In the last couple of years, I have become quite curious about Buddhism. Last year, I picked up a couple of small books at the Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas in Niagara Falls (and yes there are really 10,000 buddha statues in this temple!) and had quickly thumbed through them. After my trip to Thailand, my interest has grown and a few weeks back started reading the Complete Idiots Guide to Understanding Buddhism (sounds odd but it’s actually a great starting point!). The ideologies truly resonate with me and I have tried to start applying them to my daily life. That being said, I wanted a Buddha statue as a reminder of those ideologies and so this little man is now a beautiful part of my home.
