Red Ginger

Another ornamental plant here in the tropics is red ginger. Native to Malaysia, it is now found all over the world. It's a great cut flower, and is often found in Hawaiian flower arrangements. This plant does not provide an edible ginger root; it is simply a beautiful flower.

Buddhism used to be found only in Asia. It was introduced to the West in 1893 at the Parliament of World Religions. Now it can found, if not everywhere, almost everywhere.

Our Western culture has been transplanted in many places all over the world, many times to ill effect.

What is it that we want to to transplant? What do we want to ripple out from our lives? Stress? Or happiness?

It's your decision.
