Tenporin temple

This is Tenporin temple. Inside of this temple is a huge Amida Budda about 16ft tall. You can only see the upper body of the statue and it is guarded by the fence, so that you cannot touch it. There is a rope hanging from the hand of the statue and by holding that rope is equivalent of touching the Amida’s hand. There also is a device called Tenporin it is said that spinning it once will have same effect as chanting 10,000 times. This is a very nice place to meditate. I also enjoyed watching other people meditating.

Wow Michelle that must absolutely awe-inspiring. I can't even imagine what kind of energy it must generate. And the Tenporin sounds similar to a Tibetan prayer wheel. I suppose there's no photographing Amida either (?).
