The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Marathon Monks

I posted before about the Marathon Monks of Mt. Hiei. They are members of the Tendai branch of Buddhism that have a particular and arduous form of practice.

I came across a short documentary about them on YouTube. Enjoy
