a Buddhist temple

i've always wanted to visit the Buddhist temple here in Adelaide at Wingfield. i was invited to accompany Lan in our lunch hour today . a short drive away from work and what a gorgeous experience. i have visited the Hare Krishna temple here in Adelaide which was a lovely experience too. of course it's not everyone's cup of tea. the temple is gorgeous, there is a large enclosure in the front garden housing the happy Buddha. Lan lit incense and prayed to Quan Yin and placed incense around the garden and temple in four locations praying each time. the inside is truly something to behold. i've been to the Greek cathedral in Adelaide and that's a beautiful church too. i will return to the temple as it's something i'd like to experience again as it's such a peaceful place, i guess all churches/temples are, or at least they are supposed to be. the afternoon dragged today for no particular reason. i had a fairly easy day. not too much to do. sad day in that Jackie came in for her last day before maternity leave. she's been on annual leave for two weeks and in due very soon. she's expecting a baby girl. we have not been told her name yet. that bit is a surprise.


  1. They are such peaceful, and uplifting places. I have done some Buddhist courses at the Applecross temple here in Perth (a looong time ago), and my mother was Buddhist before she converted to marry my dad.

    A very forgiving faith.

    Hope all is going well for you,



  2. I have never ventured into a Buddhist Temple but they do look amazing..We are very privledged to have some beautiful churches here in Adelaide....
    Hope life has been treating you well and that you are coping with this wintery weather of ours...


thanks for visiting. :)
