You don’t have to be a Buddhist or even religious to visit this most beautiful temple in Flushing. The architecture and amazing painted and carved artwork alone is worth it. It is the Han Ma Um Zen Center of New York. I was not able to go inside since tomorrow is the birthday of Buddha and the Monks were in the midst of preparation for the celebration tomorrow. I don’t know if non Buddhist are allowed inside but I was told for sure no photographs.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
HAPPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDAH
