A new friend from Toowoomba offered to hand on one of the tiny Buddhas I carry with me.
In her words………
“I chose this Buddha for my friend for its particular visual beauty and the fact that it had a rectangular back. The back gave the feeling of strength and support.
My friend and I have been mutually supportive of each other through some challenging times.
I knew she would understand why I had given it to her.
The Dharma is a central part of this person’s life and the very fact that I had decided to choose a Buddha for her meant so much to her.
I wanted to remind her of her own potential for Buddhahood.”
Buddha donated by Danakosa Retreat Centre Scotland. Its a replica of a statue that is in Sarnath Museum metres from the place where the Buddha turned the wheel of the Dharma.
