Kyoto is an amazing place. Some of the smaller temples and shrines you could walk right past and not realize it was even there. The name of this Zen temple, “Komyo”, consists of two kanji characters; ”ko” – light of the sun and “myo” – light of the moon or stars. When combined, these mean the light given off from the body of Buddha, or wisdom / mercy of Buddha.
It was very peaceful to sit there and look out into the garden at its complex simplicity.
