這是三界村幾戶村民多少年以來的保護神。根據當地村民的講法,從前這裡每到了夜晚,就會有一簇一簇的星火,微微泛著綠光,在不同地點出現;漸漸的,星火會合為一,隨後驟然消失於空中。

這種景象,據說不少的村民都見過,也有人好奇走近,但什麼也看不到,只見到一塊大石頭。漸漸的,就有居民對此石頭膜拜,說是很靈感,於是村民就蓋了這座小小的土地公廟。

聖嚴法師發了一個願:待法鼓山落成以後,就把土地公菩薩升格為「山神」,將土地公廟翻修成「山神廟」。當時有一位李枝河居士發心替我駕車,我問他能不能發心,他二話不說就接下這樁護持的功德。就這樣,我們把土地公廟翻修成山神廟,規模比原來大一些。

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
