  • Simply cat Temple, welcomed by a lot of cat. It's very original, Nora? It was the lie to plump and very bland has. Their hair is beautiful. Also managed properly. During the lecture for the bus to set aside was hot? Sneak CAT had got so worried about driver. (Lol) or under the car when you leave, or start very slowly, was careful. Has a really bland. This sermon and Zazen experience we also. Experience Zazen, basi was! I thought of, but completely without the spoken about Zen breathing method and its advantages. Zen also useful in day to day life in the showers. Something neat. Let's talk about. Old temples like a bit disappointing, the new temple is? , Including the sermon and the Zen experience, cat and touch, it was a good experience.

  • Original travel is not a temple, but many are protected through the good offices of the head priest of generous cat. Originally the temple priest who trained for so earnestly immersed in cat, do not interfere with his training. Still lot of cats in your environment and are surprised by the. Like cats like people coming from around the country at the parking lot just outside number. Some inconsiderate people abandoned cats come and know the words. Temple here is temple for the throwing away cat is not. Let's obey minimum manner. Like our cat is a cat-lover said here. You want to visit again.
