A Bodhidharma statue in Kencho-ji

Bodhidharma is the legendary Zen master who is believed to be the founder of the Zen sect.

This statue was previously placed in front of the Zen lecture hall (Hatto) and was moved to this location.

The green bamboo grove and the clear blue sky of summer remarkably suited this radiant image of Bodhidharma.
