In the courtyard

Lingyin Temple

In the back of LingYin Temple, a courtyard completely free of crowds and incense smoke. A nice quiet place. I believe there are still monks who live here - we passed by what I believe to be the classrooms and private prayer halls. How do you balance faith and commercial tourism? The way these modern monks hire themselves out is shameful.
