Here is the main altar at the Hermitage. It is a work-in-progress. I tried to put up a picture hook to hang the photo of Rev. Master Jiyu but bent a few nails on this 200-year old stone wall and will have to wait until someone happens by with an electric drill. Happily there was already a nail in the wall where I wanted to hang the other picture over the altar.
Work in progress is a good way to describe sitting Buddha Hermitage, and my life here. Nothing is in its final perfect state, yet all is complete as it is.
