The Next Month
This is the next installment of my Jogyesa drawings. I'm hoping these drawings are going to bring me a lot of Karma. I can feel it already. Last time I was in Seoul, Yun came with me. The headmaster of the Temple wanted to meet her. He took us out to dinner. It was a restaurant that only served Buddhist cuisine. We had a fourteen course meal. Do-mun only speaks Korean so Yun had to translate. He described in great detail every course that was brought out. Buddhists don't eat meat so we were served a lot of exotic plants and mushrooms. Some things we ate were moss and fungus that grows on rocks and has to be peeled off. Everything was delicious and filling. I was stuffed. We were even served a liqueur that was made from pine needles. It was non-alcoholic because Buddhists don't drink. I think I got a little drunk from it though. The restaurant was across from the Temple. They even had some photos showing Richard Gere eating there. It was quite a unique experience.
