kyoto ryoanji temple

This is my second visit to this legendary temple: the purest expression of Zen. This is by far my favorite temple in Kyoto. I am fascinated by this stone and gravel garden which symbolizes the mountains and the ocean. The stones were arranged so that it is not possible to see the 15 stones at once, no matter where one stands. An ideal place to meditate!
