before going to san francisco, i was expecting to see one of the most irreligious cities in the us. but by seeing the expansion of buddhism, zen, and other east asian religions there, i end up with a principle which i named "conservation of religion".
religion cannot be destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space, and changed into different types of religion.
it seems that spirituality is one of the basic needs of human being.
