The Ch’an Master Visits to Worship

Green Onions and Ginger in the Garden

The ancient temple – with its gurgling water – is free and secluded. Transcend the Lotus Pond and enter the Buddha Realm.

Rivers and streams flow over the mountain rocks, as the moon gracefully descends into the cloudy covered, and misty water.

A chance encounter at the pagoda revealed the Bodhi Tree, whilst the Lotus Flowers were found under the bridge.

Arriving at the Ch’an Temple to discuss the Dharma, this old monk thought it correct to prepare the tea.

拜访禅师

葱姜园子/文

闲来古寺僻喧哗,绕过荷塘入佛家。

石涧溪流翻水浪,云河月落袅烟霞。

塔前巧遇菩提树,桥下相逢菡萏花。

刚到禅房言拜访,老僧清酌备名茶。
