Yesterday I had the good fortune to be at our main temple for monks, Kwang-myong Sa. Daehaeng Kun Sunim had gone there for a visit, and it also turned out to be one of the nicest days of the year.
We’ve been working for a few years on building a new Dharma hall, completing each phase as money is saved to pay for it.

Gorgeous! I can just feel the sunshine and the lovely sense of peace. Thank you!
I didn’t leave work until after dark that day…
As much as I love the big, wall-to-wall windows in my classroom,they can be a big tease sometimes!
Fabulous. Can I go visit? How long can I stay?
You’re always welcome, but having spent so many years in Thailand, you might not like the season that’s coming up next!
Actually, a friend of mine who’d ordained in Burma really liked the Korean mountains – he could sit down in the forest without a horde of crawling things trying to eat him!
What a beautiful setting! You are very fortunate.
From yesterday’s posting, this certainly fits:
The world we live in
is none other than
the realm of Buddha.
Looking at these neat photos a thought occured – ‘it is easy to be a holy man on top of the mountain’. And since I don’t have any Dharma brothers, I have to include stupid squirrels in the park in my circle of friends.
Out temple here is near the garbage transfer station, regardless of occasional smell, the temple itself has very frangrant feeling. Autumn, or Fall as it is called more often here, Korean or Canadian or any other place on Earth has something interesting, maybe even more interesting then Spring, as it is often admired, because it all goes into beautiful colours and it calms down as if hinting on returning home, home – the place with no name
