  • Byodo In Temple – The Perfect Byodo In Temple – The Perfect Place to Spend a Day in Serenity at Oahu

    • From: CatherineWatson
    • Description:

       

      byodo in templeLast month I went to the Hawaiian Island Oahu with a couple of my friends and it was one of my best summer vacations ever. Our Oahu trip started with a lot of activity. We toured the historic Pearl Harbor, tried our hands at snorkeling in North shore and also visited the Polynesian Culture Center which provided us a deeper insight into Polynesian culture. It was educational and entertaining at the same time.

       

      After all the excitement and activities, we wanted to experience something different, something to pacify our soul and mind in Hawaii. Our friendly chauffeur of Hawaii Taxi and Shuttle Service suggested us to visit Byodo-In Temple, situated at the foot of Koolau Mountain in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. We googled it to get more information. When we found out that the temple had been featured in ABC’s Emmy Award Winning drama series LOST, as the home of Korean woman Sun’s father, our excitement just doubled. We could not hold ourselves and we visited Byodo-In the very next day.

       

      Some highlights of our Byodo-In Temple visit:

       

      Ringing the Bon-Sho

      Bon- shoAfter a drive through a cemetery, we reached the premises of the temple. As soon as we set foot inside the area of the temple, we could not help but ring the massive three-ton brass bell called Bon-sho. Turns out, apparently, it is customary to ring the bell before entering the temple to purify your mind off of evil spirits. We didn’t know that.

      Close to the bell there was a small donation box where we donated few pennies. Our small effort in contributing to the temple, which in fact helps maintain its grandeur.

       

      Capturing the beauty of Byodo In Temple:

      BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OF BYODO IN TEMPLEByodo-In is truly a hidden gem of Oahu tucked away behind the valley of temples cemetery. The landscaped grounds, postcard perfect scenes and landmarks under the deep lush green hills are so awe inspiring that we could not resist ourselves and took hundreds of photographs. It was our way of trying to capture a bit of the peacefulness and natural beauty that the temple offers.

       

      Praying to the Amida Buddha

      Amida BuddhaThe main attraction of the temple is 9 feet tall, gold lacquer painted, wood carved statue of Amida/Lotus Buddha inside the Phoenix hall. This big statue is surrounded by a series of other small statues of Boddhisattvas (the enlightened beings).

      We had to take off our shoes in order to enter the hall where devotees were praying in front of the statue. They were offering flowers and burning incense to the Amida Buddha. I also got a chance to offer some flowers to the amazingly peaceful looking Amida Buddha.

       

      Enjoying with the Nature’s Critters:

      WILD LIFE OF BYODO IN TEMPLEIn the temple premises, we saw peacocks and black swans roaming in the garden grounds and turtles lounging beside the pond. The ponds of temple are filled with the Japanese fish, Koi. We purchased some fish food from the gift shop and fed them. The gift shop also had some cool Japanese souvenir which I wanted to buy but couldn’t afford it.

       

       

      After wandering around the temple for an hour, we rested in a Meditation House. The atmosphere was so serene that I could literally feel my inner soul. I have seriously never felt so peaceful in my entire life. I wanted to stay there for the whole day but my friends did not let me do that.


      Byodo-In is a perfect spiritual destination to spend a peaceful day, soaking in nature away from the bustling areas of Oahu. Parking is free and it only cost $3 to explore this hidden gem. So, don’t forget to visit this place on your Oahu tour. You will simply find inner peace here.
