As I headed off for a short trip to New Zealand I quickly plucked 3 little buddhas from my remaining stash to take with me. It’s a good opportunity in airports and traveling for little Buddhas to find a new home
Whilst staying with a dear friend on a small island I had the opportunity to meet up with another lovely friend from the UK. We had lived and worked together at a retreat centre in Wales. That 14 months had been such a rich and fruitful time of my life.
I had the urge to send one of the buddhas back with her to perhaps sit at a base of a tree in the retreat centre grounds.
I took the three out and chose the smallest one to ask her to take back in her luggage.
I was surprised and delighted when I looked up my list of donors to find the Buddha I had chosen had been donated by another team member and good friend from my time at the retreat centre. She had recently just moved on from the Centre and it felt totally appropriate for her donated Buddha to make a return journey and dwell in the beautiful gardens as a testimony to all these amazing women offer in sharing the dharma in that setting.
Buddha donated by Amritamati -Wales, Spain and beyond ….

Oh, I am so delighted to read this. How lovely to think that via my two good friends in Australia and Wales the Buddha I offered has returned ‘home’. I shall pay my respects to him next time I visit Tiratanaloka. Love to you Maitripala. xx

How beautiful Maitripala! Delighted you saw your friend and that the small little Buddha will return “home”. All an expression of interconnection and how small this universe can sometimes be.
May you be well
