Autumn leaves: Engaku-ji

Autumn leaves: Engaku-ji

The old stone statues of Kannon Bosatsu (Kannon Bodhisattva) are calmly bathed in the oblique rays of the afternoon sun. 

The vivid yellow and red leaves of the trees around this garden are shining radiantly like brilliant gold ornaments to dedicate their splendor to these deities of great compassion and mercy.

In the profound silence of this sacred place, the small moss-covered images of Kannon Bosatsu are everlastingly praying that the souls of all living things are saved from their sufferings and pains.
