The mountain of White Clouds

   A few years ago, when I was visiting the Buddhist monk d-r He Xiaorong in Hunan Province in China, together with her we made a trip to the Mountain of White Clouds Bai Yun Shan 白云山.
   On the top of the mountain there is an abandoned Taoist monastery. The air there is very unusual - saturated with pure energy and lots of negative ions. Even if you don't do meditation, the feeling is as if you are in meditation - it's full of energy there!

As John Muir says: 
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. 
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. 
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, 
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”
