgrimage starts tonight...

Komusō represented the Fuke Zen Buddhist School, a branch of Buddhism originating from China. Their unusual and distinctive feature, the straw basket worn on the head, symbolized the “absence of ego". 
Two friends and I are doing a kind of pilgrimage to the historic Buddhist sites in India ( Sarnath, Bodh Gaya, Kushinagar, etc).   We leave tonight, but I already hear the hypnotic 

Tanpura  music playing in my head...
