Toes of the Buddha
Even Buddha had toes that wriggled in grass and sand. As a baby, he played with his toes. As an old man, he bathed them in a stream.
Buddha Holds a Vase
It's a small thing really like most of the worthwhile things in life.
Buddha of Infinite Compassion
I get more comfort from images of Buddha than I do from Christian symobols. I was raised Catholic and images of Jesus' suffering always caused a great anxiety in me. I'm not a Buddhist, since I can't stomach following a ritual. When I look at images of Buddha, I feel comforted. There is not a helping hand to pull me up, there is a smile, that teaches me to relax and accept - that the moment is where I must be.
