The other day we went to the Byodo-In Buddhist temple in Kahaluu. It is a beautiful peaceful setting and is a great place go to relax and meditate.
(Me ringing the bell before entering the temple.)
"The bell is customarily rung before one enters the temple to spread the eternal teachings of Buddha. Ringing the bell will purify the mind of evil spirits and temptation. It is said that ringing this bell will bring you happiness, blessings, and a long life. It is customarily rung before entering the temple."
Nestled into the side of the mountains, surrounded by a zen garden, pond, flowing river, and trees.
