Buddha

The Buddha was wise and compassionate.
The earliest representation of the Buddha was created by artists of Classical Greek. Hence, the first recorded images of the Buddha looked like Greek. As Buddhism spread to regions far and wide, the image of the Buddha was continuously modified according to the look and the culture of the local people.
As no Buddha image truly resembles the real Buddha, my preference is a Buddha image of symbolic representation.

This is my personal Buddha image.
The overall form resembles a figure in seated meditation.
The dotted circle at the top represents wisdom.
The heart shape at the bottom represents compassion.
By adopting this easy to visualize image, I can frequently remind myself of these two important qualities.

IF: Pet Peeves

The saffron-clad monk, widely admired in the West as an icon of nonviolent struggle against the occupation of his homeland, was described Wednesday by a top Chinese official as "a wolf wrapped in monk's robes, a devil with a human face and a beast's heart." ...
Though Chinese President Hu Jintao has often praised the role of traditional Chinese religions such as Buddhism and Confucianism in contributing to a "harmonious society," Tibetan Buddhism poses a particular difficulty because its religious leader, the Dalai Lama, also plays a political role. ...
( From Yahoo News article.)

“I’m fully committed to eliminate negative feelings among Tibetans and fear, distrust among Chinese,” he said Thursday in his third meeting with reporters this week.
Reminded of the latest slurs against him, he leaned back in his chair and howled with laughter. “As a Buddhist monk, whatever they call me, doesn’t matter.”
