喜马拉雅中心门口种了一片水稻,又不知从哪里移来一座亭子。我觉得很好看。可惜就是亭子上的灯笼,未免欠缺几缕古风。

极乐国土,七重栏楯,七重罗网,七重行树,皆是四宝周匝围绕……有七宝池,八功德水,充满其中,池底纯以金沙布地。四边阶道,金、银、琉璃、玻璃合成。上有楼阁,亦以金、银、琉璃、玻璃、砗磲、赤珠、玛瑙而严饰之。池中莲花大如车轮,青色青光、黄色黄光、赤色赤光、白色白光,微妙香洁。彼佛国土,常作天乐。黄金为地。彼佛国土,微风吹动诸宝行树,及宝罗网,出微妙音,譬如百千种乐,同时俱作。彼国常有种种奇妙杂色之鸟:白鹤、孔雀、鹦鹉、舍利、迦陵频伽、共命之鸟。是诸众鸟,昼夜六时,出和雅音。其音演畅五根、五力、七菩提分、八圣道分,如是等法。其土众生,闻是音已,皆悉念佛、念法、念僧。昼夜六时,雨天曼陀罗华。其土众生,常以清旦,各以衣祴盛众妙华,供养他方十万亿佛,即以食时,还到本国,饭食经行。其佛国土,成就如是功德庄严。

"When my children are settled, I am going to retire and devote more time to my meditation. Every time you meditate, you get a little further from the world. You become more and more like the lotus, which grows in the water, but never touches the water.""So what’s the benefit of withdrawing from the world?""Meditation is like a glass of juice. I can describe the glass of juice to you. But you’re not going to know the glass of juice until you taste it."
(Jammu, India)
