Photo Of The Day – Statue of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva on Mt. Emei

Statue of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva on top of Mt. Emei

Statue of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva on top of Mt. Emei, highest of the four sacred Buddhist Mountains of China according to Wikipedia.  Our plan was to climb about two-thirds of the way up and spend the night in a monastery, but we made the climb in a single day and were rewarded by an overnight stay in the meteorological station at the top and a sunrise that, quite frankly, could have been better.  It was a great experience with a great group of people!
