I started Rohatsu Week (see Rohatsu) with three full bows at the main altar of the Thien Mu pagoda in Hue. The young monk in the picture is getting ready to ring the large bell every time I bow. Powerful way to start this week of intensive practice.

Time passes like an arrow. It waits for no one.
Exert yourself. Exhaust yourself.
