    The Los Angeles Temple feels like an oasis of peace in the midst of hectic traffic and city bustle. Although only qualified members of the Church can enter the temple, there is an excellent visitors center on site which has many hands-on displays, visuals, videos, etc. Everyone is welcome to spend time at the visitors center or to stroll the well-maintained grounds.
    Inside the Temple itself are beautiful wall murals and other paintings that cause one to reflect upon God and His love for us.

    After our short walk across Alameda St. from Union Station, we always stop and admire this beautiful church as we pass by. It's situated just a few steps from the entrance to Olvera Street in El Pueblo de Los Angeles. We were surprised that is isn't a Catholic Church but is Methodist. The Spanish style architecture is really stunning, and the church is well-maintained.

    It’s amazing that I never knew of this monastery until I saw an ad for their baked goods. The nuns that live there bake to subsidize the monastery. I had emailed to find out if their pumpkin bread and candies could be purchased in person. I received lovely notes that yes, I could. I was told that we could get a tour of the monastery if we came, but that was not the case. We took a glimpse of their chapel. A handful of people were there praying, and we did not enter. The gift shop is full of religious gifts…& what we went for. The woman who was working in the shop told us 6 nuns of various ages live there. And we were told only one knows how to make their marmels…chocolate covered marshmallow with some caramel. I bought some and the are light and delicious. Looking for locally made yummy edibles that make a difference. Visit. Their boxes of peanut brittle will be perfect for holiday gifts.

    Magnificent temple in the heart of Los Angeles. Was so fortunate to have been invited to a family event. At one time, there were tours here and it would be so totally worth the visit. Absolutely fantastic architecture. Stained glass windows are incredible.

    When visitors visiting Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, a lot of time many visitors focus on food, gifts, and excitement of being in an ethnic community. In fact, Little Tokyo is more complete as an "ethnic" community. Other than the nicely designed plaza filled with with restaurants and stores,Little Tokyo also include indoor parking, community center, and community theater. The Koyasan Buddhist Temple is part of the community. Visitors can see that people come to the place to worship, not just to visit. The temple adds another dimension to the community. It is located on 1st street and is tugged in behind the historic buildings on 1st Street, Just walk in to visit while taking a break from visiting the plaza or eating at a restaurant in the area. It is a nice place to give visitors a calm and relax atmosphere.

    Never have I experienced so much energy and enthusiasm (and humor) blended with a true love of Christ, empathy for lost souls wallowing in depths if despair and an innate desire to offer second chances.

    Let me share a taste of this delicious message...actually it is just a partial taste test...even so, quite flavorful!

    What is your greatest weakness?
    Christ says...I Am with you through the end of the ages.

    Remember:
    When I am weak, then I become strong.

    There is always a break through at the end of a transition. It may be delayed but while you are delayed you are growing stronger inside.

    Learn something while you are in transition. Embrace the season of transition. So you are ready for breaking through the gates - transition that is taking you somewhere.

    In between the annointing of your life to the appointment of your life.

    Thoughts:
    Embrace Learning and challenge
    Self control brings you to a new place
    Dont become complacement
    Step out of the box

    The architecture is spectacular. The chapel, in particular, just takes your breath away, If you see a concert there, grab tickets. The acoustics are fabulous in the chapel and the main sanctuary. Avoid the EV charger in the parking garage, it hits you at double the going rate, almost like buying gas!

    1- check calendar section of web site and pick a scheduled zazen period and/or lecture
    2- arrive 30 mins early to stroll the small but lovely grounds and enjoy the many hidden corners, various sculptures, fine redwoods.... and quiet
    3- if it feels right, return and repeat......
