The talk will describe the monument, estimated to be 1,200 years old, and outline some of the more recent interpretations of its meaning, especially the ways its designers incorporated beliefs current in Chinese Buddhism at the time.

2 CLARIFICATIONS from seller:

Lynn: we're so glad you enjoyed your visit.
We do need to make two clarifications:
1)Although, the house IS available furnished, the listing price of $655,00 does NOT include the furnishings
2) High-speed internet IS available via Sprint DSL and in the near future through the CVEC high-speed internet over the power lines - much telecommuting has occurred in the mountain hide-away; work's never been so painless:)
Thanks for allowing these clarifications.
