I found this Vairocana (Cosmic Buddha) Marimokkori on my student's desk today. At first I was like "how sacrilege," but actually, a lot of buddhist deities are depicted with boners, so it's not so out of place.
This may be the most beautiful Shrine i have ever seen. We visited it after hanami in saijo.
Look who it is!!! Richard came to visit with his fiance! Emily and I were honored.
My new friend Daifuku.
Keiran is in town! We hiked up to temple #60.
