I'll also add that I started this trip in Hong Kong and was able to attend, thanks to Ven. Huifeng, a talk by Ven. Ajahm Brahm.

However, before the talk we experienced life as mice in the man-made maze that is that train station beside Poly Uni. in Hong Kong. :rolleye:

That was also quite educational and insightful. Ajahm Brahm was talking about tales of the supernatural at a science university. :smile:

He's a powerful speaker in real life. He knows how to tell stories and teach dharma very very well.

Presently in Guangzhou, China.

I visited Liurong Temple 六榕寺 this afternoon. As the story goes Chan Patriarch Huineng once resided there.

I'll post photos when I have the chance.

A few days ago I returned to Hong Kong and fortunately had the chance to have coffee with Venerable Huifeng again. Good dharma talk at Starbucks. :smile:

I've decided to postpone my return to Japan given the present circumstances there. I had thought it would be resolved before March 24th when I'm scheduled to fly back to Tokyo, but even now it continues. Worsens actually. Now they're saying the spinach and melt from the area around Fukushima has been contaminated with radiation. Some embassies are also advising citizens to leave Tokyo if they can. France is outright scared.

So, my visa is good until mid-April and I have the time, so I will visit around China. I had planned to come back anyway maybe during the summer, but now is just as good. I had originally just planned on Guangzhou and then back to Hong Kong, but I have a friend offering free floor space in Shanghai. I plan to visit Hangzhou, the old capital of the Song Dynasty among other places. If I'm really bold I'll go to Wutaishan, but we'll see about that. In any case, I will continue my pilgrimage and pray for all sentient beings at temples. I quite like Chinese temples except for those incense the size of rockets that devotees like to burn as offerings. The larger the incense, the more merit I guess...

My trip has certainly been eventful. It is going to be a lot longer than I had planned it out to be. From Bodh Gaya in India to Lumbini and Boudha Stupa in Nepal and Liurong Temple in South China -- going many places, meeting many people and visiting countless holy sites. Fortunately I have many generous friends both new and old who graciously provide for this pilgrim. :smile:

Thanks for sharing these photos. I was planning a vacation to India and then to visit friends in the US for 2010 - but ended up returning to England instead, postponing my vacation for some years. It is nice to see REAL photos rather than guide book ones !! :namaste:
