how beautiful. I am glad i will see everything with my own eyes soon. I am so looking forward to return to Eleusis! See you soon.

Yes, it does look beautiful.

Aloha Dharmavidya. Beautiful pictures and fond memories. Kakahiaka no, indeed it is morning here and the howling trade winds of yesterday have ceased. Much bird song and gentle reminders of the beauty of our world. Much aloha. Namo Amida Bu

It is very beautiful here, especially at this time of year. Soon all the trees will come into leaf.

Beautiful! NAB

Annette came to visit today. We wandered around the grounds through the proliferation of flowers - purpureum, veronica, daisy, violet, primula, celandine, sloe blossom, cherry blossom, daffodils, dandelion - all quite glorious, either massed together or spread out along the forest paths, nodding their heads in the sunshine. Then we had coffee and cake with cream, sitting in the refectory looking out on the rose garden. All delightful. I feel that it is a great privilege to live and work in such a place - a little pure land on earth. 

Sounds so lovely. Do post more photos for those of us living in the city...

Oh, wow. Thanks :-)

Very beautiful!!!

Thank you to share!  Happy you are in such a beautiful place.

love and hugh

In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…

Wasted

My sons childhood friend was brutally murdered on Friday night. It is hard to believe that it happened. As he left a Birmingham pub a number of young people surrounded him. One of them stabbed him in the heart and he bled to death. He was twenty six years old. I can't get it out of my thoughts, why would any one be that cruel. Why as humans do we do this to each other. I've spent most of the weekend comforting my son, he went on Holliday with Daniel the friend that lost his life, two weeks…
