Traveling with Dharma-friends up through Seattle to Vancouver for the Inauguration of Gold Buddha Monastery. We are staying with Dharma Master Heng Lai at Snow Mountain Monastery near Index, Washington. A group of forty folks from Gold Mountain in San Francisco, joined with thirty people from Berkeley for a big photo beneath the white Guan Yin image.
The Berkeley friends took a group photo with Dharma Master Lai.
We also visited with the 80-year old Vietnamese monk Master Ming Zhao, of Vietnam Temple in Seattle. Master Ming Zhao has been a Dharma friend of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas for a decade.
