Shikoku Pilgrimage

Shikoku Island Japan
Good day dear friends,

As you maybe know I have a daily haiku meme at: Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and on that weblog we are now on a pilgrimage along the 88 temples of the Shikoku Temples Trail founded by Kobo Daishi (774-835). Today we are arriving at Temple 38, Kongofukuji, devoted to Senju Kannon the Boddhisatsva of the World, Mother of Humankind, and compassion.

Well ... I hope you did like the read and maybe you will visit Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and be part of this pilgrimage yourself. You're welcome to visit and share.

Namaste

I myself find it difficult to pray anything other than silent prayers...
