Peace Pagoda, Leverett, MA

It was a gorgeous day and i went out to this place called peace pagoda in leverett, MA - i had been meaning to go there for a long time and finally i made the pilgrimage.
boy was it worth it - so peaceful up there, and though there were quite a few people it was absolute silence, only the wind. a feeling of calm washes over you once you get up there. a nice little zen garden, a pond with fishes, it had it all.
then this thing about stone piles - i saw a few of them and googled about them later, apparently its a zen thing, but what's fascinating about it is that all zen gardens have as many stones (or more) as plants - and this is partly because the philosophy does not have a sharp distinction between animate and inanimate objects in the world. life is not necessarily organic - a pebble that captures your attention and talks to your subconscious, is i would say more alive than a mosquito on the wall.
