nice,
nothing so ellaborate for me! I have some shelves I have my Suttas and some comentaries on, and some pictres of me with or monks on their own.


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

you guys gotta post yours too!!!

the dhammawheel flags is from thailand, most of the altar is from thailand cept for the fake insence is korean, the bodhidharma is japanese and the lotus lights are chinese oh and the kata wrapped around the "main" buddha is tibetan, it was wrapped around my wife by the priest when she married us and i think she said given to her by the dalai lama

this altar didnt happen over night , its took years of finding pieces, the main buddha was a bday gift, etc. and theres still i think about 4 more things it needs...

Wonderful shrine!

I'll post mine whenever I get my digital camera fixed, but a brief description: a small rectangular bookcase, about the size of an end table, w/ two shelves inside. One shelf houses the Dhamma texts and the other is for binders of printouts and various candles and incense sticks. The top of the shrine has two incense burners, a very small glass vase for flower offerings, and a fired bronze Buddha statue from Thailand raised up on a wooden block above the rest. It's very basic and utilitarian.

This is an ornamental Buddha my (Jewish) grandmother owned, I find it is a good object of meditation though. Keep it in a good place for meditating :smile:

acinteyyo,

That's not so "little" :tongue: Beautiful corner and nice painting!

Santeri,

Nice collection of ajahns on your altar. Are they Thai forest tradition?
