– A New Option for Vacation
By ASC Corespondent
People have many options for where to take their summer vacations, but the wisest is heading to the Holy Mountain with their families for spiritual practice. Those seeking a purification of body and mind and longing for spiritual nourishment will find it in the majestic and sacred Western Shrine on this Holy Mountain.
As early as 6:30 a.m., some people with their families, both the young and old, are strolling down Shrine Road. The picturesque scenery is as beautiful as a wonderland; the miraculous energy of the Holy Mountain nourishes those who come for practice and for enjoyment. For families the purpose is to enable the children to experience the supernatural power of nature, and more importantly, to cultivate their enthusiasm for life and to increase their confidence and courage.
Ms. Tai is one of them. She says that she became much healthier than she used to be. She neither took any medicine nor went to see the doctor in the past three years. Spiritual practice in the Holy Mountain is not merely to improve health conditions, but to foster the patience, benevolence and loving hearts of children.
Being away from the earthly world for a while and cultivating the endurance of hardship—attracts young spiritual practice seekers from all around the world. A preacher from the Western Shrine on the Holy Mountain says that family members will see positive effects to their health and improvements in their characters. They will become open-minded, tolerant, easygoing, and respectful for the old and young. Their family will become harmonious.
Therefore, the practice not only greatly improves practitioners’ physical conditions, but also retrieves their true inner tranquility and purity. They can face their lives and works with peaceful and pleasant minds after the practice. For those who have been living in the restless city life for a long time, the journey of spiritual practice in the embrace of Nature and the Holy Mountain can bring them unsurpassed joy and rejuvenation, and purify their souls as well.
About the Holy Mountain
The Holy Mountain is located at a sacred place in the New York State, unpolluted by the outside world. It came into being many millions of years ago. As time passed by, it became a scenic place with a breathtaking landscape. It was said that some ancient flying dragon with two horns had appeared there. There is a church built in the early twentieth century, as well as a spectacular, magnificent spiritual practice center—the Western Shrine. Inside, dedicated spiritual practitioners cultivate themselves and instruct others in the high teachings of the secret Dharma. The participants who have the chance to practice inside can totally rejuvenate their mind, body and soul, and become younger and more beautiful. However, only those with honest hearts and pure intention can be admitted to enter. Many people comment that they feel extremely pleasant and relaxed once they arrive at the Holy Mountain, or just take a look at the Western Shrine!
The incomparable enchantment of the spiritual journey on the Holy Mountain will soon become popular throughout the world, benefiting humanity’s physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
