The owner of the company, Joost and his wife Anouk came to visit my place here in Las Vegas today. And they delivered some plush buddhas to us.

When I saw this I couldn't help thinking, "Oh no!"

There have been basically two opinions expressed in this thread, and I am on the side of, ---drumroll---both!!! Luckily, I don't have the money to buy one at this time. So, it is saving me the dilemma of whether to purchase one or not. Think I would rather eat instead! If I had the money, I might be tempted to buy one of the Tibetan gold ones for my apartment :) I have to admit they make me smile and I am all for smiling!

I haven't read the thread but I'm guessing the opinions run along the lines of "this is great" vs. "this is disrespectful". Is this basically the TLDR version or am I mistaken?

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.
