It is hard to describe the perfection of the autumn air in Kyoto this time of year! The air was crisp, the sun was golden and warm. The leaves were green and red and orange and yellow. It was lovely! Please enjoy this photo gallery – I hope makes you feel as if you are walking down the streets of Kyoto!

Making the prayerful climb to Kurama-dera

Oh, Sonten,

Beautiful as the Moon, Warm as the Sun, Powerful as the Earth,

Bestow your blessing upon us to uplift mankind and increase our riches and glory.

In this holy place, grant that peace may defeat discord, unselfishness may conquer greed, sincere words may overcome deceit, and that respect may surmount insults.

Fill our hearts with joy, uplift our spirits, and fill our bodies with glory.

Sonten, Great Lord of the Universe, Great Light, Great Mover, bestow upon us who gather to worship you, upon those who strive to touch your heart, a new strength and glorious light.
