LORD BUDDHA, painting by KISHOR KANAUJIYA, Nepal (copyright dell'artista) LINK: http://www.artbreak.com/Kishor%20Kanaujiya MONASTERY IN SHASTA As you say, Ann, Buddhas were my thing Long ago in flower power days we strewed petals to honour him sat in a lotus-like squat and emptied our minds. No mantras, no noise, no distraction only Buddha on his plinth and us with our backs to him our bottoms raised on kapok cushions, contemplating the wall. Buddha took no offence and finally broke the shackles in my mind eased my aching joints and made me – just by his wooden– tranquillity – and would break free from all that grief.
