... for the goma ritual where many votive offerings are dedicated in front of the Fudo-Mayo-o and special wooden goma sticks are burnt on the alter. We were fortunate to be present for one of these rituals today. We then walked through the beautiful gardens that surround the Temple.

By the end of the afternoon I had never felt more at peace with my life, and my decisions. I realized at that moment that I was so grateful to be here. I am happy to be doing this alone.
