Shrines, photos, statues, beads...

Postby rowboat » Sat Sep 24, 2011 10:23 pm

Hello dhamma wheel friends. Please share photos or tell us a bit about your small shrine area, photographs, special book, your Buddha statue. Where did you find that statue? Is there a story behind your amulet? Did you make this?

I have some beads and a photograph of Venerable Luang Pu. I don't know very much about Ven. but there is something about this picture that says arahant to me so whenever I look at him I think, time is precious and life is short - a good reminder throughout the day to be sure!

It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.

Respectfully, I wish to point out that one should not garland the Buddha rupa with beads or flowers. Monks and also eight-preceptors undertake the rule not to wear a garland, so this practice is extended to how we treat the rupa. Some monks may wear a rosary around their neck, but theoretically they are just using a convenient body part to hang the rosary.

Which is, of course, completely meaningless. Just like assuming that old withered guy is an arahant.
