Abandoned Buddha

2 years, 2 months ago

Went for my jog down the beach this morning and discovered a Buddha, submerged beneath the sand. It was very low tide, and under the receding waves I saw some yellow sticking out. I had to dig, and discovered a Buddha statue. It was large and heavy – I carried it back to the Beach Lodge where I live. I have put it in the lounge.
Just damn curious from whence it came?
Anyone lost a Buddha? Anyone leave it there for me to find? Anyone with answers, lemme know!
Lol, it was just an awesome blessing to discover it on an awesome day…..

kind of interesting, seems pretty difficult to loose a statue. I bet someone did it on purpose to share the religion they found suitable for them!

This might just be a Buddhist version of The Gideon Bible.

@darryl, i think you can post a picture in the thread by using photobucket, or you could just post it on the main page by clicking on the plus button that is in the up-right corner of the pictures section.

@seeker, I posted a pic under the images. Also under abandoned buddha – bad shot I’m afraid. I run a backpackers / lodge in Cape Town, and have some gentleman working for me that are christian. I thought it prudent and considerate to ask them if it would be fine to put the Buddha in the lounge. Had a perfect location for it! But alas, as you might have guessed, the idea did not gel with him! So I thought I best be respectful and instead give it to a little music pub down the road that I habitually frequent. There is a garden oout back where one can smoke stuff, they make a fire at night, and you can sit around with cool people and converse. So they were happy to host him. I took the shot last night and didn’t realize how dark it was. Will try later sometime to get a better picture that will reveal him more to you all.

Link to the image anyone?

And yeah, I’d take it as a sign to study up on this little Buddha of yours.
