Watering the Zendo Garden

Just got back from watering the garden at the Empty Hand Zen Center.  Not sure how useful it was given that it's supposed to rain this evening, but I very much enjoyed it and all the flowers and bodhisattvas looked so beautiful with their drops of water. 


Jizo Bodhisattva

Jizo (Kamakura period,1185-1333)


I went to the Met yesterday to see the painted palm-leaf folios of the Prajnaparamita Sutra.  They were exquisite, but they wouldn't let me take pictures.  I was, however, able to photograph several of my favorite pieces from the permanent collection, e.g. the larger than life-sized, wooden Jizo Bodhisattva with his pilgrim's staff and bright jewel of Dharma truth.
