Kathy Li, Master Wang’s USA desciple kindly purchased and provided tour guide type radio transmitter and receiving equipment to make English translation simply and invisibly available to non Manadarin speakers. A variety of translators including Ian Johnson, a Canadian living in Beigin, BK Wee from Singapore (and his delightful daughter) as well as Kathy herself filled the translator’s role. In all 4 Westerners ( 3 Russians and myself benefiitted from this essential service. Thank you Kathy, Ian and the Wees.

The sacred mountain environment, the precious temple energy, the food and of course the presence of Master Wang added up to a fantastic experience.

Master Wang stood in the rain with us as we waited for the bus to drive down the mountain on the final day.
