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.
maybe it’s a sign you should do some studying on the buddha..
taken from sandy, gifted to you?
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, That is amazing. Definitely treat it as a sign. The Universe gave you a Buddha, wonderful! Please post an update when there is a follow up story!
@darryl, post a picture of it :)
@seeker, hey – how do I post a picture here?
@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.
@darryl, Awesome man!
@darryl, :) i was just about to listen to a talk about Siddharta Gautama the enlightened one, you can check it out if you wish:
@seeker, Thanks O!
Link to the image anyone?
And yeah, I’d take it as a sign to study up on this little Buddha of yours.
See the Buddha… kill the Buddha. :D
