Most large Korean army bases also have Dharma halls. This may strike some as strange, but Korea has the draft, and just about every man, regardless of religious faith, ends up in the military.
One of the Dharma halls I look after is on a base that’s relocating as part of a consolidation project. As a result, the entire base is being emptied and demolished. So last night, which was also Buddha’s Birthday, we had a concluding ceremony and Dharma talk. It was really a celebration of a place where people have been able meet and grow for the last 23 years. (Here are some pictures before the ceremony; I got distracted and forgot to ask someone to take pictures of the event itself. Sigh. 😉 You can see some photos of last year’s celebrations here, as well as a larger Korean Army Dharma hall.)

Thanks Tanya! It started with the streetfair post, so somehow, in posting those photos, something got screwed up. I went back and deleted what you suggested, and it seems to work now!
Lovely post, thank you.
As for the sidebar, it shows up okay on the post page (where you put comments) but not on the main page. Weird.
All the best,
changing, changing, changing…
Thanks for this and for your efforts. 🙂
How neat! Rafts and buildings get left behind, don’t they? 🙂
Indeed they do get left behind!
