we've recently had two 'buddha-events': our friend Shonen, buddhist nun, has visited from japan, and within the same week, a friend has asked us to keep this wooden buddha in our home while he travels.
this is a very beautiful buddha, with truly sacred energy, something that can be seen and felt. i'm sure it must be from some temple somewhere, and i feel it needs very special nurture. bela, always attracted to the sacred, is doing his part to make the buddha feel worshipped and at home.
