Welcome to Temple Tales by me, James Baquet, AKA The Temple Guy, a longtime teacher and pilgrim, now sharing my knowledge and experience of temples and Buddhism.
Camera and notebook in hand, I have visited over 700 temples, shrines, and sites of religious and historical significance in Japan and China, as well as the American Southwest, California and Baja California; Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Macau; and now, increasingly, in my country of residence, the Philippines. (Read more about me than anyone would ever want to know in this post.)
Here are some genuine responses to the earliest episodes of the Newsletter and Podcast:
You have had quite a life...
