Kill the Buddha
Designed by delosangeles
The characters in this design are styled on Japanese Kanji characters, but are actually in English. If you look closely, you can read what this tshirt says. In Zen Buddhism, “Kill the Buddha” refers to how one should not worship and idolise scriptures, teachers, or statues, but rather trust in one's own abilities, in one's own heart and mind. Obviously, nothing literal should be taken from this design. By externalising spirituality, one can become caught up in acquiring knowledge and spiritual attainments, adding another retreat or technique 'notch to the belt', so to speak. Therefore, the idea behind the design is very much related to _spiritual materialism_. The central character means ‘Buddha’ in Japanese Kanji.

love the shirts

by Karen B. on Jun 20, 2018

I'm know around the office for my t-shirts ...they have to say something; whether it be historical figures, musicians or a political statement. Your shirts have a good fit and they wash and wear well. I've spent big bucks on T-shirts that aren't nearly as durable as the quality shirts you offer. Thanks for putting out a quality product
