“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. “
I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it here, but one of my favorite things to collects are the Laughing Buddha figures. Otherwise known as Budai Luohan or Hotei. I’m just so fond of them, must be because I look like one. What do you think? Hahahaha!
This one was something I bought on a stop over in Japan, back in 2000. I think it’s made out of ivory, Peace PETA!
These were part of a seven piece collection. Something I got from San Francisco China Town. Love them cause they’re shiny!
I got this the same time as the first one, at these souvenir store in Narita Airport/ Tokyo.
