Lantern and temple wall

March 25 – Longhua Monastery, Shanghai

When I was in Sydney, Australia, I saw a Buddha head constructed from ashes collected at this monastery.

Amazed at the degree of devotion, I made a pilgrimage; I want to cultivate this capacity for composure and stillness.

I see beauty in this place/time and yet, I remain impatiently me! ~ a lantern tugging at a tether.
