It's an interesting thought, isn't it? I've always envisioned my body as a tent for my spirit, but lately, I have seriously considered that perhaps this mindset is why I haven't taken as much care with it as I might have, if I had viewed it as something a bit more precious than that.
This temple is the Byodo-In Temple on the island of Oahu. It is a tranquil place where my spirit feels at rest. More and more I am coming to understand that taking care of a temple requires much more than caring for a tent. I'd like mine to be a place of peace, beauty and light.. like this one is.
