    Fascinating, especially the sound of the wind and the windows in the Buddha. There’s a metaphor to chew on!

    Intriguing: I experienced a series of sounds and sights before I saw the Buddha and its shuttered window. I’m going to go back again and again to examine this mysterious poem without words.

    Hi KDO–I am not a bit surprised that you made the first qarrtsiluni film. You ought to put a link to this piece in the Wikipedia entry to the Kamakura Amida Buddha. I like the idea that it once was in a temple (a temple inside a temple?) and now is simply a sort of secret temple itself, complete with windows onto the pure land. Took me a couple of looks to make out the hidden word…

    Thanks, Marly – I’ve never messed with Wikipedia, but I might just give it a try. I had to cut the file size for the Flash player (right, Dave?), but I’m glad you got to the hidden words. . . and were willing to take a couple of looks! -k

    I had to cut the file size for the Flash player

    Well, actually that was more of a concession to average internet connection speeds. People can be persuaded to hit “pause” and wait for maybe an additional 30 seconds for a video to download, but I wouldn’t ask them to wait much longer than that. Just last week someone complained about the slow download for one of our audio clips, which was roughly a third of the size of this movie. (Though it’s possible that was some sort of temporary server slowdown.)
