Sakura blossoms in Tenryu-ji (Kyoto)

The white blossoms of Sakura were blooming modestly in the "Sogen-chi" pond garden of Tenryu-ji.

Superb tablou! Parca simt mirosul apei si al padurii cu pamantul reavan de primavara,in imaginatie am si florile padurilor noastre:ghiocei,si viorele, poate voi nu le aveti...As vrea sa am o casa pe marginea acestui râu sau la poalele padurii.Eh,voi avea pe Noul Pamant, Acolo unde Isus a plecat sa ni le pregateasca...

Thank you for your comment, which is a great encouragement to me.

This pond garden is designed to demonstrate the spiritual landscape of Buddhistic enlightenment.

Every night, the trainee monks of this zen temple sit and meditate facing this peaceful and beautiful garden.
