Buddhist temple immersion Weiterswiller

We spent a wonderful day at the Weiterswiller Buddhist temple. We were warmly welcomed by the nome Kankyo, a bright and bubbly person. The place is sublime, respects nature and is in tune with the positive vibrations of the inhabitants. The introduction to meditation reinforced our desire to develop this practice on a daily basis. A wonderful experience.
