Jamma Mosque

25,000 people, men in the courtyard, women off to the side in the arcades, fit here for prayer.

I went for the mosque, I stayed for the rugs (which were just being laid, for the Friday noon Call to Prayer)


Koran - copies for anybody's use. The Imam was about to enter (read, as a woman, I had to get out), so I can't be sure, but assume...I wouldn't have been able to read any of those copies, even if I'd had all morning.

    Hi Mary Ellen,

    What a wonderous trip and it’s so fun to go along with you on your adventures. The chapel video was the perfect way to get the feel of your surroundings and hearing your voice was the best. Take care. Love, Mary and Dorothy

    Mary, thanks so much for your (and Dorothy’s) note. I’ve left the ashram now, as you know, which means no more tine with those lovely teachers and kids. My work with then( inspired and enxouraged by your teach-with-what’s-at-hand philosophy), went well, if never QUITE the way I” d planned!). I’m definitedly hoping to stay in touch with them…I’ll ler you know.
