Mandala #400 – Bomb Store Graffiti

To Dogen, mind was at once knowledge and reality, at once the knowing subject and the known object, yet is transcended them both at the same time. In this nondual conception of mind, what one knew was what one was – and ontology, epistemology, and soteriology were inseparably united.

Hee-Jin Kim, 2000

  1. Nothing like inserting a good dose of Dogen into the end-of-the-year craziness. But what’s bomb store? Whatever it is, this is a beauty. Earthy and brainy at the same time, if that makes sense. πŸ™‚

    1. Very glad you appreciated this, Lynn.

      This particular bomb store was a former slate quarry that was re-purposed as a WWII munitions-storage facility.

      I have written a little about its history here:

      Glyn Rhonwy Quarry

      and there are more photos from a previous visit here (it seems that at some point in the last 12 years WordPress has seen fit to break my custom scrollable panoramic image):

      Llanberis Bomb Store

      And you might be able to spot the mandala’s source material in this one:
