On the second to last day of visiting Dharma relatives and temples associated with my spiritual ancestry, we visited the temple where Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett spend a few years running a temple in the small village of Hagino in Mie-ken. It is just off Highway 43, 10 km NW of Tsu.

The village Head Man met our bus at the highway on his bike and escorted us through the rice fields to the temple.

  1. Thesae pictures are SO moving. I remember reading “Wild Goose” years ago. I is just how I imgagined it. To sing the “scripture of Great Wisdom” in English is, I think, a fitting tribute to Rev. Master Jiyu.

  2. I have to say that when I first saw this I thought that training had taken on a whole new meaning. At first glance I thought Iain was pushing the bike and any minute he would climb on board and you would jog at his side. With your busy schedule I think you are getting enough exercise. The same thought passed through Brenda’s mind.
