Soto Temple Webcam

Postby PadmaVonSamba » Mon Jan 30, 2012 2:53 am

Would you like to meditate at a carp pond in a Soto temple in Japan?
This cool web cam (live streaming) takes you there, and you can move the camera from your computer:

Here is the website,
Teishoin Temple, Yokohama, Japan:

Remember, if you are in the Western Hemisphere, you'll have to look at this at night (when it is daytime in Japan)
Profile Picture: "The Foaming Monk"
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.
