~Buddha n Bamboo~


Buddha atop or
buddha at the bottom
buddha it is...
Bamboo in a pot or
bamboo in a jar
needs something ...
Buddha, the awakened
needs none and
remains one with everyone
Moving from the bamboo
to the buddha is
to just be...

Love your whimsy, "Moving from the bamboo to the buddha is
to just be...

I love how bamboo can just "be."
Not too much doing to them and they grace our living spaces with so much beauty.

Great photo!

Bamboo, here represents the ignorance in bliss and the buddha, ofcourse is the bliss in total awareness.

so true Miruh! they are just there and as rightly said grace our living spaces indeed. When you happen to place them in a transparent pot, even watching the roots spread beneth is a beauty...

Am glad you liked the picture. Thankyou for your kind words.

Thankyou Anna! sometimes, things just happen...

What else is there but to just be!

Merging Point said...

yes...but it is not one more wanting to be as something or someone and hence becomes a tough way to just be...
from becoming to just being as it is...

It's early, and I am definitely just "being" though my husband wants to chat. :)

I am intrigued by the image - thinking you created it somehow - those are all separate images, and this is created digitally, yes?

Merging Point said...

That sounds wonderful Ruth! though "being" is not just keeping quiet, so let him chat and you can continue to just be...

Yes Ruth, it was one of my trials on Picassa. separate images together representing as one. Does it not resemble the creation in a way?
