Monks, Fire and Souls

August 17, 2006

OK, so the other day, I went to a temple. Turns out one of my colleagues here is actually a monk, and lives in a temple. I don't mean he has a shrine in his room, or anything lke that. This is a full-on, huge open temple. With a massive Buddah sitting at the front, with an altar, massive things hanging from the ceiling, and all the rest. Up in the mountains. He sometimes performs community services there. And outside, he has another room. It has Buddah in the middle, with a smaller Buddah on either side (apparently those who are seeking enlightenment?) and two guardians on each side, totalling four guardians in all. That smaller temple has been appointed a National Treasure.

[IF YOU HAVE THE REST OF THIS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!]
