Bravo to all P Islanders!
If you are a Buddhist, you must go to Prince Edward Island, Canada. This place is truly amazing! For instance, would you expect to see prestigious Buddhist monks in a country where the majority of the people are natural blonde hair, redheads, blue/green eyed Caucasian? Would you expect to hear the sacred Buddhist Sutra chanting driven with the wind in this island too.
Without teachers with supreme wisdom, it is impossible to build a community of compassionate and open-minded islanders; impossible to learn and practise Dharma in such a conducive environment; impossible to find true and lifelong practitioners who persevere throughout harsh changing seasons.
Without the guidance from teachers, do you think we have a chance to learn the great teachings of Buddha? Do you think we can grow spiritually in this island, just like a seed will sprout and ultimately grow to blossom as a flower or bear fruit?
The P islanders are ordinary people, just like you and me, but because of their faith and belief in religious harmony, make them respectable and great! Hooray, P island! Bravo to all P islanders!
