yawares,

You are correct about the final picture. It is Diana Rigg, who played Emma Peel in the Avengers. I think she is beautiful in a typically English kind of way. I saw her acting on stage about four years ago, when she was about seventy. All beauty passes!

Dear Sam Vara,
I think Diana Riggs was beautiful/talented...most of my favorite movie stars: Harrison Ford, Richard Gere, Sharon Stone, Sandra Bullock, Bruce Willis etc. are getting old now....RUPA ANICCA.

Please give them credits ..if they don't love Buddhas why they donate so much money to Buddhist temples and annouce that they are Buddhists!!...I'm sure these celebrities will meet our future Buddha next next next life and they might be the new great upasaka/upasikas just like Citta the millionaire, Visakha, Anadapindika, Sirima, Ambika, King Ajatsattu, King Asoka etc.

I think the middle photo is Hayley Mills, John Mills daughter and who became famous in the role of Pollyanna in about 1960.

What about Aung San Su Chi, probably the most famous Buddhist in the world, male or female, and what a role model for the rest of us.

Probably the most famous Buddhist after HH the Dalai Lama. But yes, a wonderful role model!

HHDL Ben? I was thinking of Stephen Batchelor... :lol:
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
