As soon as I straighten up my living room I'm going to post my rupa.
I love looking at it throughout the day. It's the one I got that's 22" high (I think-maybe 29").

rule 1 - don't get him drunk then give him a sword sending him off to a busy area!
rule 2 - you need a rule 2? just stick with rule 1! :tongue:
although I am more than sure our pastafarian monk wouldn't do, or get caught up in that! :twothumbsup:

beautiful! i love the way the thai people adorn their statues! in america you rarely see a statue adorned with non-statue items (except buddhist ones from time to time).

The most beautiful "Buddhist monk" picture I've seen in quite awhile.

"I cannot tell
A small part of the splendid lore which broke
From Buddha's lips: I am a late-come scribe
Who love the Master and his love of men,
And tell this legend, knowing he was wise,
But have not wit to speak beyond the books
And time hath blurred their script and ancient sense,
Which once was new and mighty, moving all.
A little of that large discourse I know
Which Buddha spake on the soft Indian eve...

While our Lord taught, and, while he taught, who heard --
Though he were stranger in the land, or slave,
High caste or low, come of the Aryan blood,
Or Mlech or Jungle-dweller -- seemed to hear
What tongue his fellows talked. Nay, outside those
Who crowded by the river, great and small,
The birds and beasts and creeping things -- 'tis writ --
Had sense of Buddha's vast embracing love
And took the promise of his piteous speech;
So that their lives -- prisoned in shape of ape,
Tiger, or deer, shagged bear, jackal, or wolf,
Foul-feeding kite, pearled dove, or peacock gemmed.
Squat toad, or speckled serpent, lizard, bat;
Yea, or of fish fanning the river-waves --
Touched meekly at the skirts of brotherhood..."-
Sir Edwin Arnold
Image

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "
