Chaos!

If I were familiar with the other characters, I imagine I'd have more to say about them. :tongue:

Reminds me though how my Vietnamese friends at temple have a good sense of humor -- I was paying close attention to one of the statues set off to the side of the foyer and noticed a Darth Vader figure. I'm pretty sure it was toy, but I didn't pick it up to be sure. I was noticed pondering the matter, and was promptly told "Yeah, we worship him too!"

:rofl:

Isn't that some kind of anime doll, Queen Yasodhara didn't wear a suit jacket or pumps last time I checked :P

No disrespect intended ;)

On another note I had a look through your deviations and I really loved this one:

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako
