Wat Mongkolratanaram

Here are a few more images from the Wat Temple my friends and I visited last month, located in Tampa, FL.. : )

The gardens as well as the temple itself; we were allowed to go inside and hear them chanting (very cool.. -I may upload the video at some pt), not to mention it was beautiful.  Not too sure what the sign says that is on the tree (it may say “Restrooms” for all I can read… kudos to anyone who can enlighten me!)  : )

Lama Love (& wisdom)

More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually.  -Dalai Lama

This pic was taken at a Thai temple in Tampa, FL, that I recently got the chance to visit – beautiful temple & grounds, not to mention delicious Thai food at their Sunday market!  : 9  Recommended for anyone in the area.
