Chuckie meets Buddha?!

Jordan said...

Yes! that is a comparison that easily resonates!

Creepy Cherub Buddha, keep away from knives!

Barry said...

I dunno. They're probably not any creepier than us human buddhas.

Jordan said...

Barry I had not considered that before, good point!

Uku said...

I can easily imagine that after those statue's owners have gone for bed, those creepy Buddhas starts doing some nasty things. Or joyful things.

Cool. :)

Jordan said...

going around meditating all over the place. Horrifying!

Merit??

Maybe it makes more sense keeping our money in one of these handsome guys instead of a bank..

Jordan said...

Mike, Jeff,

Yes they would make a good container for emptiness!

they may even come pre-filled!

Take care,
Jordan

Gee, those make me want to rush on down to my local Marukai market :/-

When I was on deployment, I amused my self by reading this book called "Rapture Ready' which was about Christian pop culture, and how there is even a sales convention which displays 'Jesus junk" (they call it), kitsch like Jesus bobbleheads and nightlights! It's been around for decades. The whole point of the said kitsch is, of course, to draw people closer to Jesus. It's maybe a uniquely American phenomenon?

Are we taking notes from this? Maybe we will not be so far behind!

Greg,

I have no idea what to say to that.


Chaplin,

I hope it is just a phase, it should die out in a couple of hundred years or so.

This reminds me of a story. Two Zen masters walk into a Smokey bar. There is a bunch of miscreants there a prostitute soliciting johns, a drug dealer, some junkies, and of course a bunch of drunks just a really shady place. One Zen master pounds his staff on the floor three times and says loudly “this is the perfection of reality!” The other looks around and says, “yeah, what a pity.”

Gassho,
Jordan
