AJ's Buddhas - [ New Picture Added!! ]

Postby Still Searching » Mon Dec 24, 2012 11:22 pm

I have many Buddha statues/ornaments, I will take some pictures and share them with you all after Christmas, possibly the 26th or the 27th so keep looking back at this thread for updates.

Here is 2 of them so far.
It's a candle holder with Buddha meditating next to a lotus flower

This one is made out of wood (dunno what kind)

I will upload more soon after Christmas.
I'm really sorry the pictures are so small and not good quality, I'll try and make them larger & look better when I get more time.

Enjoy!

Nice photo, AJ!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Particularly like the second
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
