donghwasa

our walk through an unbelievably gorgeous park from the gondola on mount palgong to donghwa temple (donghwasa).....all i did was gasp the entire way because the changing leaves were beautiful beyond my capacity to speak....the guardians of donghwasa....protector of bodyprotector of mind....a sword to cut away illusionprotector of wisdom...his hand is placed in the "do not fear" mudraprotector of life....holding a torch to light the waywith arms wide open.....embracing the falling leavesbeautifully painted panels on the outside temple wallspricelesslittle buddhatemple catwe shall not cease from exploration
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.
