The buddha that Dantachitta had taken in her pocket on our first walk to Federation Square was a very tiny aquamarine rupa that shone different colours depending on the light. Sometimes it looked green or gold or even milky white.
Sitting amongst the crowds of people who use the Fed Square to have lunch, as a meeting place or just as a pause in their busy day,was man she began to talk to. He told her he often went to the square just be around people, to be in the company of other human beings.
He was very happy to take home this little buddha that would bring light into the darkest space.
This buddha was a gift from Leicestershire study group.
