Statues of the 18 Luohan

October 14, 2006 - Chuang Yen Monastery, Carmel, New York. I went with my sister-in-law's family to this Pure Land temple in upstate. I didn't know it was a Pure Land temple until we got up there. Not that I think the delineations between different sects of Buddhism make too much of difference. What is Buddhism, after all, but nothing? Just a label. And labeling it Pure Land is supposed to mean something different from labeling it Zen?
