Many have already contributed to the purchase of Roshi's birthday gift, a calligraphic energy portrait by Alok Hsu Kwang-han. Roshi has requested that in lieu of personal gifts, any further donations go toward the construction of a bamboo fence and Torii gate that will be built between the parking lot and the tsukubai and pond. This gate will become the entryway to Hoen-ji's Garden of Serenity.
