A Belated Happy Birthday Buddha, Wherever You Are !


It's been quite awhile since I did a post for Travel Photo Thursday.

So, before digging through the photo files, I visited Budget Travelers Sandbox.

And, found out I missed Buddha's birthday celebrations in Seoul, Korea.

That's why I dug up this Buddha photo.

The smiling Buddha is probably the most recognized one around the world.

But, there are many other Buddha statues and many other Buddhas.

An excellent article on the topic can be found at Muza-chan's Gate to Japan. 

The smiling Buddha is my favorite but, I don't want to take sides.

So, Happy Birthday Buddha, wherever you are !
