Finding the Self: The First Chapter

I recently traveled to the Chuang Yen Monastery in Kent, New York. For me, it was one of the first steps in my journey to finding self. The monastery itself is beautiful, and more peaceful than just about anywhere else in New York. The feeling you get when you kneel before the huge Buddha statue, the tallest in the north, can only be described as spiritual. It was this visit that jump started my love of this philosophy of purity, peace, and enlightenment.
