Minor Buddha 7

Minor Buddha 7

The Big Buddha has minor Buddhas, one for each day of the week. For YOU, your minor Buddha would be the same as the day of the week you were born on. Born on Monday, your minor Buddha would be the Monday one. Also some of the minor Buddhas don’t have weekdays !

I only found out about this after I’d returned from taking the photos, and I know all the days apart from Thursday. So sorry Thursday people.

In Thai the weekday Buddhas are called ‘Pra Bah-jam-wan-gert’, or at least that’s my best phonetic representation.

  1. Interesting marketing ploy! When one knows who Buddha was, and what he believed in, and stood for, none of this makes any sense! It’s always amazes me how the public will make up anything in the name of saints, sages and other great enlightened Beings to make money from those that know no different. Thanks for posting this Don, it is enlightening to see what goes on out there! Also quite sad.

    1. LOL, agreed, idolatry almost certainly was the opposite of what the Buddha wanted and who he was and was about … I guess people will make a living some how or other …

      1. True………….I guess the ‘selling Jesus’ concept has worked for millions! 🙂

      2. I’d hazard a guess selling religion is very profitable indeed, the Catholic church for instance is reported to be one of the wealthiest organisations in the world 😀
