Mountaintop Shala

Garden in the center of the Buddhist Shala where we stayed with monks and nuns. The garden was pristine and carefully maintained with the gentle love of these gentle souls. Buddhism in Japan is a fascinating study. The thoughtful and respectful combination of virtues make even warfare a most respectable act, so the peaceful effect on gardens absolutely blew my mind.
