Buddha in a Box


candle lighter
This is totally submitted with a light-hearted laugh because it struck me as amazing and funny. Today while looking through Barnes & Noble Bookstore I came across the Dalai Lama's Altar Box, complete with a little Buddha. It is a really cool little box. Yet the thought of a "Buddha in a Box" almost had me laughing a genuine heart-laugh. Bless HH, it is a nice idea but I can help but imagine Buddha himself getting a laugh too :) :)

I'm not a Buddhist but I do believe that God has
a sense of humor so why not all humanity!
If there were more humor in this world perhaps
there would be less conflict, on all levels! Just a
God bless,

I saw something like this the other day. It had the Buddha in with the book, but also came with some incense, a couple of small ink bowls and brush and small amount of paper. The idea was to read the book with the incense burning next to the Buddha, then to display your thoughts using the painting kit when you had finished the book. Was all very Zen looking.

Might actually go back to see how much it is, I quite liked it.


no, spent the money on other books!! but it is on my wish list for next time for sure!!
