Golden Hall at Kofukuji Rebuilt

After 301 years. Something to be said for long institutional memories.

Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
-Ayacana Sutta

And hard-nosed determination :) What a fantastic building- its got to feel great walking into a hall like that, the culmination of so much effort for so long.
