On the subject of questionable use of depictions of the Buddha....
There's actually a marijuana paraphernalia dispensary down the street from where I live in Whitby, Canada, that is called "The Laughing Buddha", which has a large picture on its door of a Chinese-style "heavy" Maitreya depicted taking a hit off a bong, seeming very jolly as he does so.
I'm not offended by much but I'll admit I did a double-take there.
Bhagavā arahaṃ sammasāmbuddho:
Svākkhāto yena bhagavatā dhammo / Supaṭipanno yassa bhagavato sāvakasaṅgho
Tammayaṃ bhagavantaṃ sadhammaṃ sasaṅghaṃ / Imehi sakkārehi yathārahaṃ āropitehi abhipūjayāma. (Dedication of Offerings)
I watch the ripples change in size and never leave the stream of warm impermanence.
And so the days, they float through my eyes, but still the days, they seem the same.
And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds are immune to your consultations.
They're quite aware of what they're going through: changes. (Bowie)
