Wats that stuff next to him and in his arm? Flowers?
Yes, flowers made into garlands …
Ohhh i was wondering if theres some weird thai flower that grows that way haha
LOL … fact is stranger than fiction, however not in this case … it’s possible they may be real or fake flowers, I didn’t closely inspect, I’ve seen both at shrines … obviously the real ones wither and need replacing all the time …
Yes but i wonder what people would think if they just saw you inspecting a garland of fake flowers haha
LOL … I’ll be sure and not make that faux pas !
Nice golden Buddha. 🙂
This is a very beautiful Buddha, do you know what he stands for Don?
He’s usually the centerpiece of the thai buddhist shrine, has 3 or 4 faces so he can see in every direction … as for what Buddha stands for … yes I do, but tend to stay out of religious discussions, as I think people are free to believe what they want to 🙂
Thank you Don, but I just asked for the official explanation of the Buddha.
It varies from Buddhist faith to Buddhist faith … some seem to idolise Buddha like a god, others I understand seem to point to a deeper more esoteric meaning and are anti idolatry … I favour the later, as I don’t believe God (or Buddha) is purely an external thing, and could be harmful to experience God/Buddha as purely existing outside ourselves.
Thank you Don, I prefer the esoteric meaning 😉
