Trip to a Temple…

I think in this modern age all to frequently we have a tendency to neglect our spirituality. While my background is Christian I do feel that I have learned so many things from other teachings that have helped to round out my view of this world. There are so many wonderful ideas I have gleaned from the Buddhist philosophy and I really do enjoy their temples and architecture. In fact there is a temple a few miles away from my house which I like to visit. It’s so quiet and peaceful. I thought I would  share some pictures of the outside of the actual temple, as respectfully photography is not permitted inside.

If you are ever in Southern California and want to visit the Hsi Lai Temple, it’s really nice and not too crowded…

 

The outer gate which greets its visitors.

 

 

Hanging art object, not quite sure what it is, seemed pretty...

 

Hanging fish art....

 

I'm not even going to guess...but I know it has something to do with dragons...

Hmm....Cart with Army Dude on it....

 

Buddha, he always seems to be smiling, which makes me smile too...
