A Pile of Laughing Buddhas for Travel Photo Thursday
There's no telling what the story behind this collection might be. I'll have to do some further investigation.
Not that I'm getting all religious, or anything like that, in my old age. I just like Buddhist stuff.
This one guy, Dali Lama XIV said, "KNOW THE RULES WELL, SO YOU CAN BREAK THEM EFFECTIVELY". Sounds like a reasonable plan, to me. So, that's what I try to do. I know all the rules in Okinawa, Japan.
They don't look too shabby in the photo at the top of the page, except maybe, for the one on right side of the roof that got knocked over.
When you zoom-in for a closer look, it appears they've been neglected. Or, could it be they were all mud wrestling and they're laughing because they took those big sticks on their shoulders and knocked that one Buddha out ?
This pile of Laughing Buddhas is located on the left side of HWY 84 about a mile past the Nago City Pineapple Park.
